  • 4 large very ripe bananas sliced and frozen, about 2 - 3 cups (should freeze for at least 2 hours)
  • 2-4 tablespoons cocoa powder more makes it richer and more bitter
  • 2-4 tablespoons peanut butter more makes it more peanut butter-y
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk of choice optional
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup optional
  1. Place frozen ripe banana slices, cocoa powder, peanut butter, vanilla extract, almond extract, and cinnamon into a high powered food processor.

  2. Blend until VERY smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  3. Optional: blend in milk and maple syrup. The milk will thin the mixture out and the maple syrup will add more sweetness.
  4. Taste and re-season, if necessary.
  5. Serve immediately as soft serve OR pour into an airtight container and freeze until it's firm enough to be scooped with an ice cream scoop (at least 2 hours).
  6. If you're freezing this for longer than a few hours, the mixture may become un-scoopable. If this is the case, let sit at room temperature for 30-60 minutes, or until it's scoop-able again!

Nutritional information is for half the recipe using 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, and no milk or maple syrup.
