Healthy 3 Ingredient Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

Chocolate Banana Ice Cream tastes EXACTLY like chocolate ice cream and is made with only 3 ingredients and they're all healthy. My favorite way to eat it is as soft serve right out of the blender but you can also freeze so it's firm enough to scoop into ice cream cones.

This Chocolate Banana Ice Cream recipe has been on serious repeat here for weeks. Like, every other day kind of repeat. I must have made it four times before I realized that I had to share the recipe with you. It's seriously the easiest healthy ice cream recipe there is and you would NEVER know it's good for you.

The first time I made it I threw the three ingredients in my Vitamix without measuring. My handsome man, who's super skeptical about healthy treats, rolled his eyes and told me I was making mashed up bananas, not ice cream. He changed his tune when he tried it and asked me to make more when his bowl was empty.

And honestly, how could he not?

Just look at that scoop!

EASY TO MAKE HUMMUS 

With added Protein

Hummus already contains some protein from chickpeas (garbanzo beans), but it often doesn’t add up to a lot of protein per serving. Adding some shelled hemp seeds to the mixture can enhance protein content and increase healthful fatty acids, too.

Cooked: a natural history of transformation

Michael Pollan

Explored through the lenses of the four natural elements – fire, water, air and earth – Cooked is an enlightening and compelling look at the evolution of what food means to us through the history of food preparation and its universal ability to connect us. Highlighting our primal human need to cook, the series urges a return to the kitchen to reclaim our lost traditions and to forge a deeper, more meaningful connection to the ingredients and cooking techniques that we use to nourish ourselves. The four part docuseries is available on Netflix.
