Chocolate Banana Ice-Cream

Prep Time 10 mins
Course Dessert


  • 3 bananas, perfectly ripe (not over ripe, not under ripe)
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder (the good stuff, people)
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • Raw milk, as needed for blending
  • Real maple syrup to taste, optional


  • Peel the bananas, chop them into large chunks, put 'em in a plastic bag, and stick 'em in the freezer for a few hours or until frozen.
  • When the correct ice-cream making time comes, pop those banana chunks out of the freezer and into your food processor or blender. Add in the cocoa powder and vanilla.
  • Blend, baby, blend. I usually need to add about 1/4 cup of raw milk in order to get the bananas to blend properly. I just drizzle a bit in, scrape the sides with a spatula, and then keep blending. If the banana chunks are getting stuck and not really moving, I drizzle a bit more milk in. We're aiming for the right silky consistency here people – think ice cream.
