I adore ice cream and all things that behave similar to ice cream. So, frozen bananas blended with other stuff that end up seeming like ice cream, count me in. This is an easy blender recipe with not many ingredients, keep things simple.
- 2 frozen bananas, in chunks
- 1/4 cup (or less) rolled oats (I did less)
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 cup nondairy milk of choice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup (or less) nondairy chocolate chips
- optional 10-15 drops of vanilla stevia
Toss everything except the chocolate chips in the blender and blend. I used a Blendtec Twister Jar and the ice cream setting on the blender, worked out perfect. If you don’t have that, any other high powered blender will work, you just may have to turn off the blender to scrape down the sides then turn it back on again couple of times. Blend until smooth, put the chocolate chips in and blend for about 5 seconds.
I put mine in the freezer after I made it, to harden up a little bit while I was cleaning up my mess and such. I topped it with cacao nibs and dried mulberries too!
p.s. if you haven’t had dried mulberries over ice cream/smoothie bowls/acai bowls/etc, you should! They get hard and crunchy and are amazing!
