Dessert Anyone?

Happy Sunday evening! I wanted to post a quick recipe that is absolutely amazing, delicious and only a few simple ingredients. If you have ever wanted to have a healthier alternative to ice cream, this is it!

Ingredients:

4 Frozen Bananas

1/4 cup Dark chocolate chunks

1 Teaspoon Vanilla extractimg_2390

To start off you will need some frozen bananas. We usually freeze whatever bananas ripen quickly. Tonight I used 4 frozen bananas broken into smaller chunks, maybe about 3 pieces per banana. You want them to slightly thaw out, I suggest leaving them out for about 5 minutes.  Next, add them to a food processor. img_2387

I like to process the bananas first to get them moving to an ice cream like texture before adding any other ingredients. It works either way and when it comes to dessert, as long as it tastes good, there are no rules. So after you get it looking a bit more like ice cream, add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor. You may need to use something to scrape the sides if it the mixture is getting stuck on the sides. After you process the bananas, chocolate and vanilla, you should get something that looks like this.img_2389

Scoop it into some small bowls and place back in the freezer. I like to leave it in the freezer for a few hours until it is rock solid because I like to eat desserts a little at a time. When fully frozen it makes it harder to eat quickly, strange I know.

I hope you enjoy this dessert. Feel free to add as many interesting ingredients into it as you can imagine. Blueberries are great, a bit of honey works as does a dash of cinnamon. The world is your dessert dish, just add bananas.
