My son's all time favorite dessert is simple chocolate ice cream. I get so ecstatic anytime I can figure out a healthier verison to his favorite foods. I love this recipe too because you don't need an ice cream maker to make it! Love that! I bought an ice cream maker this summer, but wanted to create a recipe that didn't require one. This is also perfect for those of you that are looking for a dariy free ice cream.
I love hearing the words, "Mommy, can I have some of that home made ice cream we made?" The fact that he helped me make it, makes him happy and excited to eat it. This came out so delicious! I hope you enjoy it too, my son sure did.
CHOCOLATE ALMOND MILK ICE CREAM
1 cup almond milk
2 frozen bananas (freeze in small pieces)
1 heaping tablespoon of raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon raw honey or agave
Blend all of the ingredients together in a high speed blender. The consistency should be thicker than a smoothie. Pour the mixture into a small baking dish or other flat container and chill in the freezer for about 2 hours.
Take the ice cream out of the freezer and scoop. Eat plain or top it with your favorite toppings. My son loves it plain and simple, but I might top it with sweet cacao nips and berries.
Store the ice cream in a sealed or covered container in the freezer. Once you have had in the freezer for a few hours, it may seem really hard. Just leave it out a few minutes before serving and it will be soft enough to scoup.
