I love ice cream. I used to love Ben and Jerry’s, although I gave that up. Now I am enjoying experimenting with paleo ingredients to make indulgent ice cream treats that do not leave me with a sugar crash, or that super-sweet aftertaste that makes me want to run and brush my teeth. The more I focus on eating real foods and the less I taste refined sweeteners, the more delicious these nutritious paleo ingredients become to me. I now like my paleo versions of ice cream better than the stuff I find at the grocery store. This is a delicious and refreshing frozen treat for the Fourth of July, or any hot summer day.
This is a super-duper easy and delicious summer treat . . . dairy-free ice cream that contains only two ingredients and no added sugars – just the sweet deliciousness of fresh fruit and the antioxidant power of cacao. I added honey to the ingredients list, put the honey is truly optional, especially if you have over-ripe bananas that are already naturally very sweet. The honey-less result tastes very much like a dark chocolate covered banana, and I love it.
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp honey (optional)
Blend together in a food processor, freeze in your ice cream maker, and enjoy. Ice cream does not get any easier (or guilt-free) than that.
