Banana Chocolate Soft Serve

9 Mar


Sometimes you really just want ice cream. But sometimes you don’t really feel up to slurping down heavy cream. Life is full of tough choices!

At last Saturday’s 5K, I finished with a 7:01 pace, even with tying my shoe halfway through. I’d really like to break through the 7-min pace threshold in the next one, so I’m trying to slim down a few lbs, so that at least I’ll be a smidge lighter. It may mean making some more tough decisions…

So, the other night, instead of regular ice cream, I made fake banana ice cream (adapted from this), and it was truly glorious. And no sugar needed at all! Definitely will be repeated. 3 ingredients and 4 minutes later, and ta-da! Dessert for me and Rafe.


  • 2 frozen bananas (we usually stick them in the freezer once they are super-ripe)
  • 2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp almond milk


  • Chop the peeled frozen bananas into a few smaller pieces (don’t throw them in whole).
  • Throw everything into a food processor. Process the heck out of it for a few minutes, or until smooth and creamy– soft serve consistency. [I had to use a spatula to get the stuff off the sides, and get the frozen banana chunks back into the right spots in the processor so they could be processed better…]
