|Yes, this is just bananas, cocoa powder and peanut butter|
Last night I cut up 3 whole bananas into slices about half an inch thick. I stuck them in a freezer bag overnight. This morning I dumped the bananas into the food processor with a dollop (probably about 2 tbsp) natural peanut butter and 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder. Then, I turned on the food processor. It was loud. I let it run a minute or so, and then shut it off. I repeated this a few times, scraping the top occasionally. Then it happened... instead of chopped bananas, the concoction turned creamy and looked JUST LIKE ICE CREAM! I excitedly dished out some for my 2 kids and myself. We had ice cream for breakfast! And it was healthy!!! I honestly didn't really detect much of the banana flavor. My husband, who I insisted try a bite, said it tasted just like bananas. I'm thinking of all the possibilities: banana and cherry, banana and pineapple, chocolate banana, coconut banana, banana walnut... lots of ideas. You need to try this! I couldn't believe how well it worked! The grocer is going to wonder why I'm suddenly buying so many more bananas.
