Cacao Banana Ice Cream Breakfast Bowl (raw, low-fat)

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may notice that I have a variation of banana ice cream 4-5 times a week, minimum. This is a recipe that I make almost every single day because it is easy, delicious, and extremely versatile.

I purchase 40lb boxes of bananas at the wholesale produce market once or twice a month, and since I can’t get through all of the fresh bananas before they spoil, I freeze them when they are ripe and spotty. From this, banana ice cream ensues 🙂Cacao Banana Ice Cream Breakfast Bowl (raw, low-fat)

My favorite combo is what I am going to share with you today, cacao banana ice cream. It is raw, vegan, gluten-free, low in fat and something that I never get tired of, or at least not yet, even after 3 years of eating this way.

As for toppings, I always just use what I have in my home. Don’t stress about using particular toppings for this recipe. I encourage you to have fun with it, and design a beautiful and unique bowl of your own. At the bottom of this post, I have included a ton of variations I have made over the last few months, check those out if you want more ideas 🙂

Ingredients

Banana Ice Cream

Toppings of choice, such as:


Instructions

  1. Place bananas and cacao poweder into the food processor and run until smooth and fluffy, scraping the sides down as needed.
  2. Add toppings of choice.

Notes

You can also make this in a high speed blender. I have made it successfully with a Vitamix, but you must use a tamper in order for it to work. Just be sure to thaw the bananas for about 10 minutes prior to ease the blending.

Try and use organic wherever possible! 🙂
