Easy & Healthy “Ice Cream”

Please, please, please don’t be fooled by the lack of color in the picture above; this really is about the most cheerful dessert you can make in less than 5 minutes! So easy anyone could’ve thought this up (as I’m sure they have) but go ahead and take the credit while you’re putting this together in the blender. All you’ll need is:

  • 1 frozen banana (I recommend an overripe one for it to be sweeter)
  • Nut butter (I used almond)
  • Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Nibs (the secret ingredient!)

The measurements for these ingredients is really up to you. If you’re wondering, I used about 1 generous tablespoon of almond butter and about half the container of the Dark Chocolate Nibs.┬áJust mix all these ingredients in a blender and voila! You may want to only do half the banana first with the full measurements of the other ingredients, then blend in the other half once it’s mushier. Wow. Never though I’d use “mushier” in a sentence. The Dark Chocolate Nibs really do make all the difference! Of course the dessert is still good without them, but they do help. If there isn’t a Trader Joe’s in your area, you could use a dark chocolate chip alternative, though these are a lot closer to actual cocoa versus the store candy, so get it as natural as it can be with none of that milk chocolate stuff. Happy blending!
