Dark Chocolate-Chip Nice Cream (paleo, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, nut free)
What makes this ice cream nice? Well the base is only ONE ingredient (frozen banana), it takes mere minutes to make, and it straight up tastes like gelato. You can make nice cream any flavor your want, but I like this basic vanilla with dark chocolate recipe for a delicious antioxidant boost. The fiber in bananas prevent spikes in blood sugar and keep it on the lower end of the glycemic load scale. When paired with protein and fat, bananas are great as a snack between meals. They’re also a good source of energy both before and after workouts…ice cream after training anyone?
1 frozen banana, chopped (peel and chop your bananas before freezing them to make this step way easier)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 squares 85% dark chocolate
Blend banana and vanilla in a food processor until smooth. Add dark chocolate and pulse until mixed in. Enjoy immediately.
