After several days of being stuck inside thanks to crazy heat and humidity, this 2 Ingredient Chocolate Nice Cream was a lifesaver in our house last week – it was even too hot to go swimming in our pool! When I found myself removing the boys from in front of the open freezer for the third time in the space of half an hour (it was nice and cold according to them!) it was time to distract them, so I decided to enlist their help to make this 2 Ingredient Chocolate Nice Cream together for our afternoon tea.
We’ve always got a container of sliced up bananas in the freezer, and I grabbed the equivalent of two whole bananas to make this ice cream. It’s sooo easy to make, simply add the frozen sliced banana to a food processor, add a little cacao powder (I used a tablespoon) and blitz for 20 – 30 seconds until the mixture becomes nice and creamy.
This recipe made enough for myself and both the boys and you can easily alter the quantities depending on how many little mouths you have to feed. Before making this Chocolate Nice Cream, it’s really important to make sure your food processor has the power to blitz the frozen banana. If you are uncertain, slice the frozen banana VERY finely and add a little to your food processor to test.
