Chocolate & Banana "Ice Cream"

Chocolate & Banana "Ice Cream"

Now that I’m hooked on banana “ice cream” (an easy, creamy frozen dessert simply made of bananas) I decided to try adding chocolate, which is never a bad decision, in my opinion.

This dessert is so easy to make.  Just like with the original one-ingredient version, it is the creamiest and at its best when made to order.  I keep a bag of frozen banana slices in the freezer so that I can make it on demand, with or without chocolate.  And with or without chocolate, it makes a special treat when served with homemade whipped cream in homemade ice cream “cone” cups

Chocolate & Banana "Ice Cream"
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
Bananas and chocolate chips are the only ingredients in this refeshing frozen treat.
  • Bananas, peeled and sliced (1-2 per serving)
  • Chocolate chips, chopped
  • Homemade ice cream cones, optional
  1. Place the sliced bananas into a Ziploc bag and freeze them for several hours until they are completely hard.
  2. Put the frozen banana slices into a stand-up mixer or a food processor.
  3. Beat the bananas on medium-high until they start to break into chunks.
  4. At this point, stir them with a spoon to see if they start mashing up and getting creamy.
  5. Continue beating the bananas in the mixer or pulsing them in the food processor until they are creamy, stirring in the chopped chocolate at the end.
  6. Scoop the chocolate & banana "ice cream" into bowls or homemade ice cream cones and serve it immediately.
  7. If you are using a stand-up mixer, you might need to add a dash of milk to help beat the bananas because without a blade they don't chop up as easily.
  8. For a slightly sweeter version, mix a dash of milk or cream and a dash of sugar (only about 1 Tbsp of each) into the bananas.

  1. Oh my goodness did you just create some work for me!! We did Strawberry Ice Cream yesterday and my daughter’s first comment was “When will we make banana ice cream?” Now she is sitting with me and saw your home made “cones” and she wants to make those too. I see my afternoon nap disappearing…!!

    I hope you liked the banana ice cream and cones (and I hope you got your nap, too! 🙂 Fortunately, both recipes are pretty quick and easy.
