Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

This Chocolate Banana Ice Cream is like eating a chocolate-covered banana. When I think of chocolate-covered bananas, it reminds me of summer, which reminds me of the County Fair, which makes me happy. And if it’s gluten-free, low-carb, guilt-free Chocolate Banana Ice Cream, then it makes me VERY happy indeed. 🙂

RECIPE

  • 2 (14 oz.) cans of unsweetened coconut milk
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • 1 cup of 73% cacao dark chocolate chips or chop up a bar of dark chocolate
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  1. Mash the banana with a fork and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat coconut milk and agave to a boil.
  3. Reduce immediately to a simmer, then remove from heat.
  4. Mix in the chocolate, salt, and vanilla, stirring constantly until chips are completely melted.
  5. Cool mixture in pan on counter for at least an 1 hour or refrigerate.
  6. Add mixture to your ice cream maker, following directions per your machine.
  7. When ice cream looks like soft-serve stage, pour in mashed bananas and continue to process to desired texture.
