Healthy Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


  • 6 Medium Ripe Bananas (Cut into 1 inch pieces and frozen)
  • 3 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (Organic if you can)
  • 6-8 thin slices Fresh Strawberries (Organic if you can)
  • 1/4 cup Cream (Organic if you can)
  • 1/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips (Organic if you can)


1. Cut 6 ripe bananas into 1" circles and freeze. When frozen toss them into the food processor with 1/4 cup of cream and 3 tbs of unsweetened cocoa powder until smooth. Scoop out ice cream into a bowl. Cut 6-8 strawberries into slices and gently fold into the ice cream with 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips! Eat immediately as soft serve or put into a glass container with a lid and freeze for hard ice cream.

(I press plastic wrap right down on top of the ice cream before I put on the lid to prevent freezer burn.)
No added sweeteners, no chemical junk, no ice cream maker necessary--> All goodness!
