  • Four Bananas
  • One heaped tablespoon of Cocoa
  • One teaspoon of Vanilla Essence

You'll also need:

  • Knife
  • Handheld Blender ( I would actually suggest using a normal blender)
  • Spoon
  • Container with lid
  • Jug

If you only have bananas, you can also make this... just follow the recipe, but leave out the vanilla essence and the cocoa. The frozen bananas are the base... what you combine then with it can be actually anything of your choice.

Step 2: Cut the Bananas

Cut the bananas into smaller pieces, because when your going to mash it, you don't want to break your blender.

Step 3: Add Bananas to Container and Freeze

Step 4: Blend Everything Together

After freezing the process is quick. Blend the frozen bananas,cocoa and vanilla essence all together till smooth and creamy (like Ice cream). When blending, take it slowly, you don't want to break your blender!

Tip: I would actually suggest using a normal blender.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Enjoy your healthy choc-banana alternative to ice-cream! For a more sweeter version, replace the cocoa with some chocolate spread! That won't be so healthy, but it will be much more sweeter! You can also just leave out the cocoa.
