Amy's Cherry Chocolate Nice-Cream
CHERRY CHOCOLATE NICE-CREAM
By: Amy Longard
Makes 3 - 4 servings
4 overripe bananas
1/3 cup cocoa powder or raw cocao powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Non-dairy milk of your choice, optional
1/4 - 1/3 cup frozen dark sweet cherries or sour cherries depending on your taste
Optional topping: unsweetened coconut flakes
Chop the bananas into small rounds and freeze them overnight on parchment lined baking tray.
Add all ingredients - except cherries and coconut flakes - to a food processor or high-speed blender. Process until completely smooth (similar to a soft serve consistency). If you find your blender isn’t strong enough to handle the frozen banana you may need to let them thaw a bit and/or add a bit of non-dairy milk to get things going.
Once you've reached a nice, smooth texture, add the cherries, then pulse for a minute or so or until the cherries are evenly distributed, but still a bit chunky.
For the best texture you’ll want to enjoy your nice-cream immediately, but you can freeze leftovers and thaw again before serving. When serving, top your nice-cream with whole frozen cherries and unsweetened coconut flakes.
