This is one of my easiest go to dessert recipes for my family when we want a quick and healthy treat for Dessert Night.
Every Friday Night we have either home-made pizza or sushi and a movie night!! Of course we have to indulge in dessert too!! I like to change it up a bit so we don’t have the same treat every week. These “desserts” are pretty healthy and I notice that if I make something too frequently they boys will soon feel like they are eating something healthy and they wont want it anymore. I have a few other recipes that I keep up my sleeve for dessert night as well and plan on doing a Dessert Night Round up blog post for you to share all of my healthy go-to, nutrition packed recipes!!
On the menu for tomorrow night is 3 ingredient chocolate ice cream. This is actually a pro biotic, potassium and protein packed bowl of deliciousness but don’t tell the babies!! Oh and let’s not forget the great source of omegas as well that come with Shaklee’s Life Shake mix.
3 Bananas chopped and frozen
1/4 C. Cocoa Powder (I have used Cocoa Nibs before but its just a little too bitter for the boys)
1/4 C. Shaklee Life Shake Mix in Chocolate
That is it folks!!
First you need to chop up a few bananas and freeze them. I always have frozen bananas on hand because I buy 2 bunches weekly. I feed the kids some for snacks through the week and the rest will get chopped up for smoothies or froze for future baked goods or this recipe!! I’m always needing bananas!!
I have a vitamix (that I would die without…..no seriously…….I would die without it……I use it 3x a day at least……They should use me as a spokes person but they arent) that is really amazing and has a “frozen dessert” option on the settings. This is a very high-powered blender so if you have a regular blender I would recommend adding a little dairy free milk to help it along.
I just dump all the ingredients into my best friend……I mean blender and hit the start button!! It pulverizes it into a beautiful chocolate custard.
After this dump it into a container of your choice, pop the lid on and freeze for a couple of hours.
It’s so fast and easy and so much healthier than store bought!!
I hope you and your kiddos enjoy this recipe. I am excited to try and mix it up with some more flavors in the future!! Of course I will do a blog post on that for you as well!!
What healthy recipe do you guys have for “Dessert Night” in your house?? I would love to hear!!
PS~I apologize for the poor quality in pictures. We are in the middle of a kitchen renovation so everything (including the lighting) is a wreck right now!!
