Speedy Banana Cocoa Ice Cream

I crave ice cream daily. It’s just the truth.

So I thought I’d try this frozen banana business since it’s an ice cream that is ready for snacking quickly! You just need frozen bananas, cocoa, vanilla, and more chocolate.

Top this with hot fudge for a remixed banana split!

Go ahead and freeze a few freckled bananas. Blend it up! Add malt powder even (Man! Now I wish I would’ve!) and enjoy every bite without worrying about having to wear stretchy pants for life.

Speedy Banana Cocoa Ice Cream
Recipe adapted from the kitchn


  • 3 bananas, peeled and frozen for 2+ hours
  • 1 T cocoa powder
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 T milk
  • chocolate chips, optional


  1. Cut the bananas into pieces and process in your food processor or powerful blender with all of the ingredients until smooth. Serve immediately! It’ll be the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. If there’s any leftover freeze in an airtight container. Remove from the freezer for 5-10 minutes to soften a bit before scooping. Serve with a sprinkling of cocoa powder and handful of chocolate chips.
