Chocolate ice cream pops for breakfast? Sure! This healthy version gives you a sweet start to the day. Perfect for a summer treat, too!
You can whip up a batch of this quickly and the best part is that it’s kid-approved.
All Natural Chocolate “Ice Cream”
- 2/3 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 pitted date
- 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter
- 2 tbsp. cocoa
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- unsweetened coconut flakes for garnish (optional)
Mix ingredients in a blender until smooth. Freeze, garnish with coconut then enjoy! (I place mine in cups with straws to create popsicles.)
If you prefer a soft-serve type of texture instead of a pop, use frozen bananas in the recipe and skip the freezer. Your treat is ready to eat immediately!
If I were making these for only myself, I would replace the cocoa with chocolate protein powder.
