Over the summer I saw a post on for ice-cream-less banana ice cream.  I meant to make it back then, but never did.  You can use the banana as a base for whatever variety you think of.  I love Ben & Jerry's "Chunky Monkey," so tonight I tried to make my own version.

I made enough for 2.  I don't recommend making this unless you will eat it right away.  The consistency is like soft serve ice cream, & I don't know how well it does with re-freezing.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings)
Basic Recipe
to taste
to taste
Vanilla extract
A little
Milk of choice or yogurt as needed
Skinny Monkey Additions
Walnuts, broken into pieces
1-2 Tbsp
chocolate chips
Other Suggested Additions (pick whichever you like)
2 tsp
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Nuts, broken in pieces
¼ cup
1 Tbsp
Nut butter


1.  Cut 2 ripe bananas into pieces & freeze them on a parchment paper-lined small baking sheet for 1-2 hours. Don't freeze longer than that, or you may have to thaw them a little & add liquid (milk, water, yogurt...)

2.  Place the banana pieces, nutmeg, & vanilla extract in a food processor (a mini food processor works great).  Pulse & scrape frequently.  Blend on high as the mixture becomes smoother, & add little milk or yogurt if needed.   Blend with the cocoa powder &/or nut butter if you are using it.

3.  Once smooth, add your toppings (walnuts, chocolate chips, etc) & mix well.

(LT - with cocoa powder, RT - without)
