Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

Last month we shared with you a two-ingredient Banana Ice Cream. (Have you tried it yet?) Today we’re going to show you another way to make this delicious treat, AND we are adding some chocolate, so you know it’ll be amazing! 🙂

I love this recipe because it feels like a treat. It tastes like a treat… but guys… it’s totally healthy, and so easy!

My girls are obsessed with ice cream! (With me as their mama it was bound to happen… I blame genetics!) We’ve had healthy banana ice cream on repeat this summer and it’s the perfect way to beat the heat!
