just better.® ChocoBaNutty Nice Cream
4 Ripe Bananas, sliced and frozen
3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 Tablespoons all-natural (no sugar added) peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
6 Tablespoons just better.® prebiotic fiber
Splash of unsweetened almond milk or another dairy-free milk (for consistency)
A pinch of sea salt
Optional Toppings: Dark chocolate shavings, peanuts, and/or cocoa nibs
Place the frozen banana slices in a blender or food processor.
Add the unsweetened cocoa powder, peanut butter, and just better.® prebiotic fiber to the blender.
Blend on high until the mixture becomes creamy and smooth.
**Depending on the power of your blender, you might need to stop and scrape down the sides occasionally to ensure everything gets blended evenly. If the mixture is too thick, add a splash of unsweetened dairy-free milk to help it along. 😉
Once blended into a creamy consistency, taste and stir in a pinch of sea salt if desired. The salt can enhance the flavors, especially the peanut butter.
For a soft-serve texture, enjoy the Nice Cream right away. If planning for later, portion it into individual freezer-safe bowls. For the best texture, consume within a week of freezing.
Remember, the longer it stays in the freezer, the more its texture can change, potentially becoming icier or harder. It's always best to consume homemade frozen desserts within a week or two for the best flavor and consistency, but it should still be safe to eat within a month if stored correctly.
Before serving, sprinkle with 70% dark chocolate shavings or cocoa nibs for added guilt-free crunch and flavor!
ROTW Tip: You can customize this recipe by adding other mix-ins like chopped nuts, coconut shreds, or some berries! Ooooh!! The possibilities are endless.
