I scream! You scream! We all scream for nice cream!! Wait a minute, that’s not how that goes. But why can’t we turn a classic into a modern-day non-dairytale? See what I did there?!
Okay, fine… I’ve had maybe a few too many scoops of nice cream and can no longer think like a calm, relaxed adult.
But who cares, because it’s summer!! We can still enjoy the last bits of summer, and perhaps make it feel just a bit longer with today’s chocolate nice cream recipe. 🙂
You in? Let’s make this!
How to Make Chocolate Nice Cream
It’s super duper easy to make today’s nice cream recipe. Yep, it’s super and it’s duper. Easy. Lol. Check out the simple steps below:
Add Bananas & Blend
Add bananas to a food processor and blend until crumbly. This is the simple banana ice cream mixture.
Add & Blend Again
Now, add in maple syrup and vanilla to increase the deliciousness of your nice cream. Blend everything until smooth and creamy. Here is your basic nice cream mixture.
Add Cacao Powder
Now, add in your cacao powder. Blend it all together until the cacao is well incorporated. You just made chocolate nice cream!

Ivana says, “Made the recipe exactly as described and it turned out perfect! So freaking good too!”

How to Store Your Nice Cream
Store your nice cream in a reusable ice cream container for up to 1 week. Just make sure to thaw it for a few minutes before enjoying. I don’t recommend making your chocolate nice cream too far in advance as it’s made with whole ingredients and won’t stay super fresh and yummy for longer than 1 week. 😉
