Banana Chocolate Good
The name of this is because TG and I couldn't agree if it was more like a frozen pudding or a soft serve ice "cream". We did both agree it is FANTASTIC. The hashtag? Because we used a Bella Rocket Extract Pro to make it. We kind of love this blender. It has a 700w motor, and when we got it, one of the first things my daughter did was throw coffee beans in it. I screamed "STOP!" and she stopped the blender. I was convinced she might have broken it because coffee beans in a blender? In that couple of seconds between her starting the blender and me figuring out why it was so noisy- the coffee beans were ground to a espresso fineness.
So for this treat? No problem.
This can be made vegan easily by using a non-dairy milk. We used regular milk.
Banana Chocolate Goodness
Makes 2 servings
You will need:
2 1/2 frozen bananas- we just peel them, cut them half, and freeze them on cookie sheets, then put them in a zipper bag in the freezer
1/2 of a frozen ripe avocado- same thing as above
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbsp. sweetener of choice if you like it sweet- we used organic cane sugar
1 pinch of salt- we used French grey
3 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder- Oh the antioxidant goodness! We used a raw cocoa powder, but use whatever kind you like
Just put it all in your blender and blend until smooth. The photo above isn't quite as smooth as the one I'm eating right now- because TG blended my serving just a second or two longer.
It's all full of nice healthy things, but it's absolutely a treat.
