Chocolate banana ice cream – I have these amazing chocolate banana ice cream and ice cream popsicles to share with you all. The same recipe can be used to make ice cream as well popsicles. It tastes creamy, delicious and out of this world. Yes, this is an ice cream I make during hot summers.
To make chocolate banana ice cream we don’t need an ice cream maker and all we need to do is blend well, freeze then blend well again. The fourth time I got a really smooth and creamy mixture that I was surprised at. It even blends up the banana fiber well. I have used cane sugar, you can replace it with honey, coconut sugar, refined sugar or any other sweetener of your choice.
