3largebananas(overripe browned bananas, peeled and frozen in advance)
½tablespoonmilk(or milk of choice, if needed)
¼teaspoonvanilla extract(or vanilla bean or vanilla paste)
Freeze the Bananas
To start out, wait until your bananas are nicely browned and leopard-spotted. Peel and cut into 5-6 chunks then place the banana pieces into an airtight freezer storage bag or container.
3 large bananas
Make Your Nice Cream
Set your frozen bananas out for about 5 minutes while you prep everything else needed. Grab a food processor, blender, vitamix, or even an immersion blender if you have a great big cup for blending. *There are easy commercial nice cream makers, but this is pretty simple without them!
Place the banana chunks from 3 large bananas into your food processor along with vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and cocoa powder. Blend until you reach a soft-serve consistency, adding milk as needed if you want.
