Banana-squash ice cream with chocolate chips

Frozen bananas spell ice cream. One ingredient, one food processor, it is as easy as that. Creamy and sweet. Bananas just got a whole new meaning. Still, it is great to add some other ingredients as well. To mix things up a little. Try squash, for instance. It’s also sweet and adds volume to your ice cream. Also, it is low in calories and helps to balance the bananas – they are not very calorie-dense if you compare with sugar, but do provide lots of carbohydrates compared to vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 3 diced and frozen bananas
  • 150 grams of squash
  • 3 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • chocolate chips (best if you made the chocolate yourself)

How to prepare?
Cut the squash into smaller pieces and put into food processor with frozen bananas. Combine until smooth and creamy. Add cocoa powder. The more, the darker the chocolate. Bananas are sweet, so usually you don’t need any more sweeteners, but you can add pureed dates or honey if you wish. Cut your chocolate into smaller pieces and mix into the ice cream.

    • It’s great as a filler! Quite neutral in taste and you can use other ingredients to give the ice cream its unique taste. I also made a vanilla ice cream with a similar recipe (omit the cocoa powder and add some vanilla).
