Ingredients:

  • 5 bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
  • 2 tbsp nut butter – I used raw almond butter

Directions:

  1. Place frozen bananas, almond butter, and coconut in your food processor. Pulse until a large mass develops. If the banana isn’t binding, try adding 1-2 tbsp non-dairy milk or allowing the bowl to sit for 1 minute or so to defrost slightly
  2. Drop ball of soft serve into a large bowl and mix in walnuts and chocolate chunks.
  3. Serve immediately

**You could try adding cacao powder and a pinch of stevia to the banana mixture for a fudge version!
