This is probably my favorite “healthy” snack of all time! I am not sure where I learned the trick to making the banana soft serve, but it is incredibly easy. You can either make the original banana soft serve (just the bananas) or make my modified version with peanut butter and chocolate shell.
First you will need these ingredients… this makes about 4 generous servings.
3 or 4 frozen bananas
1 Tbls. Cocoa powder
1 Tbls. Peanut butter (any will do)
2 Tbls. Coconut oil divided (I used unrefined which gives a “coconutty” flavor- if you don’t like coconut flavor use the refined)
1 packet of Truvia
((((2 Tbls. of milk or water if needed))))
Combine peanut butter and 1 Tbls. coconut oil in small bowl
Combine Cocoa Powder, Truvia and 1 Tbls. of Coconut oil in another small bowl… set both aside.
Place bananas in food processor… Please make note that your food processor will most likely “jump” when you start it up… give it a few seconds and it will stop. Also do not try this recipe in the blender because the results will not be the same.
You will see your bananas looking like the picture above… you are not through yet! Keep going… the magic will start soon… to help the process along I sometimes add a little milk or water to get it going.
Ahh there it is! If it doesn’t look like this you are not done… but it will get there! It should be light and creamy… and oh so yummy!
Scoop it into a bowl and get ready for some more amazing tricks…
Drizzle the peanut butter and chocolate mixtures that you made onto the banana soft serve. Watch as they harden into a shell of peanut butter chocolaty goodness!!!!
Top it off with a cherry and enjoy!
