Vegan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Yield: 6 servings


1 ripe avocado
4 ripe bananas, peeled, chopped into pieces, frozen
¼ cup cacao powder
Pinch sea salt
1 tsp. maple syrup
3 TB. cacao nibs


In a food processor fitted with the “S” blade or high-speed blender, place avocado and frozen banana pieces and blend until no lumps remain. This could take a while and the mixture might need some help by scraping down the sides. If the mixture is too thick let it sit for a few minutes to soften. This helps to get it moving in the food processor. Scrape down this sides and add the cacao, sea salt, and maple syrup. Process until smooth and combined thoroughly. Scrape the mixture into a freezer-safe bowl and stir in the cacao nibs. Serve immediately or cover and freeze until serving. If serving from the freezer let it sit for a moment or two to soften a bit.
