Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs Almond Butter frozen* see note
  • 2 Bananas frozen
  • 2 Tbs Raw Cacao or unsweetened baking cocoa powder
  • Pinch of Ground Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • Pinch of Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract I use Rodelle
  • 1-2 Tbs Melted Dark Chocolate ** see note for vegan chocoalte

Toppings (optional):

Instructions

  • Freeze the almond butter (in ice cube tray) and bananas at least 1 hour prior to processing. If using a blender, there's no need to freeze the almond butter as it will not blend well. 
  • In a food processor or blender, combine the almond butter, bananas, cacao, cinnamon, pepper, salt and vanilla. Process for 2-3 minutes stopping to scrape the bowl down several times. Continue processing until a soft-serve texture is formed. With the processor running, drizzle in the melted chocolate - it will freeze on contact to make tiny chocolate flecks. (The food processor may need short breaks in between to prevent over heating). 
  • Pour into 2 small serving bowls. Top with optional toppings and enjoy right away.
