Simple recipes are the best. When I feed my children, I love recipes with few ingredients that don’t require much prep. Well, did you know you can blend smooth frozen bananas and it creates a delicious frozen ice cream-like dessert? Check out my recipe below for these two ingredient frozen banana bites.
Two Ingredient Frozen Banana Bites
This refreshing ice cream alternative is super healthy, and super simple.
- overripe bananas: 6
- mini chocolate chips: for topping
Step 1: Peel and slice the bananas. Lay the slices out on a foil-lined baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and pop in the freezer for about an hour.
Step 2: Take the bananas from the freezer and toss the bananas into the bowl of a food processor.
Step 3: Blend the frozen bananas until smooth. The frozen blend might require some coaxing with a hard plastic scraper. It gets a little clumpy before it gets smooth. Once it's smooth, stir in ½ cup of the mini chocolate chips.
Step 4: Use a large cookie scoop to portion out the banana/chocolate chip mix onto the foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the scoops with chocolate chips. Place in the freezer for an hour to harden.
Step 5: Eat! We love ours plain or topped with cut up strawberries.
Uneaten scoops should be transferred in a freezer-safe container with a lid, layered with wax paper.
Optional: Press a wooden stick into the scoops before freezing them to make them easier to eat for little hands and mouths.
