  • 2-3 frozen bananas I used 2 1/2
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper we used 1/4 but you may want to start with 1/8 and check the hotness
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips


  • Chop frozen bananas, then add to food processor. Pulse 5-6 times, then let run for 10 seconds or until bananas are smooth and creamy.
  • Add in cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, cayenne, and maple syrup and blend until mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Add in dark chocolate chunks and pulse another 5-7 times, or until chocolate chunks are mixed in, but still in pieces for a crunch.
  • Add mixture to freezer safe contain and put in freezer for at least 30-45 minutes. The mixture is like a soft serve ice cream after about 20 minutes, but firms up like hard scoop ice cream after about 45 minutes to an hour. Enjoy!


I didn't measure out the servings, but I think you could easily get 4 {fairly generous} 1/2 cup servings out of this recipe. The nutrition info is based on four servings with these ingredients.
