Adam’s Chocolate Ice Cream
My grandson’s name is Adam, he is 7 years old and he is a handful. To keep him busy & to get him away from the TV, I asked him to help me in the kitchen to bake a cake together. He suggested ice cream instead, so I developed this recipe with him in mind, I hope you enjoy it as much as Adam & I did. I encourage you to have your kids join you in the kitchen, but please make sure it’s safe for them to help you.
Since Adam loves ice cream, and most kids do love sweets, his dad pays attention to everything Adam puts in his mouth. I developed this healthy homemade chocolate ice cream that is good for Adam & all of us. The ingredients in this recipe are flavors I like, however, you can use fresh fruits such as strawberries, banana. Coconut manna & and raw honey, some cream or almond milk, are added in when making ice cream, you can play with ingredients according to your taste & use other flavors according to your liking.
You don’t need an ice cream maker for this, all that is needed is a food processor. There is, however a little preparation, you need to freeze the fruits prior to making the ice cream.
Banana is the base for this ice cream and the coconut manna. There is no need for sugar because the bananas are sweet and we will be adding a little bit of raw honey.
Also, the measurement is for three to four servings, but you can double the recipe for as much or as little of any ingredient you like.
Chocolate Ice Cream
3 – 4 bananas, frozen
1/4 cup of coconut manna
3 tbs of raw honey
1/4 cup raw cocoa powder
Cool whip optional for topping
In a food processor, add in the diced up frozen banana and pulse until almost smooth, add in the coconut manna and mix again. You want an ice cream like consistency, add in the cocoa powder and the honey. Pulse until you have the mixture just like ice cream. Freeze the ice cream and then serve whenever you want. Serve the ice cream in a glass or an ice cream cone.
This is a great recipe and it’s another way for kids to eat fresh fruits that sweetened with healthy ingredients such as raw honey & coconut manna. This ice cream recipe is healthy and a great dessert for kids and for the entire family.
