Chocolate Banana Avocado Ice Cream is made with just 5 ingredients! This healthy dessert is dairy free, vegan and so chocolaty!
If you love banana ice cream aka "nice cream," you have to give this recipe a try! BUT... This isn't just boring old blended frozen bananas. Even though I shouldn't talk badly about frozen bananas. 😂
I added avocado to make it extra creamy and decadent. Plus, the cacao powder mixed with pure maple syrup creates a sweet chocolaty flavor.
This recipe is absolutely perfect in the warmer months when you want something refreshing and healthy, yet still sweet for dessert!
Ingredients in this recipe

Freeze bananas when they are super ripe for sweeter ice cream.
After trying this recipe with a high speed blender and a high speed food processor, I recommend using a high speed blender. Everything blends evenly and much quicker!
If you can't get your hands on a ripe avocado, grab frozen avocado chunks from the freezer section of your grocery store.
Add more almond milk by the tablespoon if your blender isn’t strong enough to process the ingredients.
Everyone prefers a different amount of sweetness. Use more or less maple syrup depending on what you like. Give the ice cream a little taste as you make it. You can adjust from there.
Let the ice cream freeze for 3 hours+. Then, allow it to soften for about 15 minutes at room temperature before serving.
