Chocolate Ice Cream (Vegan)

My family sure loves chocolate-especially me! While I usually try to use pure cacao powder in many of my chocolate recipes, I found it to be too bitter in this recipe. Instead, I opted to use dairy-free chocolate chips. This ice cream is very creamy. The secret ingredient? Bananas. Not only do they help make the texture perfect, but they are rich in B Vitamins, fiber and potassium. Yep, this dessert is a healthy treat indeed!

Add to Vitamix or Blender:
2 cups coconut milk (not lite)
1 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips
2 bananas
1 cup coconut sugar

Blend on high for several minutes. Place container in the freezer for 30 minutes. Pour ingredients into an ice cream maker and process according to directions (approximately 30 minutes).
