Banana Cherry Garcia Soft Serve

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen bananas, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups cherries, pitted and frozen (divided)
  • splash of unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk
  • scant 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks (70% +), cacao nibs or raw chocolate chips

Place banana chunks, 1 cup cherries and splash of milk into blender/food processor and blend until just combined. You may need to scrap down the sides a few times or add another splash of milk to help the mixture move. Add in chocolate and remaining 1/2 cup cherries, pulse until just combined. Serve immediately topped with shaved dark chocolate, cacao nibs or raw chocolate chips.

You can also freeze and serve this for later. Place ice cream into a sealed container and freeze for at least six hours. Let set at room temp for a few minutes, scoop and serve.

Serves 2 generously.

Notes:

It helps to freeze your serving dish beforehand if possible. Will keep your soft serve chilled a bit longer.

If you don’t want any chocolate chunks try adding 1 heaping teaspoon of raw or dark cocoa powder instead. Adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract never hurts either. It adds another flavor level.

Enjoy!
