Chocolate Banana Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips and Only Three Ingredients

We just got our first 90 degree temp for July yesterday.  Now I really want ice cream!  You know the ditty,  I scream, You scream, We all scream for ice cream.  Not any ice cream mind you, but for the the amazing Chocolate Banana Ice Cream with only a few ingredients and no ice cream maker required, that is going around the blogosphere.

This amazing version of the no maker ice cream is only 6 bananas sliced, and frozen, cocoa, and I added the chocolate chips to amp up the chocolate flavor and texture.  This yummy dessert is naturally sweet , healthy, and fat free if you don't add the chocolate chips,  freezer ready in five minutes.  There are no preservatives and you can spell all of the ingredients used.  I was just blown away by the rich, creamy, chocolate flavor  of this confection.  I had already made the Strawberry Banana Ice Cream, and I couldn't wait to try the chocolate version.  Wow! I was not disappointed in the least, and you won't be disappointed either.  If you didn't know differently,  you would think that the ice cream was magic. Enjoy!

Chocolate Banana Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips  Adapted from the Slow Roasted Italian

6 ripe bananas (3 fresh sliced and 3 sliced and frozen) 
3 tablespoons cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
1/2 cup mini or regular size chocolate chips.

Place bananas in a blender or food processor. Blend until mixture starts to get creamy, scraping down sides as necessary, which may take several minutes.  Add cocoa powder and regular chocolate chips and pulse until completely combined. (If using mini chips, stir in to combine)

Transfer mixture to a freezer container and place in freezer for 3-4 hours, or longer if you like your ice cream on the hard side.

Scoop and serve or scoop and place scoops into a container for later use.  If you decide to leave it in the freezer, just allow it to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or so, to soften before serving.

I linked up my recipe to Brandie's The Weekend Potluck #128
