Mocha Banana ‘Ice Cream’

Guess what? This cold treat contains no dairy! Frozen bananas lend themselves perfectly to an ice cream - like texture. And at under two hundred clean calories, you won't have to save it for cheat days, either.


Ready in 5 minutes • Makes 2 servings


  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 tsp instant coffee or espresso
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 oz dark chocolate (approx. 3 squares), finely chopped


  1. Remove bananas from freezer and let sit on the counter for 5 minutes.
  2. Peel bananas and break or cut into chunks, then place into a food processor. Pulse about 20 times until bananas are in small pieces, then blend until smooth. If necessary, stop the machine and scrape from the sides.
  3. Add the coffee, cinnamon and chocolate to the food processor, and blend again to fully incorporate. Serve.
