healthy Indian chocolate ice cream | chocolate banana ice cream | 3 ingredient chocolate ice cream | no sugar chocolate ice cream | ice cream made in Vitamix is a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional chocolate ice cream. Learn how to make chocolate banana ice cream.

To make healthy Indian chocolate ice cream, freeze 4 bananas overnight. Break bananas into pieces. In a vitamix or high quality blender, put the frozen bananas. We made our ice cream with vitamix. Add unsweetened cocoa powder. Add unsweetened almond milk. Pulse with tamper (black rod) downwards and keep doing it till it is smooth. Initially it will be very difficult to pulse. Black rod is called tamper and is used to push down the ice cream to the upper level of the blades keeping some safe distance. We can process thick dense food or ice cream which would not be possible in a regular mixer. Pour thick dense ice cream into a plastic container. Freeze the healthy Indian chocolate ice cream. Serve the chocolate banana ice cream chilled.

This is a very simple recipe and the base consists of accessible and nutrient dense ingredients. The 3 ingredient chocolate ice cream has a wonderful and smooth consistency. The flavour of the banana goes great with the chocolate and overall, it tastes very refreshing as compared to regular ice cream, which can become overwhelmingly sweet.

We use unsweetened cocoa powder which gives the dark chocolate flavour to the no sugar chocolate ice cream. This is a better option to opt for as compared to regular cocoa powder which is high in sugar. Lastly, we use unsweetened almond milk in this recipe. This lends protein and some amount of fibre, which helps to satiate you in a healthy way.

With only 104 calories per serving, this ice cream made in Vitamix is a healthy choice for all health conscious people including those aiming weight loss and have existing heart problems. Bananas are a natural source of potassium which helps to control blood pressure and maintain cardiac health. All in one, this ice cream is a wise indulgence occasionally.

Tips for healthy Indian chocolate ice cream. 1. The banana is the main ingredient for this ice cream and it binds the mixture together. It is advisable to use ripe bananas as they bring the ice cream more natural sweetness. Ripe bananas often have peels with black spots, so you can choose accordingly. 2. If you wish, you can make almond milk at home. 3. You can also substitute almond milk with other options like cow’s milk, soy milk, etc. 4. This chocolate banana ice cream is by itself reasonably sweet as the banana provides natural sweetness. However, if you prefer it to be sweeter, you can add your choice of sweetener to the ice cream before freezing.
