Creamy, rich in chocolate flavour made using bananas and cacao powder for that smooth delicious texture. Cool down on a hot summer day with your new favourite vegan chocolate ice cream.


  •  4 large, ripe bananas
  • 80g melted vegan chocolate
  • 2 tbsp Cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup
  • A pinch of salt
  • 400ml full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Dairy-free chocolate chips


  1. Cut up your bananas into bite-size chunks and place them in a blender alongside the
    melted vegan chocolate, cacao powder, maple syrup, pinch of salt and coconut milk.
    Blend on a high speed for 1-2 minutes or until the mix is completely smooth.
  2. Carefully pour the mix into ice cube trays and place them in the freezer for at least 2
    hours or overnight.
  3. Remove the frozen cubes from the trays and place them back into your blender.
    Blend on a low/medium speed and use your blender’s tamper stick to push down the
    frozen cubes into the blades. If your blender struggles, make sure to give it a break.
    Blend everything for 3-4 minutes or until the frozen cubes are broken down into a
    smooth ice cream. Serve immediately (e.g. as a smoothie bowl!) or transfer to an
    airtight container and keep it in your freezer for at least 2 hrs
