Usually I steer clear of recipes where the goal is to make a food that pretends to be something else (for me, those are usually only recipes for disappointment!).
However, I'm home sick with a really sore throat and ice cream sounds pretty tempting right now, even if it's not "real". I happen to have 2 bananas that are just slightly overripe, so I threw caution to the wind and blended them up with almonds and organic cocoa powder.
I'm eating it right now and I'm floored - this is DELICIOUS! It really does feel like I'm eating soft ice cream, though it's definitely very banana-y.
Easy, cheap, satisfying, surprising.
