This chocolate frozen treat is a long time family favorite. It is rich and creamy, perfectly chocolaty with only 2 ingredients. We have been enjoying simple "ice cream" recipes for years, but everyone loves a little chocolate now and then and we always come back to this one. I have to tell you we have enjoyed this Simple 2 Ingredient Chocolate Banana "Ice Cream"countless times over the last few years and you are going to love it!!!
I have mentioned how challenging my 5 year old has become at meal time. Munchkin has become picky about everything so, I have been pretty creative with her meals. Over the last few years we have noticed that our normally well behaved child will change her behavior immediately after eating processed sugar and apparently even the natural sugar in a small bowl of fresh fruit could launch her to the moon.
Between Munchkins sensitivity to sugar and us trying to eat healthy... Naturally sweetened treats are king! This "ice cream" is currently Munchkin's favorite treat! She asks for it at every meal. Truth is, its so healthy she could eat it for breakfast. Not that it would happen, but she could eat it for breakfast. LOL
How about you? What is or was your biggest food challenge with your kids?
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO
