Raw Chocolate Ice Cream

Today’s recipe is actually what you’d call dessert by its name, but you might find me eating this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner too. You’d eat bananas at any time of the day, right? Nuts aren’t a dessert food. Coconut water goes in all of my smoothies. And cacao? Well, okay. Maybe that’s the dessert part. Either way, this stuff is delicious! Enjoy any time. You have my permission.

Creamy, rich, chocolate ice cream made from bananas, nuts, and coconut water. #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #icecream #chocolate
