I can't write about the Fourth of July without getting political, so I'm not going to! Instead, here's a sweet, good-for-you treat to share at all your celebration-worthy gatherings this summer (or you know, just eat it all yourself like I did ;)
Peanut Butter-Chocolate "Nice" Cream with Fresh Fruit
3 bananas, frozen (preferably already sliced)
2 tbsp natural peanut butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1.5 tbsp maple syrup (OK, I eyeballed this)
Splash unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Berry selection of choice
1. Throw everything but the berries into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. It should have the consistency of soft serve ice cream. You might need to stop and scrape the sides of the blender every so often depending on how much liquid you use.
2. Next, pour mixture into a freezer safe container and freeze for at least an hour, depending on how firm/soft you prefer.
3. Scoop nice cream into bowl, add berries of choice and enjoy!
