3-Ingredient Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

Your Monday meal prep routine doesn’t just involve making your breakfasts, lunches and dinners ahead of time. Desserts need to be part of the equation, too! That’s right, there’s no reason you should forego making after-dinner treats, especially one that’s made with nutrition-boosting ingredients.

Jorge Cruise, celebrity fitness trainer recently shared his favorite recipes on Daily Burn 365 from his new book, Tiny and Full: Eat More, Weigh Less, and Turn Off Hunger All Day. One of them is this delicious three-ingredient chocolate ice cream that’s just 143 calories per serving. Pure magic? Well, sort of. You can thank the frozen banana for the natural sweetness and creaminess, while raw cocoa powder infuses chocolaty goodness without adding sugar. And if you’re vegan or dairy-free, you’re in luck because this recipe calls for almond milk. (Or, you can opt for any nut milk of your choice.) Prepare a bigger batch of this chocolate ice cream recipe by doubling the ingredients. Freeze the mixture into paleta molds, or use a loaf pan with parchment paper to store it.
