First, you need to freeze two overripe bananas.  Just put peeled bananas in a ziploc bag and freeze until completely frozen.  Whenever you have overripe bananas on hand, stash them in a freezer so you can use them to make this healthy ice cream whenever you get a craving!

To make this healthy chocolate banana ice cream, put 2 frozen bananas and 1 tbsp cocoa powder in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.  It will turn into chocolate ice cream!  If you are a dark chocolate lover, you can try puting an extra tablespoon of cocoa powder :)

Scoop out the ice cream from the blender using an ice cream scoop, put in a bowl and serve immediately.  Yummy yummy yum!
