How to Make Chunky Monkey Ice Cream

This banana chocolate chip ice cream is a breeze to make. Since it’s no churn, no fancy ice cream maker is necessary!

First, in a food processor, add the bananas and one-half cup of almond milk. Pulse until bananas start to break up.

Turn the processor on high; slowly add the remaining half-cup of almond milk until the mixture is smooth. If you still have chunks of bananas, add a little more almond milk.

Turn off the processor; add chocolate chips and walnuts. Pulse until combined.

Pour into bread pan and swirl fudge on top.

For soft nice cream, serve immediately or for a firmer nice cream, cover and freeze for 1-2 hours.

To make the fudge, you’ll whisk the ingredients together in a medium sauce pan and simmer over medium-low heat for five minutes, whisking occasionally.

      This sounds so good. I love that you don’t use condensed milk and use bananas and almond milk for sweetness. Pinned and I’ll be including this in this week’s MM roundup.
