Ingredients:

2 frozen bananas
3tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Amber Lyn sugar free dark chocolate chunks
Chopped nuts
Silicone ice cube tray

Place the frozen bananas & milk in a blender/food processor and blend until creamy & smooth. Spoon/pour into a silicone ice cubes tray mold (I used a pastry bag to make it less messy!) and place back in the freezer for 2 hours. Once frozen, melt chocolate in a microwave safe dish for 1-1:30 minutes, stirring every 20 or so seconds until melted. Remove ‘nice cream’ from the molds and place on wax paper. Insert a toothpick into the top, dip in chocolate with the help of a spoon and sprinkle with nuts. Work quickly to do the remaining bites and the place them all back in the freezer for 30 minutes to set! I’m not sure exactly how many this would have made because I ate a bunch of the ‘nice cream’ before I even poured it into the molds!
