  • Peel and slice the bananas and freeze until hard (at least a couple of hours)
  • Once the bananas are frozen, place in a food processor with peppermint essence and natural food coloring.
  • If needed, you can add a little bit of coconut milk to help it blend easier
  • Blend until smooth and a soft serve consistency.
  • Add chocolate chips and stir gently to combine.
  • Serve immediately or you can refreeze.


I like to use natural powder food colors. If you want green color to this recipe, add a sprinkle each of yellow and blue natural food color powders and mix. Add a little bit of each at a time until you get the color you want. Remember: you can always add more, but you can't take it out once it's added!
