Vitamix Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

It has been hot here in Ohio and it is only the beginning of May. One thing that is great during hot weather is ice cream. When I worked at Vitamix, I remembered other employees raving about how easy it was to make ice cream with frozen bananas in a Vitamix blender. I did some additional research and combined the Vitamix recipe with a few other items that I thought would be great with bananas and would work well with my Vitamix Certified Reconditioned Standard Programs machine (Pro 500 model). If you didn’t know, I am a huge peanut butter fan. I have a simple rule; anything with peanut butter tastes better. Below are the steps to make healthy and cool treat. This is something that can be made, then frozen. I recently made a batch that lasted a few days. This tastes great with Hershey chocolate syrup, peanuts, and whip cream.

Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1 (low if your machine doesn’t have a Variable 1)
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10 or High.
  4. Use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.
  5. In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form. You may start to notice a slight smell from the motor, but don’t worry.
  6. Stop the machine and scoop the frozen treat from the container.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!
This is a simple and healthy recipe that can be made in less than 10 minutes. It literally took me longer to clean up than it did to make. I am looking forward to trying this recipe with other ingredients. The best part of this recipe is that if you mess up or end up making a batch that isn’t good, it is only a few bananas and 5 minutes of time. Let us know what you think of this recipe.
