Hello. My name is Mikaela and I am a Disney addict.
While I like to pretend that I have become somewhat adept at adulting and am much more adultier than the young adults I see hooligan-ing around . . . my adult-ness kinda takes a hit when I admit that we have been to a themed amusement park three–no, wait–four times in the last three years. There was Disney Land. Then Disney World. And then Universal Studios, because duh: Harry Potter Land. Oh, and then there was Disney Land again.
I know. We are children.
And I LOVE it. I cannot quite put my finger on what it is about these places that gives me the happy joy joy the moment I step foot into the park. Guess I’m just going to have to go with… am I really going to give in… do I really just say… it’s magical. Happiest place on earth. All the things that are supposed to make us adults sigh and throw up a little make me the happiest clam on the beach. The brightest candle on the birthday cake. The . . .
okay. i stop now.
But seriously, guys. The 40 billion different mickey ears I get to wear every day? The fireworks? Stitch and Chip ‘n Dale, and Pluto hugs? The happy music and ice cream and churros and . . . CHOCOLATE COVERED BANANAS. Hells to the ye- whoops. back up. we are in disney’s magic bubble and in disney’s magic bubble, there is no swearing. There is no sadness. There is no grumpiness or badness or adulty-ness. BUT THERE ARE CHOCOLATE COVERED BANANAS ON A STICK. I dare you to try and feel like an adult when you’re balancing one of those babies in your fist and trying to walk and talk and eat it at the same time.
But who cares??? Because you’re in Disney. And Disney. is. magical.
Chocolate Covered Banana Nice Cream
So every nice cream is banana nice cream, because that is what nice cream is! And me being, well, me, I knew that I wanted chocolate banana nice cream. I was thinking an awesome brownie batter flavor to offer a healthy alternative to my obsession with brownie batter cookie dough. -_- But then I taste-tested this recipe and . . . there I was. Back in Disney with my chocolate covered banana.
This chocolate covered banana nice cream is:
- refined sugar-free
- extra chocolatey
- velvety in texture
- MAGICAL! (ha – you knew I was going to go there, didn’t you?)
When I first looked up how to make banana nice cream, I was surprised at how easy the recipe is. Thinking to make my food blogger mark, I kept thinking of all these additions I could make. (#foodbloggerprobs) Then I was like “wait a minute. what am i doing?” The beauty of banana nice cream is that it is so simple. So I kept it simple. I amped up the cocoa for this recipe, because–um–chocolate. Now, I HIGHLY recommend using finely chopped chocolate or mini chocolate chips. When I photographed this recipe, all I had were normal-sized dark chocolate chips. Which are awesome, but when they’re frozen, they are kind of hard to bite down on. So definitely go with the chopped chocolate or mini chips for your chocolate covered banana nice cream.
