What you need:
3 large bananas, cut into 1-inch pieces and frozen overnight
2 tablespoons almond milk
Seeds from 1 split vanilla bean
1 tablespoon cacao powder
3 tablespoons cacao nibs
1/2 teaspoon mint extract
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint, plus more for garnish
What you do:
1. In a food processor, add bananas, almond milk, vanilla seeds, and cacao powder. Process for 1 to 2 minutes to break up banana. Scrape down sides and process until bananas turn into a soft-serve consistency, repeating as needed, about 3 minutes.
