  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 15 g
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional) 50 g, or vegan substitute


  • In a heavy duty blender or food processor, blend frozen bananas until smooth and creamy. If necessary, allow bananas to thaw for 5 minutes before blending.
  • Add coffee and cocoa powder and blend until evenly mixed.

*Remove peel and roughly chop bananas prior to freezing. Freeze in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer-safe container until you need them for this recipe.
