Ice Cream Base
Raw Chocolate
  1. In a blender combine bananas, almond milk, vanilla extract, and sweetener of choice mixing until very smooth. Transfer to shallow container and place in freezer for 20-30 minutes until chilled and icy around the edges.
  2. Meanwhile, make the chocolate by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl. Transfer to a shallow container and freeze. Once frozen remove chocolate and cut into small chunks.

  3. Add the chilled ice cream base into your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer's instructions. Once done place ice cream in a bowl and stir in walnuts and chocolate chunks by hand. Transfer to an airtight container and return to freezer. Allow ice cream 4-5 hours to harden completely.

  4. Remove from freezer and let thaw ten minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

If your bananas are ripe enough, you probably won't need to add sweetener. Adjust according to taste.
