When I got home tonight, I was TIRED. And LAZY. But I wanted DESSERT. Even regular old lower-case dessert would do.

Two whole minutes later, I had whipped up some chocolate-banana ice cream. Well, it’s not really ice cream, but it’s a very tasty, dead simple, and stupidly healthy sweet frozen dessert. It’s not DESSERT, by any means, but I’ll take it.

Frozen fruit successfully masquerading as dessert.

Chocolate-banana “ice cream”
Adapted from The Kitchn (which is a great source for genius simple ideas like this—for example, how to make foamed milk without a frother or a machine, or how to make brown sugar)

1 banana, peeled, cut into small pieces and frozen [I always have frozen bananas in my freezer; if you don’t, you can a freeze a fresh banana for an hour or so]
1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste
2 teaspoons cocoa powder, or to taste

Combine all ingredients in food processor. Blend, scraping down occasionally and mashing up chunks as needed—if it’s too chunky, add a splash of milk—until creamy.

Serves 1.
