As a kid I didn't like chocolate ice cream... But a Wendy's frosty? That was like half chocolate + half vanilla which meant full delicious. Last summer I saw a recipe for a banana-watermelon-chocolate-frosty. Seemed weird. But I tried and dang!!!! It's just like a frosty!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŽ†! I don't know what could be more American. I don't know where I saw the original recipe or I would have tagged it in here. I really looked hard! Stay cool and full of chocolate ice cream that is healthy, plant based, and delicious!

Recipe adopted from: an instagram post somewhere…

Ingredients

  • 1/3 c soymilk, unsweetened
  • 1 medjool date (optional)
  • ยผ ts vanilla
  • 1 c banana chunks, frozen
  • 1 c watermelon chunks, frozen
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Peel and freeze bananas. They must be frozen for at least 24 hours prior.
  2. Slice watermelon into bite size chunks and freeze for at least 24 hours.
  3. Break frozen bananas into smaller pieces.
  4. In a high-powered blender add milk of choice and date (make sure pits and stems are removed). Blend until the dates has broken into a lot of tiny pieces.
  5. Add frozen bananas and watermelon.
  6. Blend on low or medium low.
  7. You will need to frequently stop the machine and use a spatula to scrape down the sides and stir the contents (it will be useful if your machine came with a tamper like a vitamix for easy mixing while the machine is running). Add more milk as needed (1 tablespoon at a time).
  8. Add cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt and continue blending.
  9. The longer you blend the bananas the faster they will melt. You want it thick like soft serve ice cream as opposed to a milk shake consistency (although that would also be good). Move quickly.
  10. When frosty is smooth scrape out blender contents into a chilled bowl or two.
  11. Eat frosty immediately or place in the freezer for up to 20 minutes to chill a bit more.
  12. You could top it off with cocoa nibs, peanuts, or peanut butter for an extra crunch.
