I love chocolate. 

Can relate? Well, welcome to the club of the ever-cursed "hate it and love it but can't stop it".

Also, if you have taken a closer look at my blog, you will not that I love ice cream. It's no secret that i even ate nicecream for breakfast every day for a while. 

You can imagine that combining chocolate and ice cream into one gorgeous breakfast meal was perfection for me, all vegan of course :)

This is not exactly "healthy", and i do try to stay away from chocolate or make my own chocolate creations using dates and cocoa powder (check out my Chocolate Pudding or my Dark Chocolate Brownies or my Double Chocolate Ice Cream), but sometimes i just need a piece of real chocolate to melt on my tongue and make my brain produce the happiness hormone serotonin.

The chocolate i'm using for this recipe is from a brand i recently discovered, called iChoc White Vanilla, which sell vegan organic chocolates in at least four flavours which i've tried all of them.


3 large ripe bananas, peeled, chopped and frozen
around 1/2 bar (50g) vegan white chocolate, chopped
content of 1 bag of vanilla green tea OR 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
dash of soy milk or almond milk (optional)

chocolate chunks and buckwheat groats to garnish

- a high-speed blender or food processor (NO NEED FOR AN ICE CREAM MAKER!)


Way too simple to resist: Throw your frozen banana pieces into a high-speed blender or food processor (i always use the latter), and blend. Add a dash of water or plant milk to get the blender running. Then add the chocolate pieces and blend some more. Lastly, add the content of one bag of vanilla green tea - or simply vanilla extract. Blend once more, spoon into a bowl and dig in!
