  1. Peel and cut the bananas into 1-inch rounds. Place the bananas in a freezer bag and freeze them for at least 3 hours.
  2. Right before you’re ready to make the ice cream, whisk together the cocoa powder, coconut milk, and vanilla in a small bowl.
  3. If your banana slices have been in the freezer for longer than a day, it’s best to let them thaw in the food processor bowl for about 15 minutes. Place the frozen bananas, chocolate mix, and salt in a food processor and blend well, stopping to scrape down the sides often to get a smooth, even consistency. Taste and add the optional sugar, if you’d like it sweeter. Transfer into bowl, then mix in marshmallows, peanuts, and chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop the ice cream into small bowls and serve immediately or cover in plastic wrap and freeze. If you’re saving the ice cream for a later time, remove the bowls from the freezer about 5 minutes to slightly thaw before serving your rocky road ice cream.


Makes 3 cups; 1/2 cup per serving
