Cheap, easy and HEALTHY dairy-free ice cream

I keep seeing this all over Pinterest. Since I'm dairy-free, I finally got around to trying it. Bananas as ice cream? It actually wasn't that bad. The texture was amazing (for an alternative ice cream). Basically it's just cocoa powder and frozen banana blended in a blender. The cocoa powder masks the banana flavor some, but it's still kind of funky. 
A better idea:
Throw some whipped cream, a maraschino cherry, and some sprinkles on top, and you'd have an awesome banana split ice cream!

Some tips: peel and slice the banana before freezing.
Add some almond or soy milk for easier blending.

Add 2 tbsp cocoa powder, your frozen banana, and a splash of milk to your blender. Blended until smooth and enjoy! 
I love that it's cheap, easy, and HEALTHY! And I don't feel bad letting Emma eat all she wants.
