Vegan spiced choc banana bliss balls

Two ingredient chocolate ice cream

Chocolate Icecream

Every girl knows that lonely Saturday nights in front of the television require ice-creamy goodness. One such night had me scraping the cupboard desperate for something to kill my sweet tooth (we’ve all been there). Cue my best invention ever. This recipe is so simple to make and especially great for using up very ripe bananas – no ice cream machine necessary.
