Chunky Monkey Nice Cream

Chunky monkey nice cream?! Some of you may be familiar with nice cream, some of you may be like “what the hell is nice cream?” well friends, nice cream is ice cream made from frozen Bananas! Yes frozen bananas create a smooth creamy ice cream like substance that is a NO guilt treat that you should enjoy immediately!

When I was a kid Ben & Jerry’s chunky monkey was my FAV ice cream! My dad would bring it home and I would of course eat around the nuts because that banana ice cream is, was, and will always be AMAZING! Unfortunately you can’t eat ice cream everyday, but you can definitely have this nice-cream bowl everyday *inserts evil kermit meme* since  this bowl is just bananas and cacao powder its technically good for you, yup thats my story and I’m sticking to it.

I’m sure you guys will love this nice cream bowl. If you like chunky monkey ice cream or those fudge/banana popsicles that the ice cream man use to sell then this is definitely for you! If you try it out please tag #wildsunflowerchef in your pictures so I can see your super awesome creations!
