Chocolate and Almond Butter Soft Serve

These last few weeks have been a really strange time of transition for me.  Between moving, working long hours, battling a nasty cold, and lots of changes on the personal front, things feel really unbalanced right now.

In times of unbalance I usually turn to kale: Kale and Pear Smoothies, Broccoli and Kale Soup, or some classic Kale Chips. However, today I am turning to chocolate.

And specifically, this incredibly sweet (and yet somehow healthy) chocolate and almond butter soft serve.  With Halloween (aka candy season) right around the corner, this is the perfect treat for your sweet tooth that  doesn’t involve food coloring, additives, or refined sugar.  This soft serve is incredibly simple to make and only involves three ingredients!  So, what are you waiting for?

Chocolate & Almond Butter Soft Serve
This soft serve relies on frozen bananas for its creamy texture and sweetness.  I didn’t add any extra sweeteners to my batch, but you can always add a natural sweetener like maple syrup if desired. After you gather your supplies, the prep is simple: process and serve!  How easy is that?
