    Bianca…. this was exceptionally good! It’s a cherry ripe in a bowl. I will definitely make this again. I used a 70% cocoa dark chocolate. I shared it with a friend who couldn’t believe there was no added sugar. Congratulations on such a great recipe.

    • Great to hear!!!! Thank YOU so much! I really appreciate the feedback and I am glad the recipe was enjoyed. Be sure to let me know how you go with anything else that you try. x

    Thanks for healthy ice cream! Made this twice, one with frozen blueberries in place of cherries, the other with mango in place of cherries. Storing in the freezer for the upcoming warm weather. Also added 4tbsp coconut light cream not 2. Yum yum! Just made the salted caramel and coconut ice cream too for the freezer! !

    • Thank YOU!!! I really appreciate the feedback and I love the subs! Glad you enjoyed the recipe. x

    Hi.
    I love the look of this but don’t eat bananas. (I know it doesn’t taste of bananas but I just can’t stand them).
    Us there anything I can substitute at all?

    • I have only made it this way. We have a vanilla ice cream that is dairy based and a coconut and salted caramel ice cream that is coconut based, you might like one of those? Alternatively try frozen avocado?

    Refreshing taste, so quick and easy. Loved the way that the chocolate hardened on the cold cherry/banana mix. My husband couldn’t guess that banana was one of the ingredients.

    • Thank YOU!!! I really appreciate the feedback and I am glad it was enjoyed.
