Wood cutting board with a bowl of vegan Chocolate Tahini Banana Soft Serve

I’m sure by now you’ve tried the 1-ingredient magic that is banana “soft serve” ice cream?

If not, you must. It’s just frozen, ripe bananas whirled into creamy soft serve. In other words, it’s what a healthy foodie’s dessert dreams are made of.

Flavor options are endless!

It’s no secret that I have a thing for tahini and chocolate. But, when I combined the two in my Tahini Stuffed Dates (aka Tahini Bombs), I lost my mind over the flavor combination. Think savory, sweet, chocolaty, and nutty. It’s a real-life flavor love affair.

Not only is this recipe delicious, it’s also SO easy to make, requiring just 5-10 minutes, 1 bowl, and 4 ingredients to make!

I think you’re going to LOVE this soft serve. It’s:

Perfectly sweet
Insanely delicious
& SO easy to make

Enjoy this recipe as a healthier dessert or snack! Add some cacao nibs or magic shell for a crunchy topping. If you aren’t into tahini, try another nut/seed butter like almond butter or sunbutter! And, for a drinkable version, add non-dairy milk to make a shake like this Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Shake!
