Tahini Chocolate Banana Soft Serve

You’ve probably tried banana “soft-serve” ice cream, which is made with just one ingredient.

You must if you don’t. This is just ripe, frozen bananas that are whirled up into a creamy, soft serve. It’s the stuff of healthy foodies’ dreams.

There are endless flavor options! For this recipe, however, I chose a recent favorite, Chocolate Tahini.

No secret: I love tahini as well as dark chocolate. When I combined them in my Tahini Stuffed Dates (aka Tahini Bombs), I was blown away by the combination of flavors. Think of savory, chocolatey, nutty, and sweet. This is a true love affair of flavors.

This recipe is not only delicious but also SO simple to make. It requires just 5-10 minutes, one bowl, and four ingredients!



  • Two cups of frozen bananas, ripe and sliced
  • Use 2 Tbsp Tahini (sesame seed butter // or substitute other nut/seed Butter // and more for serving).
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder (or unsweetened chocolate)
  • Use 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup or substitute dates (or other sweeteners (To taste, add 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup (or sub dates or other sweeteners such as stevia).
  • 1-2 ripe pitted dates (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 pinch sea salt (optional)

For Toppling optional

  • Magic Shell * 1-2 Tbsp


  • Blend or mix frozen, ripe bananas in a high-speed food processor until they form a “soft serve.” Scrape down the sides as necessary.
  • Blend tahini, cacao powder, and maple syrup. Taste and adjust the flavors, adding more maple syrup or pitted dates for sweetness, cacao powder for intense chocolate flavor, and tahini to add nuttiness. You can add vanilla or sea salt to the mixture at this point for additional flavor. Mix to combine.
  • Serve immediately, or put the frozen mixture in a serving bowl to thicken. Serve with extra tahini or magic shell, or serve as is.
  • Fresh is best. The leftovers can be frozen for up to a week. Soft serve consistency is best enjoyed at room temperature.
