Tahini Chocolate Banana Soft Serve

Tahini Chocolate Banana


  • 2 cups ripe sliced frozen bananas
  • 2 Tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste | or sub other nut/seed butter), plus more for serving
  • 3 Tbsp cacao (or unsweetened cocoa) powder
  • 1-2 Tbsp Circle Back Farm organic maple syrup
  • optional: 1-2 ripe pitted dates
  • optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • optional: Pinch sea salt


  • Add ripe, sliced, frozen bananas to a food processor or a high-speed blender and mix / blend until a creamy “soft serve” is formed, scraping down sides as needed – about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add tahini (or other nut/seed butter), cacao powder, and maple syrup and blend to combine. Then taste and adjust flavors as needed, adding more tahini for nuttiness, cacao for intense chocolate flavor, or maple syrup (or 1-2 pitted dates) for sweetness. At this time, you can also add vanilla extract or a pinch of sea salt for more flavor. Mix as needed to combine.
  • Serve immediately or transfer to serving bowls and put in the freezer to thicken up. Serve as is or top with additional tahini!
  • Best when fresh. Leftovers will keep in the freezer up to 1 week. Let come back to soft serve consistency at room temperature before enjoying.
