Easy 4-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate “Chunky Monkey” Soft Serve: Chocolate Banana Soft Serve Mixed with Walnuts and Chocolate Chips

I LOVE Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey Ice Cream. And just all ice cream in general. I could eat it every day, multiple times a day. Even during the freezing winter months haha! That’s what inspired me to create this – a vegan version that only takes 4 ingredients to make, isn’t too sugary, and packs in great and good-for-you ingredients! Simply blend frozen banana with some chocolate soy milk, the daily recommended serving of walnuts (1/4 cup), and some dark chocolate chips. SO good and refreshing – hits the spot every time! You also get a lot of great vitamins and nutrients from the banana and walnuts! Great as a dessert or sweet treat during the day. 🙂
