Bananas are a great source of healthy carbohydrates, so they will provide you with lots of energy. They are also very high in potassium, which is an essential mineral to build strong muscles and burn fat.

Maca is made from a root that grows in the highlands of Peru and it is extremely rich in minerals, vitamins and protein. Maca will boost your energy, reduce your stress levels and balance your hormones. You can probably guess why this so important for weight loss and energy. When your hormones are optimized, you will have more energy, your appetite will be regulated and you will experience fewer cravings for unhealthy foods.

Cacao Nibs are basically pieces of cacao bean. They have a strong bitter chocolate taste and they combine really well with goji berries and dried mulberries.

Cacao Maca Banana Ice Cream

SERVES: 1-2 people (I could eat the whole thing ☺)

EQUIPMENT: food processor, rubber spatula


4 medium ripe frozen bananas (freeze them without the peel)
1 tablespoon of cacao nibs (or more to taste)
1 tablespoon of Maca powder
¼ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 large pinch of Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt (optional)


  1. Place the frozen bananas in the food processor fitted with an S-blade. Process until finely chopped.
  2. Add cacao nibs, Maca powder, vanilla extract and salt. Process again until all the ingredients are well combined into a thick, luscious ice cream.
  3. Top with extra cacao nibs and goji berries. Or garnish with warm chocolate sauce and slices of fresh banana.


If you are trying to avoid cacao, you can replace the cacao nibs with carob chocolate chips. Carob doesn’t have that traditional bitter chocolaty taste, but it is a great substitute if you get too nervous from eating cacao. Just use this chocolate chip recipe and replace the cacao with carob powder. Then mix in the carob chocolate chips by hand after you’ve made the banana maca ice cream.
