Cocoa Banana ViceCreme

I always liked chocolate ice cream with bananas and peanuts on top !!  The flavor of this reminds me of that... I actually did put peanuts on mine.   I think next time I'll try adding the peanuts while the ViceCreme is churning in the ice cream maker !!!!  That way the peanuts will already be in the ViceCreme!!

1-1/4 cup almond milk
2 cups soy creamer 
1/2 cup sugar
2 large bananas (mashed REALLY fine - can put in blender to mash)
2 Tbsp Arrowroot Powder  ( I use Bob's Red Mill)
1-1/2 tsp chocolate extract (optional)
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract (use 1 Tbsp if no chocolate extract)

Mix 1/4 cup almond milk with the arrowroot powder and set aside.  Mix the soy creamer, rest of almond milk, cocoa powder, bananas and sugar in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Let boil for about 1 minute - stirring constantly.   Remove from heat.  Add arrowroot mixture, chocolate extract and vanilla extract.  Mix thoroughly. 

Let cool and then make in an ice cream maker.

I actually have 2 ice cream makers; 1 that uses ice and 1 that doesn't.  I really like them both.  

The Hamilton Beach 68330R 4-Quart Automatic Ice-Cream Maker uses ice.  You can make a bigger batch of vicecreme, and I also think the vicecreme turns out "harder" than the other one.  At first I thought it would be a pain using one with the ice, but it really isn't.

The Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker does not use ice.  The vicecreme is softer than the other, but still comes out good.  The one thing I found is the bowl really needs to be kept in the freezer for about a week before using it.  There were times I only left it in the freezer a couple of days, and the vicecreme was REALLY soft.  The capacity is much smaller than the one that uses ice.
