Good lord people, it’s 2 tablespoons of vegan chips per 4 servings. If you don’t want then don’t use them. Many aren’t that bad for you. Use cocoa nibs. No need to whine

I use 1-2 tablespoons baking cocoa powder because I don’t want chocolate chips hanging around. Too tempting. Recipe looks yummy.

I don’t understand how chocolate chips can be Forks & Knives friendly.

Try using more cherries in place of the banana. They get really creamy like bananas, especially in a good blender.

Can you do tofu? I use that for my cacao pudding base. Would probably work here with extra cherries.

I would think even vegan chocolate chips would be too high in saturated fat.

Did you get to see the reply about freezing sliced zucchini in place of banana? Sounds crazy enough that I wanna try it…and I happen to have some to freeze!

This sounds weird but trust me…freeze a sliced zucchini (with peel on or off) and use it in place of banana. You can’t taste it at ALL!

Sounds like a good recipe when cherries are ripe.

Yes and I worked hard this summer to pit and freeze a bunch of cherries n and now we’re enjoying them in smoothies and nice cream. I was very careful to make sure not one pit was left in as I don’t want to mess up my Ninja blender! Next summer I hope to freeze even more when they’re at their cheapest. I’ve also bought frozen cherries at Publix (pricey).
