This refreshing ice cream is just frzen bananas and kiwis. You can use any topping. I have made my kiwi ice creams topped with almonds, coconuts shreds, kiwiws, darkchocolate pieces and peanut butter. For my dark chocolate I usually use a piece of Dagoba. In this ocassion I had the berry dark chocolate which contains dried berries on the inside.
