Cherry Chocolate Soft Serve Ice Cream [Vegan]

- 1 cup of fresh cherries, pitted and halved + a few for topping
- 2 tablespoons cacao nibs or dark chocolate chunks
- Put cherries and frozen bananas into a high-speed blender or a food processor (cherries must be at the bottom as they’re easier to blend). Blend until smooth.
