Use the Vitamix tamper stick to whip up all the bananas until fully combined and creamy. You are looking for an extra-thick smoothie or soft-serve consistency. Sprinkle in chocolate chips and fold in with a spatula. Serve immediately. For a firmer texture, double the batch and pour into an 8-inch loaf tin, cover, and freeze until ready to serve!
