Do you ever crave something sweet, but it’s just not worth the calories? Or, maybe it is, but then you feel kind of guilty because you ‘messed up’ your diet? Hold on to your hats friends, because today, I’m bringing you a guilt free ice cream! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream is DIVINE!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream
Made with frozen bananas, and a few all natural ingredients, your sweet tooth will be satisfied! Have you seen these ‘banana ice cream’ recipes? I was pretty curious whether or not it really tasted like ice cream.
Actually, a few years ago, I tried it. Just frozen bananas in the food processor. I thought it would be fun to tell my kids they were having ice cream for breakfast. I just wanted to be a fun mom for once (anyone else ever feel that way?). So, we made it, and it was good. The kids thought they were eating ice cream, and while I thought it was good, probably banana flavored ice cream wouldn’t be my first choice.
Fast forward, and I’m seeing these recipes all over the internet. So I think, hmmm, I know it’s good but how can I ramp it up a bit, make it more like actual ice cream but still without all the sugar and unhealthy ingredients.
So, here you have it. Chocolate peanut butter banana ice cream. Friends, I can’t even explain how much we loved this. So you have to try it! I have a thing for chocolate. And peanut butter actually. So this was the perfect flavor for me. But I have to say it totally inspired me to try some other flavors too. Strawberry, cherry, mango, peach…the possibilities are endless.
What you need~
- Frozen bananas
- Almond milk
- Cocoa powder
- Peanut butter
What to do~
- Place the bananas, almond milk, cocoa powder, peanut butter and honey into a food processor or High powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blend Tec.
- Blend until smooth
- For soft serve, serve immediately, for more of a hard ice cream texture, freeze.
See how easy that is?
- The bananas may only need a couple hours to freeze, but I left mine in overnight
- Ripe bananas are best, but they don’t have to be brown.
- When you first mix the ice cream, it will be more of a soft serve consistency. If you like a firmer ice cream, then place it in the freezer for a few hours after blending.
- I’m in love with my Vitamix, I have one just like this. A food processor works great too if you don’t have a Vitamix or Blend Tec. Definitely use a food processor over a regular blender.
