I love ice cream. Have loved it and will always love it. However, given my new lifestyle, dairy is no longer a part of my diet. And let’s face it, coconut milk ice cream at $6.00 a pint is not an affordable alternative.
In my daily trolling of the pages and pages of wonderful things on pinterest, this particular pin caught my eye. It linked to a recipe for Banana Peanut Butter “Ice Cream”. A frozen treat with little to no added sugar and a wonderful blend of flavors. I took a crack at the recipe and you can see my results below. Kudos to the developer of this ingenious snack.
What’s summer time without a naturally sweet frozen treat to beat the heat? (If I could’ve have squeezed in one more rhyme I would’ve 😉 )
You can check out my results below. It tasted amazing …. and that was without the chocolate chips and honey. Next time though, I’ll be sure to add the chips and maybe some agave in place of the honey. This would go fabulously with a side of strawberries, mango, blueberries or other fruit.
Give it a try for yourselves! I’d love to hear how yours turned out!
Banana Peanut Butter “Ice Cream” (from Got Chocolate)
- 1 1/2 bananas, peeled and sliced into coins
- 3 T peanut butter
- 2 tsp honey (or better yet agave!)
- 1 rounded T chocolate chips
Pop the sliced banana pieces in the freezer until they are frozen solid.
Place frozen bananas in a food processor and blend until you have a smooth pulp.
Add peanut butter and honey and mix thoroughly.
Stir in chips by hand.
Remove to a freezer-safe container and freeze until solid
