So I finally tried out this whole banana “ice cream” fad and I am obsessed!! I couldn’t believe that it actually works AND tastes wonderful!
It is so simple and easy you MUST try this ASAP. (And it’s a great way to get rid of bananas that are starting to go bad- instead of always making banana bread!)
What you’ll need (for one serving):
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 TBSP peanut butter
- And whatever toppings you desire! (Chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, coconut, walnuts, cookie crumbs, sprinkles, whipped cream, etc..)
First step: Peel and slice bananas and place in the freezer for 2 or more hours. (**THIS STEP IS A MUST- it will make it a lot easier when it is time to blend)
Next: Place sliced bananas in a food processor.
Then start mixing. At first it will look like this:
After about 30-45 seconds stop and scrape down sides and then continue to blend until smooth consistency appears. This will take about 2 or more minutes.
Next add 1 Tablespoon peanut butter (or more!):
Scoop into a bowl and top with toppings of your choice. (I have been using chocolate syrup!)
The texture and flavor reminds of a Frosty. It is creamy without any milk! This is a great recipe for those who are lactose intolerant. Another bonus- it’s healthy!! If you just used bananas without any peanut butter it will be 0 grams of fat. Also bananas are loaded with good nutrition. Click HERE for some nutrition facts about bananas. You have to try this!
