Banana “Ice Cream”

Standard

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!
