Peanut Butter Banana Icecream

I have a mega sweet tooth and am always looking for healthy ways to satisfy it.  The best part about this sweet treat??  There's only 2 ingredients!

4 bananas (frozen)
2 tbsp all-natural peanut butter

It's so simple!  Peel, slice, and freeze 4 bananas (more or less depending on how much you want.)

Once the bananas are frozen, place them in a food processor (or blender).  Keep processing and scraping down the sides until the bananas are smooth ice cream consistency.  Be patient - it takes a little while.  Then add in 2 tbsp of peanut butter and mix until well blended.

You can eat it immediately if you like a soft serve texture.   We placed ours in a freezer safe container and froze it for several hours so ours would be more like ice cream.  

Try adding cocoa powder for a chocolatey taste, or substituting peanut butter for almond butter!  Mix-ins are also a fun idea!

dark chocolate chips
berries or dried fruit
- walnuts or pecans
- drizzle with honey
- drizzle with melted cookie butter

Can you guess who will be asking for a Yonana Maker for Christmas?

1/4 of the recipe is about 150 calories!  And essentially, all you've eaten is a banana with some peanut butter - but in a much more exciting form!

    1. I do the same thing after dinner - I feel I deserve a treat, haha! At least this way I'm just eating bananas and peanut butter, but feel like I'm getting something better!

  5. Simple and delicious! I love peanut butter and banana on toast so this really appeals to me. I have some bananas in the freezer already so I'll be able to try it. Thanks for sharing.
