Peanut Butter “Ice Cream” Made From Bananas

10 10 2013

This is a recipe for ice cream made solely from bananas. And, it’s amazing! I don’t know where to source the idea for this because the concept is all over Pinterest, and where I got the original idea. But I do share a little more detail about how I made this than what I was able to find in other recipes. I honestly didn’t believe the consistency would really be like ice cream, but I had to try it out. I stand mistaken. It truly is JUST like ice cream! I cannot wait to try all sorts of different flavors with this technique….I feel like a kid in a candy store, minus the guilt and sugar high of course 🙂 YIPPEE!!!!

Peanut Butter “Ice Cream” Made From Bananas

The following makes 1-2 servings:

  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1 Tbsp natural, creamy peanut butter

Slice ripe bananas and lay in a single layer in the freezer to freeze. I recommend at least freezing overnight.

Using a food processor, blend the frozen banana slices. At first it will blend into little clumps. Don’t give up though, just keep processing, scraping down the sides of the food processor with a small spatula and processing again. Repeat these steps until the frozen bananas begin to get smooth. At this point add the peanut butter and continue to process and scraping down the sides until it reaches an “ice cream-like” consistency (as shown above).

I recommend making this ice cream to order and serving immediately, as I’m not sure what the consistency would be like the next day.

I’m already excited about the endless flavor combinations I’d like to try out! Up next I think I’ll try a Tbsp of pumpkin puree rather than the peanut butter along with pumpkin pie spice. YUM!
