Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

This banana peanut butter ice cream has a secret. It isn’t really ice cream!

Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Just like my chickpea cookie dough isn’t real cookie dough this is a take on ice cream that will satisfy your cravings.

This “ice cream” has no sugar added, no saturated fat, and it is incredibly simple to make.

The key is seriously ripe bananas.

Yes, those bananas that no one wants to eat because they look disgusting? They are sitting on your counter right now – looking at you. These are the key to the sweetness of the ice cream.

We all have them sitting there and we feel bad about them. Don’t feel bad anymore! Use them for a treat. I always freeze my bananas when they go too far as a way to avoid waste and make ice cream.

All you do is slice them, freeze them, blend them with some peanut butter and viola! This is tasty and hits that sweet, salty, fatty note that we love in sweets without the animal fat.

If you don’t like bananas, well I’m not sure what to say. I have met many a banana hater in my life and I am at a loss. My son used to eat so many that I was thinking of getting a share in a banana plantation. You can try my Disney Dole Whip Recipe. I use a blender to mix frozen pineapple with coconut milk to make a yummy and no sugar added treat.

If you have a high power blender, use it for this recipe. I have a $50 blender so I use my food processor to get the right consistency. Add some cocoa powder if you want a chocolate note – so good.

Have you made frozen banana ice cream? What did you think?

Use PB2 in this!!!

Sounds delicious...would this work with PB2?

One of the best things about this ice cream is that you can add all sorts of ingredients to change the flavor profile. It's a great whole food alternative to both dairy and dairy free ice creams. Thanks for sharing.

What other peanut butters can you use?

Just for info; many of us love bananas but do to migraines some can not eat them. Bananas make a natural chemical that causes migraines. I personally make things like this for my family the kids think its funny when I steal a taste. Thanks for another great recipe

Thanks. Will try this soon. Sounds good.

Wondering about subbing peanut powder with some stevia?

I love nut butter & bananas & my husband loves ice cream this looks like a winner. 2 ingredients is fantastic. I just got a VitaMix so this will give me something to try it out on.

I used chocolate PB2 and a little unsweetened coconut milk to get the consistency I wanted. I’m one of those banana haters; love the taste, hate the texture. This “ice cream” is so good! I cut sugar out of my food and this addressed that craving for something sweet. Thank you for this brilliant recipe; I love it!

Hi, enjoy your site. I've made chocolate pudding using those ugly bananas and cocoa powder. It's a favorite!
