Easy & Healthy Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Our friend Liz gave us another great dessert recipe this week! Compared to her Chocolate Cake post, this Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream is easy to make and a healthy alternative. Thanks again Liz!

This recipe is sooo easy (only 3 ingredients) and can be modified a thousand different ways.  The original recipe uses Nutella but since I didn’t have any on hand, a little cocoa powder did the trick!

Adding the peanut butter and cocoa

Ingredients (serves 3-4):

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2 tbsp of peanut butter
  • 1 tsp of cocoa powder


Start off by freezing sliced ripe bananas overnight. Once they’re frozen, throw them in a food processor and pulse it up until the bananas are smooth and look just like gelato!  The bananas will first have a gravel-like texture…keep going (about 5 minutes).

Once the bananas are smooth, add the peanut butter and cocoa…or whatever else you would like. Frozen strawberries, mangoes, peaches, raspberries etc. would all be amazing!

Mmmmm…enjoy a guilt free delicious treat!
