Peanut Butter & Banana "Ice Cream"

Happy, happy Wednesday!  I hope you are having a fabulous week so far.  I have a small feeling that your week is about to get better...  I do not know about you but, I love ending my nights on a sweet note.  Often, I go for a protein mug cake or protein muffins topped with my beloved sunflower seed butter and a side of fruit.

Now, I'm sure you have seen the concept of banana ice cream a billion times but, to be honest I have never had an interest in making it.  A craving sparked the other day for ice cream and I went ahead and gave the good ol' banana ice cream trick a try.

Ingredients:
3 frozen bananas (dice prior to freezing)
1 tbs of honey
4 tbs. of Peanut Butter & Co Powder Peanut Butter (or 2 tbs of your favorite peanut butter)

I also used:
a high speed blender (Omni V)
a small old plastic ice cream container with a lid
coconut oil spray (any cooking spray will do)

Directions:
Freeze your diced bananas 3-4 hours prior to making your ice cream.  Pour the milk and place bananas, honey and peanut butter into your blender.  Blend until well combined, the blending process should take about 5 minutes.  

Spray your plastic container with cooking spray.  Pour in your banana ice cream mixture into your plastic container.  Make sure your plastic container has a lid.  Place your ice cream container in the freezer for 4-8 hours.  Take the ice cream out of the freezer about 30-60 minutes prior to serving, this will allow the "ice cream" to soften up a bit for easy scooping.

Serve and enjoy!

We love pairing our Peanut Butter Banana Ice-Cream with a slice of my homemade Paleo Banana Bread!
I hope you give this baby a try!  I have a feeling your family will love it as much as we do...

Do not forget to tag me if you end up making it!  I love seeing your recreations...

Have a happy, healthy day!

  3. Any other time I'd have 3-4 bananas on the counter and would be wondering what to do with them. Today, not a banana in the house. I can't wait to try this. It will be a good treat for this weekend.
