I have a major sweet tooth. Going sugar free is a real challenge for me. This tasty banana “ice cream” hits the spot. It has only three ingredients and is super simple to make. Really you just need frozen banana. I added peanut butter for flavor, which might be my favorite add-in for banana ice cream. Cocoa powder and almond butter are great too. I added coconut milk to make it easier to blend in my not-so-powerful mini food processor. If you have a powerful blender, you probably won’t even need the milk. This couldn’t be any easier or healthier given how indulgent it tastes.
We regularly end up with over-ripe bananas. I’ve made a habit of slicing them and freezing to use for this recipe and for no-guilt peanut butter fudge. I recommend slicing the banana and putting it in a single layer on a plate to freeze. Once frozen, transfer the slices to a freezer bag. Freezing in a single layer prevents them from sticking together.
Do you have any tips for using up over-ripe bananas? Share in the comments!
Healthy 3-ingredient peanut butter banana “ice cream”
Recipe by Destination Belly
1 banana, sliced and frozen
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon milk (optional- it will make it easier to blend but will result in runnier consistency. I used coconut milk but other kinds will be fine.)
Add banana and peanut butter to a food processor or blender. Puree until the texture is even and smooth, stopping periodically to scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add coconut milk if you’re having trouble getting it to blend. Serve immediately.
