Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream
Do you know that you can easily make ice cream without an ice cream maker??? You only need a blender and you can enjoy a guilt-free dessert. Talk about easy!
Well, it’s not really ice cream but I promise, the consistency is very similar to ice cream…creamy, sweet, cold and it’s so good!
This peanut butter banana ice cream is made with only two ingredients, no dairy, no added sugar, vegan, super healthy and tastes amazing. The ingredients? Frozen bananas and peanut butter. The riper the bananas, the sweeter the ice cream will be.
I am sure you have all these ingredients on hand :)
Freeze chopped ripe bananas, put them in a blender and blend until totally creamy and delicious. Add the peanut butter and pulse until combined. You can eat your ice cream as soon as it’s done or, if you like it really firm, put it in the freezer for an hour or two then scoop it into bowls or cones.
It’s also very quick to make, especially if you already have frozen banana in the freezer.
You can add a few extra toppings, like nuts or some chocolate chips to make it even tastier. You can even replace the peanut butter with cocoa powder and make chocolate banana ice cream.

I have some over ripened bananas in my fruit bowl side eyeing me. Was going to use them for banana bread but I’m going to make instead. Looks delicious
