Bananas and peanut butter. Seriously… It takes just frozen bananas, peanut butter and a food processor to make this ice “cream”. I’ve been using a similar recipe for years, but it was just banana ice cream. I’ve even added cocoa to make a choco-banana ice cream, but the peanut butter version is the winner. It’s smooth, creamy, dreamy, banana-ry and peanutty all rolled into one.
A little forward planning is needed to make this dessert, but we tend to have over-ripe bananas in the freezer all the time. Once the bananas in the house get too ripe, their skins are peeled, and they are frozen whole. Then whenever I feel like this ice cream, I can whip it up in less than 5 minutes! No heating, beating, churning or additional freezing is needed.
Making this and eating it, is almost like instant gratification. If you’re feeling like a real splurge, drizzle some melted dark chocolate over the dessert once made.
NOTE: This ice cream is best enjoyed fresh. Do not freeze, because it changes the consistency and texture.
