Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

Ok so I did end up making this the other day but things have been busy so I have not had time until tonight!  I have been busy with my current Pinterest project so stay tuned…I am hoping to finish it this weekend.  Anyways back to the pb banana ice cream.  I keep seeing posts of it called vegan ice cream but I am not vegan so I will just call it what it tastes like…and that’s pb banana ice cream! It even had the consistency of ice cream!  I was not expecting that at all.  It was like fresh soft serve ice cream.  I added some peanut butter and ice, which was what most of the recipes of them called for.  There were some that had additional ingredients….like honey, and almond milk….So I decided to try all of them…plus I did not understand why it kept saying just peanut butter and frozen bananas.  I don’t know what kind of blenders these fools own but mine is a cheap one…and it needs the liquid for whatever you are mixing it.  (Usually mine is mixing piña coladas!)  I used almond milk but I think regular milk would have been just as good…maybe some greek yogurt maybe?  That would be good…Note to self…next time use some greek yogurt to make frozen yogurt 🙂  I did see a few recipes that called for cocoa but I wanted to try the pb banana first.

I almost did skim milk instead of almond milk but since we had some on hand I decided to give it a try.  I think with a little milk it would be just as good.

Deliciousness!  I think next time I will add some cocoa powder or maybe a few dark chocolate chips!

Peanut Butter Banana “Ice Cream”

Ingredients:

4 thinly sliced frozen bananas

ice

1 healthy scoop peanut butter

1 generous squeeze from Mr. Honey Bear

milk or almond milk to desired creaminess

I didn’t put specific amounts on everything because I usually just eyeball things like this.  I was scared to put too much milk in because I was wanting more of an ice cream texture…not a milkshake.  Honestly it made a decent helping.  I would say it could serve 2-3 but you could do 4…I would suggest adding ingredients though because it was “seconds” worth by the end of the first bowl!  I can’t imagine how bad an extra bowl would be…I mean its fruit and peanut butter!  Alex was very impressed and it was well worth the effort!  I chopped and froze my bananas overnight but I read in other recipes that you could chop them and freeze them for 3-4 hours so if you are planning on it…I would definitely make sure to get them thrown in the freezer in time.  This dessert is absolutely making my recipe box to help with that killer sweet-tooth of mine!
