Banana, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip “Ice Cream”
I have made this banana, peanut butter, chocolate chip “ice cream” several times in the last few weeks since discovering it on another blog. It is so simple, easy and pure (without chemicals). There are three ingredients and all you do is put the ingredients in a blender or food processor and watch as the ingredients go from chunks to smooth and creamy resembling ice cream. I am sure you could use almond butter and it would come out great as well. The taste is not exactly like ice cream and initially it may be worth making half the recipe to see if you like it. That is what I usually do when testing recipes and I did that with this one as well. I loved it and have even topped it with a warm vegan chocolate sauce. It was so good. If you are someone that likes the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, you should give this a try. The banana acts as the “cream” and becomes a subtle flavor where the peanut butter and chocolate emerge to the forefront. Works for me!
Are you someone that doesn’t eat much ice cream during the winter, like me? Today, as it so happens, we are having another snowstorm in the Northeast. Schools are closed, the roads are all snowy and no one is really venturing out. It is really pretty, but I have to say I am really looking forward to spring by this point. Even though I don’t eat much ice cream in the winter, I make an exception with this banana, peanut butter, chocolate chip “ice cream”. And the lucky thing is I have all the ingredients on hand.
Looking for a quick afternoon snack? Give it a try.
- 2 bananas, frozen and then cut into chunks
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter (or almond butter)
- handful of chocolate chips
- Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
