Guilt-free Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream | She's Wanderlust: Guilt-free Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Guilt-free Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

November 23, 2014

So Maggie and I have a new favourite snack. She loves bananas and peanut butter, as do I. Thus, making the below delicious and guilt-free snack our new favourite!


Last week, I was really craving something sweet after dinner, as per usual. I have a huge sweet tooth. But I try to pick healthy snacks and sweets. Sometimes this can be challenging when I need to stock up on dates, cacao and nuts to make some outrageously delicious bars I will share at a later time. So I only had a couple of things to work with. One, I always throw my getting-over-ripe bananas in the freezer since they are perfect for smoothies. And two, between Maggie and myself peanut butter is a necessity in the house. So when I came across Two Peas & Their Pod's recipe I had no idea why I hadn't thought of this earlier! I used to make a very similar berry version with our Yonanas - have you heard of this? Well if you love ice cream as much as I do, you need one of these. It turns frozen fruit into a soft serve guilt-free dream. You need a banana (or mango) to get the right consistency, hence the name. And since I couldn't bring everything and the kitchen sink on our journey, the Yonanas was left behind. But not to fret, our trusty Vitamix can do virtually everything.

      

So all you need to do is throw a frozen banana and some peanut butter in your vitamix, yonanas or blender and voila a delicious and guilt-free snack! You can follow this recipe, or play around with the portions depending how peanut-buttery you want it. Or, go crazy and throw in some cacao powder for a chocolatey version!

Someone wants more.

I hope you enjoy it as much as Maggie and I - we can't get enough!

P.s - It freezes great as well! Make lots so you have some on hand for the next time that sweet tooth kicks in!
