I scream. YOU scream. We ALL scream… for NICE CREAM?
I had been on a year long no banana”diet – aka my low sugar diet including all forms of fruit. So nice cream just wasn’t on my radar since it wasn’t something I could indulge in.
Even now, bananas are a bit higher sugar than my stomach can tolerate on a regular basis, but every now in then some banana nice cream does the mind good.Â
The great thing about this ice cream is that you really only need one ingredient.. and that’s frozen bananas. Beyond that, you can really add any mix ins or ingredients that you want. I found that adding peanut butter or another nut butter provided some good fat that helped the banana ice cream get really smooth and SUPER creamy. And the vegan chocolate chunks? Well those were just because they’re delicious.Â
I honestly couldn’t believe that it only took 3 ingredients to make this vegan banana chocolate chunk ice cream that tasted so delicious and felt SOOO indulgent! I really felt like I was eating something that I shouldn’t be full of dairy, eggs and sugar. But nope, just eating my healthy (ish) banana ice cream! It was so easy to make in fact, that I even made this nifty video for you guys to show you that this dessert is totally doable and should always be kept in your freezer. At least, that’s what I do ðŸ˜‰Â
¼ cup peanut butter
Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Place banana slices on the baking sheet. Freeze for 2-3 hours until frozen.
Add frozen bananas to a food processor. Spoon in the peanut butter. Process 5-10 minutes, until completely smooth.
Stir in the chocolate chunks. Freeze for 1-4 hours, until ice cream is firm. Defrost for 5-10 minutes before serving.
