Peanut Butter Banana “Ice Cream.”
This ice cream is defined as ice cream by me even though it’s actually an ice cream. But I mean that in the best possible way, if there even is such a thing as non-ice cream being a best possible ice cream thing. You might not even realize that the non-ice cream is actually not real ice cream because the texture (even though it’s just frozen bananers) is just. like. ice cream. What is going on.
This whole yummy thing is just sweet, ripe frozen bananas that have been smoothed out in the blender and then laced with a little vanilla, a little cinnamon, and a good dollop of peanut butter creaminess. And this whole yummy thing is also my complete meal replacement plan for the next long time because peanut-butter-banana.
As a general food lovers I try to eat more of the foods that I really like. Namely dark chocolate, melty-cheesy food, pasta with so much extra sauce that you can’t even stand it, and Pad Thai slash curry.
But that being said, there’s one beloved food I’ve been trying of and its name is shugr. We talked about that when I started to be Granola-person by putting DATES (the brown wrinkled ones? yes) in my four-ingredient green smoothies.
Recently my sister told me that this banana ice cream trick is a really good one, so today I’d like to report back on the results of this creamy banana dessert-ness.
How in the heck does this even happen? I seriously cannot believe that bananas alone can create this creamification that rivals the beauty of ice cream. It is magic and fireworks and love at first *bite.* Had to.
I’m really into almond butter at the moment and during one of the millions of times that I’ve made this in the last few days used almond butter instead of peanut butter. Mmk now. Being a major fan of almond butter, I feel very confident speaking the truth in love: this recipe is simply.
Peanut butter and banana are lovers that should not be separated.
And if you are reading my mind (or maybe I’m reading yours?) you’ll know that this begs for a sprinkle of coarse sea salt. You guys. I don’t know why but just YES.
And now I’d like to officially welcome you to the World of Weirdly Delicious Recipes That Qualify as Both Breakfast and Dessert.
This ice cream requires a heavy duty blender. Garage sale freebies are probably a no-go for this recipe (and yes, I do have one of those, too). I always have the best results with my Blendtec Designer Series Blender. If you’re in the market for a new grown up blender, this has your name all over it.
