Welcome to the world of homemade ice cream! Today, we’re exploring the delightfully simple and delicious recipe of Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream. This is a three-ingredient wonder that requires no ice cream maker. All you need are ripe bananas, creamy peanut butter, and a touch of honey.
This dessert is not only tasty but also healthier than traditional ice cream. Plus, it’s perfect for those who are lactose intolerant or prefer dairy-free options.
- Bananas: 4 ripe bananas. The riper the better, as they provide natural sweetness and a creamy texture when blended.
- Peanut Butter: 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter. This adds a lovely nutty flavor and richness to your ice cream.
- Honey: 2 tbsp of honey. This adds a touch of extra sweetness.
- Freezing the Bananas: Begin by peeling and slicing the bananas. Arrange them in a single layer on a tray lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid. This should take about 2 hours.
- Blending the Ingredients: Once the banana slices are frozen, put them in a food processor. Add the creamy peanut butter and honey. Blend until the mixture is smooth. This might take a few minutes and you may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor a few times.
- Serving or Freezing: Now, you have a choice. You can serve the ice cream immediately if you prefer a soft-serve texture. Alternatively, you can transfer it to an airtight container and freeze it for a couple of hours for a firmer texture.
Serving Your Ice Cream
You can serve this Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream just as it is, or you can get creative. Consider adding a sprinkle of crushed peanuts on top for some extra crunch. You could also drizzle a little extra honey or even some melted dark chocolate. Serve in a bowl or on a cone.
