RECIPE: Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Honey & Banana ‘Ice Cream’
Pssst! I have a secret – this Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Honey & Banana Ice Cream isn’t really ice cream.
I know, I can hear you now, “Seriously? But it looks like ice cream!”
That’s exactly what I thought when I saw this recipe at thekitchn.com. I was even more delighted when I read the list of ingredients – peanut butter, chocolate chips, honey and bananas. That’s it! Actually, their recipe doesn’t call for chocolate. I added it – duh!
When I say I was delighted to find this recipe, I say this for a reason. You see, I’m on a mission to eat healthier, yet still satisfy my chocolate cravings. I just plan to do it without all the tons of sugar, fat and calories you find in most chocolate recipes. Of course, we can’t avoid them all the time. In fact, I still plan to share ooey, gooey sinful chocolate recipes, just less of them and, better yet, a healthier version.
I hope you’ll join me on my mission to become a Healthy Chocoholic who still enjoys the finer things in life – like chocolate! After all, with an open mind (and mouth), we can still get our “chocolate on”!
Now, let’s make some Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Honey & Banana Ice Cream!
RECIPE: Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Honey & Banana Ice Cream
1-1/2 peeled medium bananas, sliced into coins and frozen until solid
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 teaspoons honey
1 rounded tablespoon dark chocolate chips
Blend bananas in food processor or electric chopper until thoroughly smashed into a smooth pulp, like mashed potatoes.
Add the peanut butter and honey and mix thoroughly.
Remove from the food processor/chopper and place in a freezer-safe container. Add the dark chocolate chips and mix well by hand.
Freeze until solid.
As always, enjoy! :)
