RECIPE: Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Honey & Banana ‘Ice Cream’

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

Yield: 2

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.

That's it!

As always, enjoy! :)

    I LOVE making Ice Cream out of frozen bananas (actually just bought a whole bunch of almost past-ripe ones at the market just to freeze to be able to blend up). These extra flavors in this sound beyond awesome!

    yum yum yum

    Oh wow! I just made it and it tastes sooo amazing! Okay, it still needs to freeze but I already love it :) I used agave syrup instead of honey, though. Thanks for the idea, it’s genius!! :)

    Really? This doesn’t have any dairy? WOW! I love this! I think this could become an addiction!

    I just made this one this evening and it is fantastic! It still hasn’t firmed up, after 2 hours, like I had hoped, so I’ll have to wait until tomorrow night’s dessert to fully dive in. Thanks for the great, simple recipe!
