I love ice cream, especially during the heat of the summer. But when you’re trying to eat healthier here’s a great option, Chocolate Peanut Butter Nice Cream – a healthier ice cream option!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Nice Cream
It’s creamy, refreshing and packed full of delicious chocolate, peanut butter flavor.
We almost always have frozen bananas for smoothies. I find it easiest to cut or break them into chunks prior to freezing.
- 2.5 frozen bananas chopped (about 3 cups)
- 3 ice cubes
- 1/4 cup cacao/coco powder
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter + 1 tablespoon for mixing
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons almond milk
Get everything ready and chop the frozen bananas into chunks to make it easier on your blender. (I like to freeze them already broken into chunks for making smoothies)
Place the bananas into the blender or food processor followed by the remaining ingredients (reserving one tablespoon of peanut butter)
Blend until combined. If using a blender you will need to use a tamper to blend the mixture as it will be thick. If using a food processor you may need to stop and scrape down the sides.
Blend until thick and combined. Use a spatula to place mixture into a large bowl.
Stir in the remaining peanut butter for a swirl look.
Divide into two bowls and enjoy!
