Chocolate Peanut Butter Nice Cream
Whatever the season, ice cream is often a go-to for me. I’ve been hearing about “nice cream” for a while, so I decided to muster up some courage and give it a try. Very often, I’m never pleased with something on a first attempt and I really liked it. Even my boyfriend said - “wow, this is better than ice cream.” (disclaimer: he loves bananas and doesn’t love ice cream as much as me, so take that with a grain of salt).
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 bananas, peeled, sliced, and frozen (you can do up to 4, I just only had 3 bananas :))
1/4 cup of milk or milk alternative (I used oat milk and want to try with almond milk!)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, unsweetened)
1/4 teaspoons of chocolate pb2 (optional, if you don’t do this, I would do 1/2 natural peanut butter; I just wanted the extra chocolate and pb taste)
1/3 cup of cacao powder (can use cocoa instead if you like)
pinch of sea salt
1 date (optional)
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
Let’s make this bad boy:
Add the frozen banana slices and oat milk in a blender or a food processor (I used a blender and it worked just fine). Blend and pulse until smooth. I would pulse a few times and then check. You can push down the bananas with a spatula if it helps (and oh does it help).
Add the peanut butter, pb2, cacao powder, salt and date,and pulse a few more times to combine. She looks just like ice cream when she’s ready. Then, add some chocolate chips and stir em right in.
You can enjoy right away or freeze for later. I did a little bit of both :)
Have a nice cream day - yep. I am embarrassed with my own corny-ness but can’t seem to hit backspace. Be well xx.
