This chocolate peanut butter banana ice cream had me dancing around my living room!

Oh yes, Elvis would be proud. And hungry…

I’m a big Elvis fan. I listen to his music a lot, especially in my car where I can sing like a crazed banshee, much to Mini Chef’s dismay and embarrassment.

Clean Eating Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Recipe (1)

So any time I do something with peanut butter and bananas, I immediately start humming “Good Luck Charm” to myself (my all-time favorite Elvis song). And this ice cream was no exception. In fact, I may have thrown out my back doing a pelvic thrust or two from the freezer to the counter where the Yonana’s machine (affiliate link)Clean Eating Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Recipe (2) was sitting (yes, this can be made in a food processor as well).

A little bit of ice cream, and I should be fine…

MAKING BANANA BASED ICE CREAMS

The trick with banana-based ice creams, also known as “Nice cream” is in how you freeze your bananas. Make sure to use just-yellow bananas, not ones with brown spots. It makes a huge difference in the flavor of your finished ice cream. Peel and slice your bananas. Lay them out on a parchment-lined cookie sheet with a small amount of space between each piece. Freeze overnight. Then transfer to a storage container.

I buy bananas when they are on sale and freeze large batches of them so we have ice cream all summer long. And the best part is that we don’t have to wait for an ice cream maker to churn for hours. Just blend and serve!

That being said, you have to choose carefully whether you will use milk with this or not, and well as how much you add. You don’t need it at all if you use a Yonana’s machine. But if you use a food processor, you might need some. Too much will give you anything from soft-serve ice cream to soup. Not enough, and you’ll burn out your food processor motor from the strain. So add a small amount to start with (a tablespoon or two), and add more as needed, a tablespoon at a time until you have a consistency you like. If you have a powerful processor, you may not need liquid at all. The processor you use will also play a part in determining how much liquid you need.
