CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BANANA ICE CREAM is a guiltless fake out ice cream that can satisfy the strongest sweet tooth!
I have found the secret to happiness! That’s right! I can’t oversell the truly incredible amazingness of Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream! I’m a HUGE fan of ice cream. Everyone in my little family is! I tend to not keep it in the house, because will power is not my strong point, but anytime I send my husband to the store he comes home with ice cream. Now I can make banana ice cream and not feel all that guilt!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream tastes like a soft serve version of a chocolate dipped frozen banana with nuts. It has the taste and feel of a creamy banana flavored soft serve but without all the fat and so on in the real ice cream. If you’re on Weight Watchers bananas are a zero points plus option so all you have to do is count the points in the chocolate and peanut butter. That breaks down to about 1 tablespoon a serving so it’s not bad at all!
I buy a lot of bananas in my house. My kids and I eat them in waves. Some weeks I can’t keep them in stock but others they start to over ripen on the counter. I’ve talked about my banana freezing habit before when I made Pumpkin Banana Bread. It’s such a great option but at times I freeze a lot faster than I bake and so I end up with way too many bananas. Now I’ve started slicing and freezing some to be able to turn into Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream. You can easily just make one serving whenever you have a craving. Just use one one banana, and 1 tablespoon each of the peanut butter and sweet cocoa powder.
