There is nothing quite like homemade ice cream and this frozen treat is a favorite for both my daughter and me. It’s seriously yummy and so easy to make. Many of you bought this juicer and have been asking what else I use it for other than the daily celery juice. Here is a simple go-to recipe.
PEANUT BUTTER BANANA ICE CREAM
Just looking at this makes me want to whip up a batch of this peanut butter banana ice cream. If you have the same juicer we do (we use it daily) let me show a couple of things about how to switch from juicing to frozen treats.
Be sure to cover turn the black handle to stop the flow of anything coming out of this part (this is usually where the juice comes out).
The only other thing you need to do is swap these two parts. For anything frozen, always use the white one. I just remember that the white one looks like snow so I don’t forget.
When I freeze my bananas, I cut them into chunks and wrap a pizza box or something I already have in the freezer with foil. I let mine freeze overnight but they do freeze quite quickly. Once frozen, you can keep them in a freezer bag. Mine normally disappear too quickly to do that.
- 3 bananas – cut and frozen
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- cacao nibs for on top
- pinch of sea salt
- makes two generous servings
*As an alternative, you can use a handful of peanuts instead of peanut butter.
When you are ready for your ice cream, remove the bananas from the freezer and use immediately. Do not let them sit out as they will begin to soften quite quickly. Feed the frozen bananas into the juicer. Alternate between a few bananas and the peanut butter so they can thoroughly mix together.
While it will be messy, it is so worth it.
Once you have this, just give it a gently stir.
Do you have these? A fantastic alternative to chocolate chips. I don’t like them plain but they are perfect sprinkled on ice cream.
Serve with Cacao Nibs on top. I also add a pinch of sea salt.
*Breakfast tip: my daughter is rarely hungry for much first thing in the morning, so I often just run frozen bananas through my juicer. Easier to eat when you’re not starving to give her a little something before school.
Like I said, the peanut butter leaves quite a mess but I run wash with hot water and soap and literally put the sponge in one end and pull it out the other. Works like a charm. These parts are dishwasher safe, too. And of course you can use peanuts if you would rather but we love the creamy aspect the peanut butter offers.
Please let me know if you give it a try. I’m craving it right now. If you are interested in my juicer, you can grab one here. I like that it looks nice on the counter and is not too loud.
Don’t have a juicer? We love these nice cream cups, too.
Thank you so much for sharing. I would love to make this, but I don’t have a juicer. Do you think it would work to mix fresh bansnas and peanut butter and then freeze it?
I think that would make it into a hard block. I use my food processor, and blend frozen banana chunks, some sort of “milk” (to thin), nut butter, and cacao powder – it’s delish! Right out of the processor you can eat it with a spoon (like ice cream), or freeze in silicone cups for later.
