Prep Time: 5 minutes         Cook Time: 1-2 hours of freezing time          Yield: 2 cups (4 servings)   


  • 4 large bananas, sliced and frozen (about 4 cups slices)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. plain milk, either dairy or non-dairy
  • 4 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2-3 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Peel the bananas and slice them into coins. Place the banana slices in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Freeze the banana slices for at least 2 hours, or until completely frozen.
  2. Once the banana slices are frozen solid, transfer them to a blender or food processor. Add the vanilla extract, milk, cocoa powder, and peanut butter to the blender. Blend the ingredients on high speed until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the blender or food processor as needed. The mixture should have a texture similar to soft-serve ice cream.
  3. Serve the banana ice cream immediately for a soft-serve consistency. If you prefer a firmer texture, transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container and freeze for an additional 1-2 hours before serving.
  4. Scoop the banana ice cream into bowls or cones and enjoy this delicious and healthy frozen treat! Garnish with your favorite toppings such as fresh fruit, chopped nuts, or a drizzle of honey, if desired.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use ripe bananas with brown spots for maximum sweetness and flavor. Avoid overripe bananas as they might result in a mushy texture.
  • If your blender struggles with the frozen bananas, let them sit for 1-2 minutes to soften slightly, or add a splash more milk.
  • Mix in other frozen fruits like strawberries or mango for a fruity twist.
  • Store leftovers in a freezer-safe container with a lid. Place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream to prevent ice crystals from forming.
  • Allow the stored ice cream to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before scooping to make it easier to serve.
