instructions to Make Healthy No-Churn Ice Cream

Step 1

Slice the bananas and freeze until firm.  

Note: Freeze in a single layer and once hard you can place them in a freezer bag until you’re ready for them.

Step 2

In a powerful blender or food processor blitz the frozen bananas.  

Note:  I find the food processor works best and you might need to wait a few minutes for the bananas to soften slightly.

Step 3

Once smooth, add cocoa powder and peanut butter to taste. Start with a scoop of each and build from there until it tastes just how you or your kid likes.  

The tasting is my son’s favorite part!

Step 4

Enjoy it right away for a soft serve treat! Or place the mixture in a plastic container and place in the freezer until hard enough to scoop.

I hope the next time you’ve got a few spotted bananas you stop yourself from throwing them out and make ice scream instead!
