Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: banana, ice cream
Servings: 3
Author: Joy Bauer


  • 4 large ripened bananas peeled and frozen
  • Splash of milk; if needed use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, light coconut milk, soy milk or cow's milk
  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon semisweet chocolate chips


  • Break frozen bananas into large chunks and place in bowl of a food processor. (If your bananas have been in the freezer for longer than a day, it’s best to thaw for about 10 minutes before pureeing). Puree bananas until they are completely smooth and no frozen chunks remain. If bananas are too hard to blend, add a splash of milk for easier pureeing.
  • Add peanut butter to food processor and puree a few seconds longer to combine. Scoop into a bowl and serve immediately, or freeze for the future.
  • When you're ready to enjoy, top with chocolate chips and dig in
