Healthy Recipe: Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate “Ice Cream”

Banana “nice cream” is the ice cream you get to call a healthy snack!


A sweet reminder that a healthy substitution does not equal deprivation. This recipe is ridiculously simple and made with ingredients you are likely to already have in your pantry. Blend up a batch and keep it in the freezer for a healthy warm weather dessert. Or serve it in a cone at your kiddo’s next birthday party. 


4 large bananas, broken into small chunks, and previously frozen

1/4 cup canned lite coconut milk

1/4 cup 100 percent pure peanut butter, unsweetened, no added salt (creamy or crunchy)

pinch of sea salt

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips


Place the frozen banana slices and coconut milk in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula as needed. Add the peanut butter, pinch of salt, and maple syrup and blend again to combine. Stir in chocolate chips at the end.

Transfer to a container with a lid and freeze until solid. Serve in a cup or a cone anytime—heck, you could even eat some with breakfast! 

Makes 6–8 servings.
