Three Ingredient Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
My kids are always having friends over, and I can never keep track of all of the different allergies they have. One ingredient ice cream to the rescue! If you have never heard of this before, you basically take frozen banana pieces and whiz them up in a food processor until they resemble ice cream. Gluten free, dairy free, nut free... Just a bowl full of health! And it really develops the consistency of ice cream. Scoop it in a cone, and away they go!
On Pinterest, my new addiction, I came across a variation on this one ingredient dessert, which my daughter and I tried out last night. Delicious! We kicked up the level of this treat to a three ingredient recipe by adding peanut butter and chocolate chips. The recipe is for one serving, but can easily be multiplied. The pictures below are a triple recipe. The ratio is basically one frozen banana to one tablespoon of peanut butter and however many chocolate chips desired. I like to use fairly ripe bananas, so they have natural sweetness.
This recipe can be changed by using butterscotch chips and caramel sauce, or maple syrup and walnuts. The possibilities are endless! This dessert is best prepared just before eating, because when stored back in the freezer it hardens beyond being scoopable. Hope you give it a try.
