I know I’ve written before about my undying love for anything with chocolate and peanut butter.
And that ice cream is pretty much my favorite food.
So this chocolate peanut butter nice cream? I could eat it straight from the blender.
Oh who am I kidding… I do eat it straight from the blender.
And on more than one occasion, it’s been my dinner. Thankfully the ingredients are so healthy that it’s actually quite a balanced dinner!
(Or, at least that’s what I tell myself.)

Anyways, I’m not saying it’s every day.
But seriously though.
In each creamy, melty, smooth, rich, chocolatey, peanut buttery serving, you get protein, vitamins, antioxidants, and healthy fats – all while thinking you’re eating dessert.
It’s the best of both worlds!

The recipe was adapted from my Healthy Chocolate Ice Cream, and I like it even better than the original recipe.
Mostly because it has more peanut butter.
What’s not to love?!
*Note: This recipe uses banana for creaminess and natural sweetness, but if you can’t eat bananas or prefer banana-free ice cream, there’s an option linked in the recipe for that too!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Nice Cream
- 4 frozen overripe bananas (for banana-free, try this Almond Milk Ice Cream instead)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter, or allergy-friendly sub
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- optional 1 tbsp dutch cocoa or chocolate protein powder
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
- Make sure the bananas are at least partially brown before chopping and freezing them. Combine all ingredients in a blender, food processor, or Vitamix. Process until completely smooth, adding a little milk of choice if your blender isn’t strong enough to handle the frozen banana. (If you’re not using a high-speed blender like a Vitamix and don’t want to add any liquid, simply thaw the bananas a bit before blending.) Either serve immediately as soft serve, or freeze for up to an hour before scooping out with an ice cream scoop for the classic ice-cream look. This tastes best the day it is made, but you can technically freeze leftovers for up to a few weeks and thaw before serving.View Nutrition Facts
