Frozen Banana Ice Cream with Peanut Butter and Nutella
Ice cream made with bananas? Yep! And it’s awesome! Sometimes I wonder why I buy bananas. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them. I go through periods where I eat them on the regular and then there are times when they sit on the counter until they practically walk away. It’s amazing how a frozen banana can transfer into ‘ice-cream’.
Some tips, though, for making this the best ice cream (or, um, nice cream ever)—>
- When freezing bananas, ensure that they aren’t too ripe. If they are, your end result will be more ‘banana-ey’….not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, but you do want the other flavours to shine through…in this case peanut butter and Nutella.
- Prior to freezing, peel those bananas. Place a piece of wax paper on a baking sheet and cut your peeled banana up into chunks. This makes it easier on your food processor.
- Speaking of which, depending on the model/strength of your food processor, you may need to blend the bananas up in batches initially.
- When the nice cream is ready to freeze, I like to place in a wax paper lined baking pan. I do this so I don’t scrape the heck out of my pan when scooping up to enjoy.
- When you are ready to shove this nice cream into your pie hole, remove from the freezer for about 10 minutes to soften slightly and make it more scoop-able.
- Drizzle extra melted Nutella on top and sprinkle with peanuts for extra oomph when serving up.
As my hubby says, this Peanut Butter Nutella Banana Ice Cream is a weekend treat without the Monday guilt 😉 Don’t know about you, but I am totally down with that!
