We have a policy in our house: if a banana turns spotty or brown, it gets peeled and put in a glass container in the freezer. These frozen bananas come in handy for smoothies and peanut butter banana ice cream, an all time favorite among kids and adults alike.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons organic peanut butter (preferably creamy)

(Yep, just two ingredients!)

Directions:

Peel bananas and place in a plastic freezer bag or container. Freeze for 2+ hours. You can also slice them, for faster freezing.

Place bananas in the blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Add in the peanut butter and blend to combine.

For soft-serve consistency, serve immediately. For harder ice cream, place the mixture in a bowl in the freezer for an hour or longer before serving.

For a creamier consistency, add 1-2 tablespoons of organic canned coconut milk.
