It’s summer and you know what that means…. ice cream!

I don’t know about your house, but in ours when summer hits, my kids have ice cream (or popsicles) on the brain.

I have to admit, when the weather gets warmer I find myself thinking of nice cool treats too!

The problem is that so many of the store-bought products are full of absolute junk! I know there are a few brands that have decent ingredients, but even those usually have more sugar than I’d like.

So what’s a health conscious girl to do when an ice cream craving hits?

Make your own, of course! 😉

Now, I don’t have an ice cream maker, or the time or patience to make it with that method. So I had to find a quick, easy way to make a wonderfully cold treat.

For this recipe, there is no fancy equipment or ingredients, and the time required is just a few minutes.

Ice Cream Ingredients

  • 4 peeled and frozen bananas
  • 4 Tbsp. of peanut butter (or nut butter alternative)
  • 1 Tbsp of water (only if needed for blending)
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (these are my favorite!)

What To Do

  1. Peel bananas and place in the freezer until frozen
  2. Remove bananas from freezer and break into pieces
  3. In a food processor, add banana chunks and peanut butter (and water if needed). Blend until smooth.
  4. Add chocolate chips and mix in with a spoon.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

This ice cream recipe is simple, has healthy ingredients, and is perfect for a yummy summer treat!

My two resident taste testers gave it two thumbs way up!

I hope you like it just as much 🙂
