Looks can be deceiving! This ice cream isn’t made from a traditional heavy custard – it’s made from fruit!
Frozen bananas, when blitzed, yield a wonderful creamy texture. For this dessert I have paired the bananas with peanut butter and raspberry jam but bananas also work well with chocolate, almonds, cinnamon, and honey. I will be trying a version with Nutella next!
So before those bananas in the fruit bowl turn completely black, peel, slice, and bag them. Store them in the freezer until you are ready for a healthy fruity ice cream fix.
Banana, PNB & J Ice Cream
4 very ripe bananas, sliced and frozen
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup raspberry jam
decorated waffle cone
fresh slices of banana
Place the frozen banana slices into a food processor or blender.
Blitz until smooth and creamy. Add the peanut butter and blitz again. The consistency is like a very soft soft-serve ice cream and may be eaten straight away if you prefer.
Layer the banana and peanut butter ice cream in a container with some jam.
Swirl and smooth over. Place in the freezer to firm up.
To serve, fill a waffle cone with slices of fresh banana and scoops of the ice cream. Top with peanuts.
