Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice cream

I don’t know about you but my vice is ice cream, especially in the summer. I mean come on … I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! In an effort to bring some health to this summertime family addiction, I grabbed some frozen bananas, peanut butter, cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips, and an ice cream maker and tried my hand at some healthy(er) homemade ice cream and it wasn’t too bad! I mean listen, if you are expecting this to taste like DQ ice cream, you will be sorely disappointed so let’s have some realistic expectation here. 😉


  • 2 frozen bananas
  • ½ cup, cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup, all natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1 cup, Almond Milk
  • ½ cup, chocolate chips  (plus more for topping)


  1. In a blender, mix all the ingredients (minus the chocolate chips)
  2. transfer the mixture to your ice cream maker
  3. once the ice cream is done, transfer into a freezer – safe container for later or serve immediately!
