I make this for my family all the time! This is a great recipe for vegan/vegetarian diets, just replace the peanut butter with organic peanut butter or another nut butter. Substitute water for milk if desired. The more milk you add, the thinner and soupier your ice cream will be. Serve with sliced fresh fruit or handmade whipped cream.

This is great! Be sure you are ready to eat it right after you make it. It melts fast. I used a food processor because a blender is not strong enough. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly except that the bananas were not overripe. It was pretty good but I wouldn't really call it ice cream; both the consistency and flavor are far from it. I guess that's why the title put 'ice cream' in single quotes. Read More

One reviewer said it did not have the right consistency and flavor to be called ice-cream. That reviewer obviously did not use the correct tool for processing! I used a Ninja, and it turned out creamy and smooth! I used 1 Tablespoon of Splenda and doubled the vanilla and peanut butter. It was yummy! It tasted like creamy Banana-Peanut Butter ice-cream!

I was pretty skeptical of how this would turn out but I really love it!! It satisfied my craving for something cold and sweet (even though I left out the sugar). I hardly even like fruits too. I will definitely be making this again. (I used Coconut unsweetened vanilla milk) Read More

Yum! So easy to make and the whole family liked it. We added 2 spoonfuls of almond butter instead of peanut butter. Will definitely make again. Read More

This needed more milk to smooth out maybe 1/4 cup for 4 bananas. I cut back on the sugar & needed help to make this work in a blender. I did add a dash of vanilla - it really improved the flavor. Next time I will make this with room temperature bananas and just freeze it for later. Read More

I would recommend using 2 scoops of peanut butter (I used a regular spoon) and slightly more vanilla extract. Not too much more. I would also note that it is more similar to a shake/smoothie than ice cream so I would put it in a cup or glass and drink it with a straw than in a bowl with a spoon like ice cream. Read More

Yummy! I didn't have milk so instead of the vanilla sugar and milk I added a bit of yogurt. Topped it off with a few walnuts. Read More

Just made this it was creamy and made me forget any longings for real ice cream. But- I added more milk ( 2 tablespoons total) and more peanut butter (also 2 tablespoons) so it had a bit more peanuty flavor. I can't imagine it would've tasted much like peanut butter otherwise. Read More
