Banana and Peanut Butter 4-Ingredient 'Ice Cream'

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"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."

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 tha...

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, to...

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.

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 flavo...

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.

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 ...

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 th...

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 ...

AWESOME!! I love this recipe b/c I don't have an icecream maker at home so it's usually hard to find such a good recipe like this one:) I added the amount of liquid needed then added a little mo...
