Healthy Banana & Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Makes 6 scoops
Preparation time: 5 minutes

The word healthy isn't usually followed by the words peanut butter, chocolate and ice cream, unless it is attached to the prefix 'un', but in this case, rest assured, while this recipe may not be diet food it certainly is a delicious, healthy and vegan alternative to store bought ice cream. It is also incredibly easy to make. 

3 ripe bananas, chopped up and completely frozen
1/3 cup of dairy-free milk
1 T unsweetened peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla essence
40 grams of dark chocolate, roughly chopped*

* I find this sweet enough but you can add more chocolate and 2tsp of liquid sweetener if you prefer


Blend all the ingredients and serve immediately. You can play around with this recipe and use different flavors, such as shredded coconut, expresso, pistachios etc.
