Equipment

  • High speed blender or food processor
  • Loaf pan
  • Ice cream scoop

Ingredients
 

  • 4 very ripe* bananas peeled & frozen ($0.64)
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder ($0.47)
  • 3 tbsp natural peanut butter ( $0.33)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract ($0.21)
  • 4 tbsp full-fat coconut milk ($0.14)
  • A pinch of sea salt, if using unsalted pb ($0.01)

Toppings optional

  • Chopped peanuts
  • Toasted coconut flakes
  • Peanut butter swirls
  • Dark chocolate chunks or chips

Instructions
 

  • To begin, peel, chop, and freeze bananas overnight, or until fully frozen. When the bananas are ready, add 4 tbsp of coconut milk to a high-speed blender or food processor. Then add in the bananas, vanilla, peanut butter, cacao powder, and salt.
  • Blend on medium-high until you achieve a smooth, soft-serve consistency, about 2-5 minutes. You may have to stop and scrape down the sides a few times. If it isn't blending at all, add in the rest of the coconut milk 1 tbsp at a time.
  • You can serve the nice cream at this point for a soft-serve texture. Top with garnishes of your liking (chopped peanuts, chocolate chunks, peanut butter drizzle, or toasted coconut flakes).
  • For a more firm consistency, transfer nice cream to a freezer-safe loaf pan or container. Drizzle more peanut butter over top and swirl in with a knife. Cover nice cream and freeze it for approximately 1-2 hours before eating.
  • When you're ready to serve, scoop nice cream into dishes and garnish with chopped peanuts, toasted coconut flakes, and chocolate chunks!

Notes

  • *Your bananas should be very spotty before you freeze them.
  • Optional ingredients are not reflected in the price or calories of the recipe.
  • For best results use a high-speed blender or food processor.
