5 Minute Chocolate Peanut Butter "Ice Cream"

Did I mention that it's healthy too?

Let's face it.  Sometimes there are mornings when all I want to do is eat ice cream for breakfast.  This recipe makes that desire acceptable.

One of the perks of being "grown-up" is that you really can eat whatever you want for breakfast, and mom or dad or whoever isn't there to raise an eyebrow and wag a finger at you as you sit shamefully at the kitchen table.

Still, I like to think that my mom raised me well, and so that's why I eat ice cream made of bananas for breakfast instead.  The bananas add all of the sweetness and creaminess needed to make it taste just like ice cream.

5 Minute Chocolate Peanut Butter "Ice Cream"
Inspired by The World's Healthiest Ice Cream

Yields: 1 serving


1 frozen banana, sliced
1 TB peanut butter
1/2 tsp to 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder


Slice banana into small chunks and freeze over night.

Add banana slices, peanut butter, and cocoa powder to a food processor.  Blend until creamy.  You may have to scrape the sides of the food processor once or twice.

Serve and eat as is like soft serve, or chill in freezer until "ice cream" reaches desired texture.


  1. Interesting idea! Sounds great - I'll have to try this. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I need to try doing this! Love the banana, PB, & chocolate combination. I think it's really funny that they sell a machine to make ice cream from bananas when all you need is a blender or food processor.

  3. Haha, they do?! That's hilarious...and also kind of sad.

  4. I would definitely eat this ice cream for breakfast every day. And feel so good about it.

  5. I have wanted to try this FOREVER but still haven't. I need to change that asap!

  6. I can't get over how easy this is! And so much better for you then regular ice cream. I want!
