Peanut Buddy Nice Cream

Peanut Buddy Nice Cream Recipe

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes


4 large very ripe bananas, frozen (black spot bananas)

¼ cup of creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla

A pinch of fine sea salt


1First peel your very ripe bananas and pop them in the freezer. The perfect nice cream banana is past the point where you would want to eat it fresh out of the peel. The skin will be soft and covered all over with dark brown or black spots, indicating that the starches have turned to simple sugars, making them naturally very sweet. Once frozen, cut them into chunks. Bananas that are just slightly thawed blend up creamiest so you can microwave them for 30 seconds, or just let them sit on the counter for a short while before slicing. You’ll know they are ready to blend when you can make a slight dent in the banana when pressed.

2A high-powered blender is really helpful when making nice cream as it powers through the frozen fruit creating a super creamy consistancy. I use a Vitamix which has a tamper that enables you to push the food down and around the blade. If you have a blender without a tamper, you will just need to stop periodically to scrape the sides of the container.

3Add your bananas, peanut butter, vanilla and salt to the container. Don’t worry, you won’t taste the salt but it will help marry the flavors together. Blend, starting on low and working up to medium speed, until the mixture is creamy and looks like thick soft serve. This takes about a minute. The friction of the blades creates heat which will melt your nice cream, so be carefull not to overblend.
