Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Ice cream with just two ingredients. How could I resist trying this? I thought it might be overwhelmingly banana flavored, but surprisingly, it was not. This actually tasted like ice cream.

The texture was amazingly smooth and creamy, much smoother than homemade ice cream typically is, and the flavors were a great combination.

The kids really loved it and I was excited to be able to hand them all such a healthy treat. Ice cream for the kids with no added sugars or sweeteners? That is a serious win in my book! The boys have already requested it again.

Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

Recipe adapted from and with thanks to The Kitchn
Pin Print Review
Servings: 4 servings


  • 6 bananas not overly ripe
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter


  • Slice the bananas into 1/2"-1" pieces. Place the banana pieces in the freezer for 1-2 hours. (Do not try this with bananas that have been in the freezer overnight. Learn from my mistakes!) In a food processor or a very powerful blender, puree the frozen banana chunks. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed and continue blending until smooth. Once the bananas have turned into ice cream, enjoy as is or add the peanut butter for a truly amazing treat. This is an excellent soft serve ice cream straight out of the food processor.
  • You can freeze it further, simply by placing the ice cream in your freezer once it is smooth. This will result in a firmer, yet still scoop-able ice cream within a few hours.

    Laurie, I used my Vitamix both of the times when I made this. However, with the completely frozen overnight bananas, that blender was not happy.

    I use completely frozen whole bananas in my smoothies all the time, but without any liquid to assist in the pureeing it was not easy. With the bananas that had only been in the fridge a couple hours, it was incredibly easy.

    I have one of those vitamix blenders so I have tried many ice creams made like this…never added peanut butter…will try this one.

    I have done this before with completely frozen bananas– it works, just takes a while (using a food processor). For the time-pressed, the 2 hours would work well. I like to keep bananas in the freezer when they turn brown and this way I have them whenever I want them. I need to try this with peanut butter!
