Banana Nice Cream with Peanut Butter and Chocolate
makes 1 pint
This is my take on the "nice cream" trend that uses frozen bananas to make an ice cream-like treat. I added peanut butter and melted dark chocolate to make it decadent and play off of the banana flavor. You can serve it immediately like soft serve, or let it harden in the freezer and scoop it out later. You'll want to take it out 5 minutes before serving to let it soften enough to scoop.
2 bananas, peeled, sliced thinly and frozen
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
2 ounces dark chocolate melted
1. In a food processor, pulse frozen bananas until they start to break up. Then run the food processor continuously until you get a smooth, even mixture the texture of soft serve. Add peanut butter and blend completely.
2. Using a spatula, add a heaping scoop of the nice cream to an empty deli pint container. Drizzle in a little of the chocolate with a spoon. Add more nice cream, etc, continuing to layer until the pint is full. Let solidify in the freezer for 2 hours and serve.
