Peanut butter ice cream, but the vegan healthy version! This recipe is creamy, delicious and high in protein. It combines three of my all time favorite flavors- peanut butter, chocolate, and banana.
I was debating whether to call it a peanut butter smoothie or peanut butter ice cream. I think that either one works because this could both be a great breakfast option, or a healthy dessert!
What you will need:
The ingredients for this recipe are simple. All you will need are: two frozen bananas, 2 tbsp chocolate protein powder, 3 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter, and 4 tbsp of dairy free yogurt. Add a pinch of salt to bring out the sweet flavors. I also topped mine with a protein bar, fresh banana slices, and some coconut chips.
Make sure you slice and freeze your bananas overnight before you make this. Frozen bananas create a much creamier consistency when blending and make the whole recipe resemble the texture of ice cream. Of course, if you want a more liquid drinkable type of smoothie, skip this step.
Once you have all of your ingredients, all you need to do is throw them in a high speed blender and blend until everything is creamy and smooth. I like my smoothies really thick, so I start off by adding just a little bit of yogurt and slowly adding more as needed.
At the end of this post, you will find a short video of the whole process. I think that visuals are super helpful so I hope it makes it easier to see how I made the recipe.
I really hope you enjoy this recipe! If you are looking for more delicious frozen desserts, try this blueberry frozen yogurt or these frozen yogurt fruit cups! For more smoothie recipes, I also have this cauliflower spinach smoothie and this blueberry morning smoothie!
Peanut Butter Ice Cream
