Yes, you read that correctly. Just two ingredients to make the creamiest most delicious soft serve ice cream you’ve ever had. This is one of the easiest desserts you can make and you don’t need an ice cream maker! Anytime you have bananas that are getting a little too ripe to eat, peel and slice them, then pop them in a container in the freezer to have on hand when you’re craving something sweet. You could also use this recipe method for lots of different frozen fruits – let us know your favourite flavour combo!

Serves 2


3 frozen bananas
2 tbsp peanut butter (or your favourite nut butter)

Optional toppings:
Sprinkle of chopped peanuts
Dark chocolate
A pinch of sea salt
Dried banana chips
Cacao nibs


If you’re using a high powered blender:
Place the frozen bananas and peanut butter into the blender and blend until smooth. Spoon into a bowl and serve with your favourite toppings. If you prefer harder ice cream, pop in the freezer for at least 2 hours to harden up, then serve.

If you’re using a food processor:
Defrost your frozen bananas or fruit for 20-30 minutes on the bench before adding them to the blender or use a splash of nut mylk to help the frozen bananas or fruit blend. Spoon into a bowl and pop into the freezer for at least 2 hours to harden up. Serve with your favourite toppings.
