Banana ice cream, peanut butter, and chocolate come together to make these delicious banana peanut butter ice cream bites. This dessert contains no dairy or added sugar making it a fun and healthy tread during those hot summer months!
Since I’ve discovered banana “ice cream”, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to enjoy this delicious creation. My favorite thing about this dessert is the chocolate! The banana ice cream helps calm my sugar cravings but at the end of the day, I’m a choco-holic. Coating the banana ice cream mounds with dark chocolate was just the perfect way to address my daily chocolate cravings.
These peanut butter bon-bons are fun to make with the kids and you can enjoy them on a hot summer day without feeling weighed down and guilty!
banana peanut butter ice cream bites
- 2 bananas-thinly sliced
- 1 Tbsp all natural peanut butter
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil (raw, virgin)
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- Thinly slice the bananas and place in a ziplock bag.
- Place the bag in the freezer until the bananas are frozen- about 2 hours.
- Place the frozen bananas in a food processor and grind until the bananas are creamy- this will take a few minutes and be sure to scrape down the sides of the food processor often.
- Add the peanut butter to the banana mixture and continue to process for a few more seconds.
- Scoop out teaspoon size mounds of the banana mixture and place on a plate covered with parchment paper.
- Return the mounds to the freezer for 5 minutes.
- In the meantime, place the coconut oil in a mug and melt in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.
- Add the cocoa powder to the coconut oil and combine thoroughly.
- Remove the banana mounds from the freezer and dip them into the chocolate mixture, one at a time.
- The chocolate will harden quickly and you can store the bon bons in the freezer for a quick snack with no need to defrost.
