*If you don’t have a food processor you can use a blender and add milk to make a delicious shake. I freeze my bananas whole in gallon ziploc bags when they are very ripe, and then slice them when I use them. As a shake it is a delicious green smoothie, just add 2-3 large handfuls of spinach.
“Banana Ice Cream”
3 large bananas or 4 small bananas, frozen and sliced
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder, optional (I prefer it)
2-3 tablespoons peanut butter
*1/2 cup milk (only if you want to make a thick shake in a blender instead)
In a food processor with the metal blades, add the sliced bananas and run until it looks like sand. At that point add peanut butter, cocoa, and chocolate protein powder, continue to process for 3-4 minutes. It will look like it is not going to work, form a ball, and then form into delicious soft serve. I love to sprinkle it with cocoa nibs, nuts, or coconut.
For a shake add all ingredients to the blender jar, and blend until smooth and well combined. Enjoy!
This is my go to treat for nights when Todd is craving sweets, and I want to share with him. This recipe is husband and kid approved, they all gobble it up. It is so creamy and scrumptious.

We make a similar smoothie pretty regularly. Costco has PB2, which is peanut butter powder. Less calories than peanut butter, good amount of protein, and still flavorful. Cocoa, frozen bananas, spinach, chia seeds, almond milk, and the powder. Flax seed or oil when we’re feeling baller cause that stuff’s cha ching $$. The kids love it. Not sure of the sugar status on the PB2 though.
I have seen that pb powder, definitely checking it out. Yum
