With summer coming up in a few months, it’s time to start recipe hunting for the best summer desserts. I’ve seen recipes floating around on the internet for ‘Nice Cream’ which as far as I can tell, is just ice cream made from bananas rather than heavy cream. And it’s ‘Nice’, because it is substantially healthier for you. So, I got to experimenting with my own flavors in the kitchen, and I came up with this Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream. And it is to die for! It’s so smooth and creamy, and contains no added sugar. It’s also a great ice cream for those with dairy allergies, or those wishing to avoid dairy. This recipe also doesn’t use coconut milk or coconut cream, because those are high in saturated fats and aren’t exactly the healthiest. Prep time is quick, less than 10 minutes, and then you just have to be patient while it freezes for a few hours :).

  • 2 ripe bananas, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch Kosher salt


  • Add all ingredients to a blender or a food processor and process until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer blender contents to a freezer safe container and wait at least 2 hours for it to freeze.
  • If desired, garnish with ice cream toppings such as sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, etc. Enjoy!


  • Alternatively, if you want to eat it immediately, you can taken frozen banana pieces blend them until smooth, add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until incorporated.
  • If you decide to make a big batch of it and store in the freezer like I did, then you will need to let it sit out at room temperature for a bit before eating. I put mine into 8 oz mason jars, and I had to let them warm up at room temperature for 45 minutes-1 hour.
