Skinny Frozen Banana Peanut Butter

We have had one the hottest July’s this year, last I heard we are on day 18 of having 100+ degrees.
It’s been a scorcher here!
With the heat it puts one thing on my mind….Ice cream, I love love ice cream!
But with dieting and watching what you eat I can’t always indulge with ice cream, which makes it a very sad day for this lady!
But now I have great news!
This recipe is great and its only about 90 calories a serving and its perfect for when you need an ice cream fix.  I never would have known it wasn’t ice cream if I didn’t make it myself.
Skinny Frozen Banana Peanut Butter
 
Prep time

Total time
 
Ingredients
  • 2 bananas, frozen
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter, Reduced Fat
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa
Instructions
  1. Cut banana into slices and place in freezer until well frozen. Place banana, peanut butter and cocoa in blender and combine until smooth.
  2. Indulge immediately or savor for later and place in the freezer.
Notes
I did use over ripened bananas but i don’t think it matters in what state your bananas are in. I even think it would be great to add some coconut, or Nutella or mini chocolate chips instead of cocoa.

  1. I’ve definitely got to try this! Sounds so good and healthy. The Nutella sub sounds delicious, but that would add sugar – so will stick with the cocoa. Thanks for an amazing post.
