Peanut butter and banana Ice cream

icecream3

Gone are the days when we could just pick up anything we like and just put it in our mouth. Now the health precedes over the tongue and compromises have to be made.

You can have ice creams now and then, but not as much as you can have bananas. So if you can get the banana to be in the ice cream avatar, it’s a win-win situation. The last time when I made one ingredient banana ice cream, I was hooked onto it and tried a flavored version again. Peanut butter and honey with banana is a favorite of mine and this ‘ice cream’ didn’t disappoint me.

However my husband, who respects banana as such and never likes it in any other form, stayed away from this one. Try this with an open mind. This may not be exactly an ice cream, but its tasty and saves you a bunch of calories.  May be you will hooked onto it as well!

Once you get it, transfer into a freezer friendly container and freeze again until its solid. Scoop out and serve. Top with honey and sprinkles if you like to.
