Almost Instant Banana-Peanut Butter Nice Cream


You have to try this goodness-only ‘nice cream’ really soon – it contains nothing more than the perfect simplicity of frozen bananas, peanut butter and a drizzle of honey, and it’s horribly delicious. Try adding in a handful of toasted pecans or a teaspoon or two of raw cacao or even espresso powder for a little extra snazziness if you like.



Cooks in:        Serves:2

  • 2 large ripe bananas, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter (no added sugar or salt)
  • 1 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1-2 Tbsp cold milk/yoghurt or just water for dairy-free, to loosen if necessary
  • Toasted nuts, to serve (optional)

What to do

1. Place the bananas in a freezer-proof container and freeze for at least 3 hours.

2. Once the banana pieces are frozen, place in a blender with the remaining ingredients and blitz until you have a smooth consistency. Serve immediately with a scattering of toasted nuts, or return to the freezer for 15-20 minutes to firm up a little more if you prefer.
