Maybe its because we are in America, maybe its through the law of attraction, but yesterday, Peanut Butter was a prominent player in dessert. I have always loved PB, I think I may have mentioned before, my taste buds love the combination of savory and sweet. for confirmation of this just look at my post on the PB&J Burger!!
I would love to say that the following recipe was a Muddy Kitchen Floor idea. Its not. I would also love to give credit to the person who posted the first recipe I ever saw combining bananas and peanut butter and turning them into ice cream. Sadly, I cant, as I cant remember who is was. But I would love to thank the person who created this idea.
Basically it is so simple. Take some bananas, I used 5, and make sure the skins have patches of brown on them, that they are soft, but not too brown and mushy.
Roughly chop into pieces and mash them up into a bowl. You will end up with a not very appetising looking bowl of banana puree, it may look watery and bubbly. Its all good!
Stir in as much peanut butter as you want. I used 4 dessert spoons of peanut butter and a mixture of creamy and crunchy, but this was not really enough as the banana is a really overpowering. Next time, because I love the combination of nutty butter I will probably use 4 tablespoons of peanut butter and probably go for a more expensive brand type, like the whole earth peanut butters.
Then transfer your gooey, mushy, nutty, buttery banana into a freezable container, cover with a lid, place in the freezer and wait.
No need to stir every few hours to break up the ice crystals, just leave it alone. It took about 5 hours for it to freeze.
The banana really freezes well and tastes so creamy it is like eating calorie loaded ice cream!
My 4th grade taste tester E said it was great, but could do with a little more peanut butter goodness!
