Two-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

This dessert is super fast and easy just like this smoothie. It only takes two ingredients: frozen bananas and peanut butter! And at least 30 minutes of chilling (duh! I know right?)

No-churn.  Just handy-dandy food ninja.

But it’s really worth the wait. It tastes good and healthier too! A good substitute for “real” ice cream for satisfying sudden cravings.  Or reward your your muscles after doing this workout. Or if your 2-year old boy is begging for ice cream, it’s 1:00 in the afternoon, 38 °C outside and getting a tub takes a 15-minute trip to the store. Good idea? Yes.
