All week we have been celebrating the wonderful world of chocolate. Earlier in the week I shared with you an easy recipe for making homemade chocolate ice cream using bananas. Today’s recipe is another banana chocolate ice cream, with a few simple twists. Today we’ll make Homemade All Natural Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream by adding some all natural peanut butter and changing the amounts of cocoa powder.
It also pairs nicely with chocolate cake… and if you are feeling naughty, break up one of the sugar-free all natural chocolate peanut butter cookies and sprinkle it on top. YUM!
This is my favorite way to make ice cream with banana’s because it reminds me of a peanut butter cup.
Do you make homemade ice cream? What are some of your favorite methods and flavors?
Homemade All Natural Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream
- 4 frozen bananas
- 3 TBSP cocoa powder
- 2 tsp real vanilla
- 1 TBSP all natural peanut butter
- Put all ingredients in food processor and blend for a few seconds.
- Don’t blend too long or your frozen ice cream will turn to liquid.
- You can serve immediately or put in bowl with lid and put back in freezer.
Made this today and it was so easy to make! Let it freeze for several hours and it was amazing! My husband liked it a lot and he’s hard to please. He asked me to stir in some chopped almonds next time. I think that sounds very good!
Almonds is a good addition! We’ve done those, chocolate chips, coconut, and even some peanut butter.
This looks so yummy and such a fun treat to make this Summer!! Thank you so much for linking up at Tasty Tuesday! Your recipe has been pinned to the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest board! Please join us again this week!
Thank you so much Stephanie!

We southerners like adding slices of peaches and peach juice to a vanilla base recipe for homemade ice cream. Add whipped cream to the top of your bowl and it’s awesome!
I used to live in the south, so that is a tradition I am familiar with! Peaches on everything!
Oh this looks delicious – and I love that you can use a blender or food processor. Both of which I own. I definitely pinned this. I’ll be trying it this weekend.
Hope you like it!
This looks delicious! I cannot wait to make it for my family!
I am sold! This looks so good!
My husband and kids would love this! I’m not a huge PB lover, but they all could eat it daily! We’ll have to make this for them. 🙂
I hope you do and that they really enjoy it!

Debbie Denny says
Ooooo Chocolate peanut butter. Awesome and tasty.
I agree! My fave.
Wow, this looks so good! I love any chocolate peanut butter combo
My daughter and my boyfriend would totally love this idea. They are my chocolate fiens in house and my boyfriend is totally addicted to ice cream!
I love ice cream! I grew up in the south. Heat wave city. It was a must.
Danielle @ We Have It All says
This sounds amazing, I can’t believe you can make ice cream with bananas. How awesome!
It’s so addicting!
Oh my goodness!! Talk about the best flavor of ice cream EVER. I have to try this ASAP.
I hope you do.
I have to remember to eat before I read your blog! This looks awesome but I would minus the banana but I am craving ice cream!!
I am not sure how to make it without a banana. Perhaps an avocado. I know some folks do that.
Carly from The Puzzled Palate says
That looks so good! I will have to have my kids help me make this. Nothing better than learning to make a special treat!
I hope you guys have a great time creating and eating!
Yum Yum! I love pb and chocolate! HUGS
Chantelle Swayne says
This looks delicious! I have made something similar before, but never tried the peanut butter. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Hope you give it a try!
Wow, that’s so easy! I had an ice cream maker before we moved, but it was so big and heavy we gave it away so we wouldn’t have to haul it along. I could totally make your recipe though and don’t even need an ice cream machine to do it!
Perfect! I make different types of frozen treats without an ice cream maker. Like you, no space for that!
Candy O. says
Oh my! I’ll be freezing bananas tonight for this!! Thanks for sharing!
You are very welcome.
that looks very good. I used to love chocolate!
I really enjoy dark chocolate. Less sugar and better taste. I make a lot of my banana ice cream with Hersheys extra dark cocoa powder. lower in sugars and carbs.
Elizabeth @ Food Ramblings says

Making your own ice cream is so easy! I have no idea why I’ve been paying so much for ice cream at the store.
And so much healthier!
This ice cream seems like something my family would love to try! Not only do I love peanut butter and chocolate, but I also love homemade foods!
So simple and great ingredients that you dont have to worry about whats in it.
Marina @ Mommy Snippets says
THis looks yummy. I’m not a big peanut butter fan, but my Husband would love this!
Mine isn’t either so we make one that has a bit more vanilla to get rid of the banana taste and more chocolate.
This ice cream sounds delicious. I’ll have to make it with almond butter to make it paleo/primal.
I have done that too!
This looks so yummy! A perfect summer treat!
Anna @ family living on a budget says

Christina S says
