Hello.  My name is Melissa and I’m a Chocoholic.  And a Peanut Butteraholic. (Is that a thing? Because if not I need to make it a thing because the craving is REAL!) Luckily for me, I have this Skinny Ice Cream recipe, and it’s 0 Weight Watchers Smart Points, woo-hoo!

I am the first to admit that I have a HUGE sweet tooth, as you can tell from perusing my recipe gallery!! But lately, I’ve been hunting and digging for any way to satisfy my sweet cravings without blowing my commitment to my fitness goals (think Spartan Race this summer-yeah, I have a ways to go with training…but I digress.) I always keep sliced bananas in my freezer for my smoothies and whipped up this faux chocolate peanut butter ice cream a few weeks ago and LOVED it! It was perfect.  Now, if you don’t like bananas this isn’t for you, there’s definitely a bit of banana flavor in there, but the texture is just like ice cream and the combination of the chocolate and peanut butter flavors are the perfect craving-squasher!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sliced, frozen bananas
  • 2 tbsp PB2 Peanut Butter Powder (this stuff is awesome-peanut butter flavor and protein without the calories!)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened Soy Milk or other milk of your choice (I choose soy because it’s high protein-the more protein the more filling!)

Brace yourself-the directions are complicated….throw everything in a food processor or blender (affiliate link) and blend until uniform and smooth.  Whew! That was rough right? If you eat it right away it has more of a soft-serve texture but if you’d like a thicker ice cream texture just throw it in the freezer for an hour then scoop out with an ice cream scoop. For a little extra grate some dark chocolate over the top!

**Edited to add per reader questions: I eat a scoop or two at a time so I estimate this recipe makes 4 snack sized servings at 87 calories each.

I make a batch and keep it in a plastic container in the freezer for those late night chocolate cravings-just a scoop usually satisfies me and it’s awesome to not have the guilt and get a dose of protein in the process as well!

  1. Wondering how this would work if I added a partial scoop of protein powder to boost the protein??
