Spiced Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

I am a banana-a-day kind of girl.  I eat one every morning, usually smooshed on a whole wheat waffle with a shmear of crunchy, all-natural PB.  Mmmm yes, girlfriend loves her some bananas.  Usually I will eat the whole bunch up before they go bad, so when my friend, Anna, raved over her recent banana ice cream creation, I knew I needed to buy maybe one or two extra and freeze them once they go bad.

Pro Tip #1:  Before freezing your bananas, peel and slice them into small pieces.  Trust me.  Whether you decided to use them in a smoothie or to make ice cream, it will make your life so much easier.

Pro Tip #2:  Never make eye contact while eating a banana.

{That was a joke just for Anna.  Hi Anna!  Nevertheless, solid advice.}

I know I am late to join the banana ice cream party, but better late than never, right?  Here we go!

You really can add whatever your little heart desires, OR you can eat it plain – just the delicious bananas. It’s THAT good.

I like to add the peanut butter for a little extra staying power, especially if you are having this as a snack.

And yes, you are correct- that IS a stemless wine glass I chose to eat my spiced peanut butter banana ice cream out of.  Keepin’ it classy, yo.  😉
