Ice Cream Fakeout


So I was watching Food Network Saturday morning – total shock, I know!  And on 5 Ingredient Fix, Claire Robinson featured Peanut Butter & Nanner ice cream.  The shocking part was there was zero cream and all the magic is in the frozen bananas- you will NOT believe your eyes!  I had to test this out for myself and I also made a few changes.

Here is what you need:

3 ripe bananas, Amber Agave Nectar, natural peanut butter

I chose to switch out the honey, used in the original recipe, for the Agave Nectar.  The Amber Agave Nectar has a maple flavor and is fantastic on pancakes & waffles too!  Agave Nectar is sweeter than honey though less viscous.

Cut up the bananas and put in a glass dish and put them in the freezer for about 2-3 hours

While those are in the freezer you can mix your peanut butter & agave syrup and a little magic ingredient called Penzey’s Pumpkin Pie Spice…yes I am obsessed with Penzey’s spices:)

and then the magic ingredient

Look at all those amazing spices in one bottle!

After the nanners are frozen- take them out and put them in the food processor

Blend, scraping down the sides until smooth…although, I did have a few chunks of banana and I loved it.  At the end you can pour in your peanut butter, nectar mixture and pulse the mixer to swirl it in……and then use an ice cream scooper and create this:


Try this immediately….no I mean really…go go go
