Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Cups might be my favorite candy of all time.  I make my own so I know everything that goes into those little candies of heaven.  Not having the patience to melt chocolate and then wait for them to form in the fridge I took it upon myself to make ice cream.  Seeing as I don’t consume dairy (outside of CorePower) I searched and searched and searched for dairy-free ice cream.  I tried making one with corn starch but it just didn’t come out right.  There was that lack of creaminess (of course, no dairy Columbo.)

I then saw that if you blend frozen bananas that it would make itself into a cream and I thought banana ice cream?  That sounds awesome but what about tossing in other ingredients to make it ‘better’ and I did just that.

One of the recovery smoothies I make for any workout that is one hour or less is the Peanut Butter Cup smoothie so why not toss in the frozen bananas and see what happens.  Well……heaven happened.  I offered Karen a taste and three spoonfuls later we were practically tustling on the ground while Chico was slurping down the ice cream.

I have decided that I shouldn’t be selfish and will share this recipe with you.  It has a whopping four ingredients in it and anybody with a blender or even a magic bullet can make it.  I used the magic bullet but highly suggest you use a blender as it is more powerful.

PEANUT BUTTER CUP ICE CREAM

Ingredients: 2 frozen bananas, 2 scoops Herbalife 24 Rebuild Endurance (chocolate flavored protein powder if you don’t have Herbalife 24), 1 Tbsp PB2, 3 Tbsp Water

Nutritional Information: 423 calories, 75g Carbs, 3g Fat, 30g Protein (also a 2.5:1 Carb:Protein ratio so pretty good for after a workout as well)

Directions:

  1. Place all the ingredients in the blender.
  2. Press on and let whip until it becomes thick.
  3. Serve.

You can probably place this in the freezer and scrape the icicle off the top every 20-30 minutes but it really wasn’t necessary.
