Chocolate PB Banana 'ice cream'

This is one of my most favorite healthy desserts to make. For those who know me, you know I LOVE ice cream. So about a year ago I discovered how to make a healthy balanced meal out of ice cream ;)

ingredients for one serving:
1 ripe banana
1/2 tbsp natural peanut butter
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
1/4 cup skim milk

200 calories (approximately)
21 g protein
(may vary depending on type of protein powder)
30 g carbs

1. Slice banana into 10 or so pieces & place in ziploc bag & then into the freezer until frozen.

2. Put frozen banana into a food processor or blender & add peanut butter, milk & protein powder.

3. Blend until smooth creamy texture.

*Enjoy immediately if you like it soft serve style or put it back into the freezer for a more "frozen" style.

I love to make different flavors like Vanilla Banana with sliced strawberries {or any fruit for that matter} & almonds, Vanilla Banana with sugar free choc or caramel syrup, be creative!


  1. mmmm that looks SOO good, I am for sure making this!

  2. Question, what kind of protein powder do you like? I posted this on my blog today because I need some advice!

  3. I usually get mine at GNC & the kind I buy is GNC Amplified Wheybolic & I get a container of Chocolate & a container of vanilla!

  4. This looks soo good! My biggest problem is salty cravings! What do I do?!
