In our last post, we talked about improving an old childhood favorite with the addition of ice cream.
today? We’re here to show you how to turn one of your favorite childhood sandwiches into ice cream. The classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s flavors were pretty much a universal childhood experience. Matter of fact I loved it so much, and had to have it so often growing up, that by high school I had to take a 10 year hiatus before I could appreciate it, let alone love it again.
And this isn’t just any old ice cream recipe, either. Oh-no. This pb&j ice cream only calls for THREE ingredients, and is pretty healthy as far as indulgent desserts go. I had the hubs as soon as I used healthy and ice cream in the same sentence. And he wasn’t disappointed when it came time to taste-test 🙂 It received universal approval from the sons too ( but mum
3 Ingredient Peanut Butter & Jelly Ice Cream
5 frozen bananas
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup grape jelly
- Put the peanut butter into a blender or food processor.
2. Add the frozen bananas.
3. Blend on high for several minutes, or until you’re sure the bananas and peanut butter are fully processed and incorporated, making sure to scrape the sides as you go, and the mixture is creamy.
4. Transfer to a freezer safe dish and use a spatula to gently fold in the jelly, but not fully stirring them together. You want ribbons of jelly throughout.
5. Enjoy immediately for a soft serve ice cream or seal the dish & freeze overnight for firm ice cream.
