Vegan peanut butter banana ice cream is a simple and homemade easy to make dessert with just five basic ingredients. This dessert will keep you cool this summer and with lots of protein, it can be enjoyed after an intense workout!
Have you ever had ice cream as a post workout meal? With this recipe you can! This peanut butter banana ice cream recipe was inspired by my favorite post workout protein shake I been drinking for over 6 years. Not only is this ice cream protein rich but it has no refined sugar!
Of course I had to add an additional protein boost using Karuna’s Protein and Fiber drink!
Karuna’s Turmeric Coffee Sustained Energy drink This drink has 9 grams of plant-based protein way more than the standard over the counter almond milk you would buy. It contains plant based protein packed ingrediants like quiona, black soy beans, and flaxseed. It’s delicious on it’s own (and I often use this drink as the base of my workout smoothies instead of plant based milk) and it works wonderful in this peanut butter banana ice cream
Vegan Curve Building Ingredients
Peanut butter! My favorite ingredient in the entire world! I could eat jars of this every week! Peanut butter is highly caloric dense having about 200 calories per serving (2 tbsps) and 5 grams of protein.
To make you will need a food processor. Add all your ingrediants to your food processor.
Next blend until smooth and completely combined. If you prefer a soft serve ice cream you can serve it as is. Or you can transfer to a glass dish, cover and freeze for a few hours to firm up.
On your next curvy vegan workout try this as a post workout meal instead of a traditional smoothie. Not only will it cool you down but it will be a fun treat to eat! Enjoy!

Ice cream will be soft serve and if you want you can serve it this way. For a more firmer ice cream transfer to a glass dish, cover, and freeze for 3 to 5 hours. Let thaw slightly for 2 to 5 minutes and scoop adding your favorite toppings or eating as is.
Keep ice cream stored in freezer for up to 5 days.
- If you do not like the taste of stevia you can add 2 tablespoons of your favorite natural sweetener.
