  • Chop your bananas and add to a large Ziploc bag. Freeze for about 4 hours (or overnight).
  • Once frozen add to an 8 cup food processor and blend until it is crumbly.
  • Add your peanut butter, coconut nectar, vanilla extract, and almond milk to your food processor.
  • Blend until smooth. Your mixture should be thick and "churn like" mimicking a soft server ice cream. Taste and adjust flavors to your liking.
  • Grab an 8-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper and add your ice cream to the pan smoothing evenly.
  • OPTIONAL: Grab your Date Caramel Sauce or additional peanut butter and swirl it into your ice cream.
  • You can either serve this as-is for soft-serve ice cream or cover it with additional parchment paper and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours to firm up.
  • Once it's firmed up, slightly thaw for 2 to 5 minutes before serving. Add some additional Date Caramel Sauce or any other of your favorite toppings
  • Keep ice cream stored in freezer for up to 5 days.

To make more or less of any recipe here, click on the serving amount and move the slider up or down. The recipe will automatically adjust the ingredient amounts.
  • Omit the coconut nectar and use any of your favorite natural sweeteners, such as maple syrup or agave.
  • Kept in an airtight container in the freezer, this ice cream will keep best for 5 days.
  • You can replace almond milk it with an equal amount of coconut milk or cashew milk.  You won't get as much protein, but the flavor will be divine!
  • The Date Caramel Sauce added to this ice is optional. However, it does add an extra boost of sweetness to this vegan ice cream so I highly recommend adding it!
