I love ice cream but not the sugar or calories. Peanut butter “nice” cream is my solution to those cravings for sweet creaminess that hit this time of year. It is refreshing and 100% guilt free with 3 simple ingredients.
Combine frozen bananas, maple syrup and MaraNatha creamy peanut butter in a food processor or high powered blender and blend until creamy. You may need to stop and scrape the sides a time or two while blending to be sure the ingredients are well combined.
Serve immediately for soft serve “nice” cream or pour into a glass dish, cover, and freeze for 1-2 hours for a version that is easy to scoop.
