We had it for the first time Monday morning on top of pancakes. The boys thought it was the greatest thing ever. And since it was all banana, I had no problem giving them some extras!
After dinner, though, I was craving something sweet and creamy. Namely, ice cream. Or frozen yogurt or sorbet since ice cream really isn't part of the diet any more.
I got to thinking, though -- I wonder what would happen if I added some melted chocolate and peanut butter to the banana soft serve?
I'll tell you what happened: ohmygoodnessgracious goodness!
Now it doesn't taste exactly like ice cream -- so don't go and whip this up and come back to me complaining that it didn't do it for you -- but it is creamy and sweet and if you liked the Chocolate Covered Banana Bites, then you'll love this just as much! The boys thought it was ice cream, and I would have made another batch pronto except that I just used the last frozen bananas...
So here we go!
Chocolate PB Banana Soft Serve
Serves...4 small bowls or 2 large ones.
- 3 large frozen bananas (I found that leaving them on the counter for 10-15 minutes worked really well and was easier for my food processor's motor)
- 1/3 c chocolate chips
- 1/4 c smooth PB
- Coconut flakes or chocolate chips for garnish
-- Meanwhile, gather your chocolate chips and PB. Microwave the chocolate until melted and pour into the food processor. Plop in the PB, too, and ship the "soft serve" for another 3-45 seconds until all combined.
--Spoon out into cups/dishes and garnish!
