Peanut Butter Banana V’ice Cream
Serves: 2 to 4
4 very ripe bananas
1/4 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
Pinch kosher salt
1. Slice bananas into 1/4-inch thick rounds and put into a zip-top plastic bag. Lay them flat in a single layer in the freezer so the rounds freeze individually. Freeze the bananas overnight.
2. Place the frozen banana slices, peanut butter, coconut oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a food processor or blender and let sit 2 or 3 minutes. Puree until creamy and smooth.
3. If you like a frozen yogurt consistency, serve immediately. If you like firmer ice cream, spoon it into a container and freeze for about an hour.
