This month we’re making a Fit Foodie favorite dessert – banana nice cream. This isn’t any old nice cream flavor, it’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Nice Cream!
What is the Fit Foodie Cooking Club?
The Fit Foodie Cooking Club is a monthly cooking challenge to get you in the kitchen cooking from scratch!

May 2021 – The Details
Read the below details VERY carefully as we want to make sure your entry counts! If you have questions, please leave them in the comments of this post.
Recipe of the Month
May 2021’s recipe of the month is our Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Nice Cream, a delicious vegan and gluten-free ice cream made with only 4-ingredients.
Don’t let “vegan and gluten-free” scare you because this banana nice cream is seriously beyond delicious.
All About Banana Nice Cream
We love banana nice cream because not only does it taste and feel like real ice cream, but it’s better for you and so fun to make.
What is banana nice cream? Banana nice cream is healthy ice cream made with frozen bananas whipped in a blender and then frozen to get ice cream texture.
This banana nice cream recipe is made with two of our favorite things – peanut butter and chocolate chips to make it even more tasty.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Frozen banana
- Milk (any kind will work!)
- Peanut Butter
- Chocolate Chips
Tools You’ll Need
Below you’ll find the recommended kitchen tools needed to make banana nice cream. The main tool you need is either a high-speed blender or food processor. Either will work.
Frozen Banana: we like to slice our bananas and freeze them in chunks, but feel free to use whole frozen bananas.
Peanut Butter: can’t do peanuts? Feel free to use any nut butter such as almond butter or cashew butter!
Blender/Food Processor: we’ve made banana nice cream in both a food processor and a high-speed blender. Either will work. Just make sure you blend/process until there are no chunks.
Should I freeze it? You have the option to eat immediately for more of a soft-serve-like texture or freeze it to get an ice cream-like texture. Both are delicious, it’s all about preference.
