Elvis Ice Cream

Dare I say this ice cream recipe is “healthy?” Low sugar, dairy-free and full of flavor, this might be my favorite new ice cream recipe.

Appropriately called “Elvis,” this ice cream combines chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas. The perfect ingredient to add creaminess and flavor, bananas are a lower calorie sub for cream. If you didn’t know any better, this ice cream taste just like regular chocolate ice cream so don’t think your subbing flavor for fat.

I’ve got 4 more delicious, dairy-free ice cream recipes for you coming in the next two weeks so stay tuned! And if you haven’t bought that ice cream maker yet, well, what are you waiting for? :)

Elvis Ice Cream

1 1/2 cups almond milk
2 tbsp. unsweetened chocolate powder
4 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp. Peanut Butter (I like Peanut Butter & Co brand)
2 very ripe banana

Blend together the almond milk, sugar, and chocolate in a blender for 30 seconds until sugar is dissolved into the milk. A high powered blender will do this for you; if your sugar isn’t dissolved in the milk then heat the chocolate milk mixture over low-heat until it is smooth and non-grainy.

Add the bananas and peanut  butter and blend for 1-2 minutes. Place the mixture into the fridge for 30-45 minutes until mixture is cool.

Place mixture into your ice cream maker and process for ~20 minutes until thick. Serve immediately or place into the freezer for a firmer ice cream. 

Let me know what you think,
