Vegan caramelized banana peanut butter ice cream for those days where you want something creamy and sweet.

Nothing’s more depressing than being turd-tastically sick with clogged sinuses and a nose rubbed raw with 70-cent boxed tissues. My body hasn’t acclimatized to the warmer weather yet and soup and hot tea is far too warm for my body to handle right now. So I made some ice cream to soothe my throat and to use up the 6 overripe bananas I had. Yes, I realize it’s ridiculous that I had 6 overripe bananas, but it was a large bunch and they all ripened so fast ><.

Now if you want a really simple ice cream that doesn’t need an ice cream maker, try out Savory Simple‘s recipe. We had a mind meld and came up with almost identical recipes. However, if you have access to an ice cream maker, by all means. Give this a try.

It’s light, creamy and smooth, and has a lingering peanut butter flavour that makes this like a banana peanut butter sandwich. Caramelizing makes it just a tinge sweeter, but you can skip that if you don’t care for the extra step. In any case, just purée the bananas with milk, coconut oil, and agave and throw it into the ice cream machine. I initially wanted peanut butter swirls in the ice cream, but I went and added it too soon. If you like the swirl, try adding it when you are transferring the frozen goodness into a pan to set in the freezer. That way you can swirl it by hand instead of accidentally having the machine mix it completely into the ice cream.

  1. This sounds so yummy! I personally am not a banana fan (although I think it’s more of a texture thing), so I haven’t jumped on the banana ice cream craze. BUT… maybe… just MAYBE this is going to be the recipe to make me take the leap.

  3. Sounds delish! Can you taste the coconut at all? As much as I want to like coconut I can’t stand it.

    • Hi Sheri! Not at all. You can sub it for refined coconut oil, which doesn’t have any coconut flavour, or vegan butter like Earth Balance or Vegan Becel.
