Banana-Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt

Banana-Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt: A simple, delicious, three-ingredient frozen treat! www.FearlessHomemaker.comMy (newly!) TWO-year-old daughter has recently learned a new phrase: Ice Cream Truck! We moved into our current home less than a year ago, and little did we know that we’re apparently on the daily route for the neighborhood ice cream truck. When we’re out playing in the backyard, we can hear its tell-tale music approaching, and my little lady excitedly says “ice cream truck! ice cream truck!” And while I don’t mind letting her have an occasional treat from the truck, I prefer giving her something a little bit healthier, and a little bit more homemade. And that is how I stumbled across this recipe for Banana-Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt. It combines three of her favorite foods simply and quickly to make a delicious, satisfying, hot weather treat.

While this is just as scrumptious and creamy as store-bought ice cream, it’s healthier and more natural than many of the ice cream truck’s options, and super simple to make, with a mere three ingredients. It’s wonderfully balanced, with richness from the peanut butter, a tart bite from the Greek yogurt, and natural sweetness from the bananas. The three ingredients are all familiar enough to my daughter that they made the frozen yogurt an instant hit with her, yet they’re complex enough together that this isn’t merely “kid food” — it’s appealing to adults, too. So, if you and your family are looking for a wonderful homemade frozen treat to cool you down on these hot summer days, give this awesome recipe a try!

Banana-Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt

serves 4, adapted from Food Network

Ingredients

3 ripe bananas, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup peanut butter*

*Note: If peanut butter is a no-go in your household due to allergies, almond butter, sunflower seed butter, and cashew butter all are good substitutions.

Directions

Put the banana pieces in the freezer until frozen.

Put the frozen bananas in a blender and puree. Add the yogurt and peanut butter, then puree until smooth. Transfer the contents to a freezer-safe bowl. Return the contents to the freezer and freeze until ready to scoop. Frozen yogurt may have to sit out at room temperature for 5 minutes or so for easier scooping. Serve cold.

She’s so adorable with her ice cream cone! This ice cream sounds so simple and so delicious.

That was her first-ever ice cream cone, hence her look of shock. =) She has had plenty of frozen treats and ice cream, but never in a cone until I took these pictures. =D

Perfect snack, sweetie! Especially now when summer is coming. These look much healthier than the ice-cream you can buy in a store. Yummy, yummy!

She’s such a little cutie! And I’d love this frozen yogurt, too.

Happy happy 2nd birthday to your lil one. She’s so so adorable! Love this healthier frozen yogurt, my son is a big fan of this but I still haven’t tried a peanut butter version. It sounds delicious!

The ice cream truck is fun but it must be hard to have it so close on a daily basis. I am a big fan of this banana ice cream. Not that it is nice and toasty it is a great way to cool off a bit in the evenings.

What a cutie! I can’t imagine living so close to an ice cream truck’s route. Sounds too tempting. This looks like the perfect healthier option :)

Aw, I always wished I lived on an ice cream truck route. Your daughter is lucky, and so adorable! This recipe sounds fantastic! :)
