Aliciouslyvegan: Banana peanut butter ice cream smoothie

What if I told you that you could have ice cream for breakfast? And what if I also told you it could actually be good for you? Without any unnecessary fats or added sugars? Wouldn’t that be great?

Indeed.

Let me show you how to make it happen.As a fan of so-called “nana ice cream” or “nice cream” I have come to always have a couple of over-ripe bananas stored in our freezer to satisfy this sudden craving for ice cream when my head says that there is no way I can still be hungry.  Or for when I want ice cream but not the sticky-sweet kind.

Can you spot the heart-shaped date?

The other day we went to IKEA early on Saturday morning. Mr A was to have breakfast there but I knew I wouldn’t be particularly happy with my choice of a bare bread roll and jam, which currently are the only vegan options on their breakfast menu.

That’s when I decided to have a smoothie to bring along (so Mr A and I could have breakfast together. At IKEA. How romantic!).

 

Because I felt like something nutty & sweet rather than my usual sour/ savoury concoctions I decided to to try banana, peanut butter and oats with dates and almond milk.

Ingredients
  1. 1 frozen banana
  2. 1-2 tbsp unsweetened peanut butter
  3. 1 tbsp oats
  4. 2 dates
  5. dash of almond milk
Optional
  1. A few peanuts, 1/2 ts chia seeds or topping of your choice
Instructions
  1. If you froze the banana as a whole, peel it and roughly chop it into pieces. If you cut it before freezing and put it into a container (which is a very smart thing to do), take it out of the freezer.
  2. Chop the dates.
  3. Blend the banana & dates with the peanut butter, then slowly add almond milk and oats.
  4. Pour into your container of choice.
  5. Top with whole peanuts and chia seeds if you're feeling fancy.
  6. ...and you're ready to go!
Notes
  1. If you don't have a regular blender or an even fancier Vitamix, Thermomix or similar - or, like myself, are just too lazy to clean the whole thing - an immersion blender will do the trick perfectly well.

  1. Thank you Alice for the banana peanut butter ice cream smoothie recipe! It was absolutely delicious! I thought that one banana would be not enough for two greedy persons, so I doubled the ingredients. It was more than enough 😉
