Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

A cool creamy treat with the classic flavor combination of chocolate and peanut butter. @jillconyers

Good morning! I’m so happy to see you.

This week we’re chatting healthy desserts. Maybe a chocolate chip cookie, strawberry cupcake or Creme Brulee. Or, a bowl of ice cream. I’m often asked if I eat dessert. Of course I eat dessert. I don’t eat it everyday and most likely it will include chocolate and will be homemade.

The one exception to homemade is the Flourless Dome Cake at PF Changs. A plate of warm chocolate goodness. It’s fantastic!

I’ve had this idea for a recipe in my head for a few months and never got around to making it. A cool creamy treat with the classic flavor combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

Nobody will even know it’s a “healthy” dessert!

  1. This ice cream looks delicious! I make an ice cream very similar to this!

  2. I hope I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like the choc and pb combo! Oh and I LOVE an ice cream recipe that doesn’t involve an ice cream maker (as if I have room in my freezer for that!)

    1. How could anyone not like choc and pb! I’m tempted to start asking to see if I can find someone that doesn’t 🙂

      Have a wonderful weekend Cat!

  3. Jill, this recipe is singing to me. Laaaaaa! Haha. I am a huge peanut butter and banana fan, but don’t add chocolate too often. Oooh. Can’t get over how healthy desserts look so much better than non-healthy ones. Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to try it. EEEee! #fitfamlove

    1. Add chocolate Jess! The combination is heavenly. Healthy always looks better!

  4. I must make this tonight! I just got lots of bananas, so I need to get a couple in the freezer pronto. I am a huge fan of banana ice cream too. And lately, a date with a spoonful of nut butter has been the perfect dessert.
    And I am PUMPED for next week’s topic!

    1. Jen did you make it? Delicious wasn’t it 🙂

      I can’t wait for next week’s Fit Dish!

  5. I keep seeing ice cream recipes using frozen bananas! I love ice cream and can’t stop buying half baked by ben & jerry’s 😉 but I obviously need a healthier option. I’ll definitely have to try this!

    1. Try it Patty! I think this is even better than the regular ice cream. Let me know what you think 🙂

  6. This recipe looks amazing… and rich! This is totally something that I would indulge on after a DAY! 🙂

  7. Looks delicious. I am not a huge ice cream fan but I have it every once in awhile, my husband would be a fan for sure!

    1. Hi Toni. I’m not a big fan of desserts in general but when I want a sweet treat this is perfect.

  8. I started taking plain greek yogurt with a TBSP of cocoa powder, a few drops of dark chocolate stevia, chopped strawberries and a sprinkle of chocolate chips. SO GOOD!

    1. Yum That sounds delicious Sue. I’ve made a similar dish with protein powder but your idea sounds better.

  9. Yay for healthified ice cream! :]! I love making ice cream out of bananas, and I’ve been especially loving the chocolate peanut butter combination lately! <3

  10. chocolate, peanut butter, bananas, oh yeah! I knew you would have something yummy! This is a must try sister!

    1. haha I’m happy to please! You’re awesome Mary Beth and you make me smile.

  11. You can NEVER go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter…It is the best combo EVER! 🙂 I haven’t made banana ice cream in a long time…It’s so good and so easy.

    1. Hi Katie. I don’t know why it took me so long to make this. I looked back at some of my recipes over the past year and there’s a lot of chocolate and peanut butter. Yum!

      Have a wonderful day friend!

    1. Hi Lindsay, honestly it’s the best plant based protein powder I’ve ever tried. Now it’s the only protein powder my husband and I use. Click the link in my sidebar for a discount. If you give me your address I’ll send you a packet the next time I have them 🙂 It’s THAT good!

  12. Artney @ My Pretty Brown says:

    I seriously CANNOT wait to make this! I have been seeing so many “ice cream” recipes using frozen bananas. I need to make it. All of my favorites!

    1. Make it Artney and let me know what you think. I actually think it’s better than regular ice cream.

    1. Hi Nicole, I don’t know why it took me so long to make this. I actually think banana ice cream is better than regular ice cream. Crazy?

  13. This looks great! I think I even have all the ingredients (I’d just use whatever powder I have on hand), so I will have to give this a try. You can’t go wrong with chocolate and PB!

    1. Let me know if you make it Erin 🙂 I looked back at some of my recipes over the past year and there’s a lot of chocolate and peanut butter. Yum!

    1. It is amazing Nancy! I actually think it tastes better than regular ice cream.

    1. Sarah, I actually think it’s better than regular ice cream! #fitfamlove xoxo

  15. this is pretty much how I make my banana ice cream, but I’ve never tried adding protein powder! Thanks, Jill!

    1. Hi Jess. I Skoop B-Strong to so many recipes. I couldn’t resist adding it to this too. #fitfamlove xoxo

  16. Oh yes, I’m totally giving this a try! I love these homemade, dairy free version of ice cream! Plus, you can never go wrong with PB and chocolate!

  17. YUM!!! I love banana ice cream! I swear it tastes better than the real stuff. Plus, you really can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. I think chocolate and coconut is another winning combination.

    1. I agree Pragati. It does taste better than regular ice cream.

      #fitfamlove xoxo

  18. This recipe sounds amazing! I have been craving ice cream lately as its gotten warmer, but we never keep it in the house. This sounds like the perfect solution- anything with chocolate and peanut butter has to be good, right?:)

    1. Lisa, you can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter! Enjoy!

      #fitfamlove xoxo

  19. If I only like peanut butter >sigh< My husband does, though, and reese's cups are his favorite so I'm sure this will be a winner for him! I'll be trying it 🙂

    1. Hi Heather. You know I never liked peanut butter until last year. I can’t remember what made me try it after a life without but I immediately loved it. Do you like any nut butters?

      1. Wow I’ve never heard anyone else who didn’t like it! No I don’t like any nut butter. I think I tried almond butter in protein balls once and it wasn’t so bad.

  20. Yum! Jill, this looks so amazing. I love all of those ingredients together. Especially the peanut butter and banana! Thanks for the yummy recipe!

    1. Happy to share all my favorite flavors in one yummy dish.

      Have an awesome day Sami! #fitfamlove xoxo

    1. Hi Meredith, I add Skoop to so many recipes. It’s the only protein powder I use. Yes, the best 🙂

  21. I haven’t tried the frozen banana homemade ice cream yet, so this recipe might be my first! EEEEP! 😀 Looks (and from the recipe, SOUNDS) delicious! <3 Thanks, doll!
