  • 3 medium ripe bananas, halved and frozen
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (other milk may be substituted)


  • Chop the frozen bananas and place in a blender with the peanut butter and almond milk. 
  • Puree until very smooth and serve!


You can optionally caramelize the bananas first for added flavor (it's delicious). To do so, heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Slice the bananas in half lengthwise, add to the pan, and caramelize for several minutes. Use a spatula to flip the bananas and caramelize on the other side. The bananas may fall apart a bit, which is fine. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool for several minutes. Place in a resealable bag and freeze the bananas before continuing with the recipe.
