Author Notes

This was inspired by the pile of extra-ripe bananas that was on the table at the little farm stand near my house where I buy vegetables in the summer. I love ice cream, but what I like most about this is that it's just bananas with chocolate and peanut butter.

And yet it tastes totally decadent. —drbabs

What You'll Need
  • 7 large very ripe bananas
  • 1 generous pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons vodka
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter, warmed till slightly liquid
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate, melted and cooled
  1. Mash bananas till pulpy but not liquefied. (I used an immersion blender.) Stir in kosher salt and vodka, and scoop into ice cream maker. Process according to the manufacturer’s instruction. When the sorbet is slushy and beginning to solidify (about 15 minutes in my ice cream maker), scrape in the peanut butter and the melted chocolate, a little at a time. As they come into contact with the cold sorbet, they will form little chunks of deliciousness. Scoop into little cups and eat like soft serve.
  2. And then maybe go home and have a nap.

This was wonderful. I always have the ingredients on hand and satisfied my before bed sweet tooth. Actually made a simple dinner and served for dessert. Husband loved it and so did I. Easy,pleasy and put a "scoop" on a chocolate chip cookie. We're big fans of banana, peanut butter, and chocolate. As my previous foodpickle question mentioned, we made without vodka and ate right away. Winner!

I'm so honored that you tried my recipe, and I'm glad that you and your husband liked it! On a chocolate chip cookie--now that was a great idea!

my husband preferred his sandwiched between 2 Tate's chocolate cookies. I ate mine, straight up with a cookie on the side.
