  • ¾ cup peanuts roasted& unsalted ( ¾ cup peanuts yield ½ cup peanut butter)
  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds soaked water for 15 minutes
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups frozen bananas or 3 large frozen bananas(peeled and frozen) chopped
  • ½ tbsp. vanilla extract

  • Soak chia seeds in water. Keep it aside for 15 mins.
  • Grind peanuts to make nut butter in a spice grinder. Keep grinding peanuts in short pulses until the oil is extracted and it gets a soft silky texture.(you can skip this step and use a store bought peanut butter)
  • In a blender, add the nut butter, frozen bananas, vanilla extract and chia seeds along with maple syrup and salt(optional) . Blend until you get a smooth mixture.
  • Pour the mixture in an ice cream tub and add some roasted chopped nuts or chocolate chips on top.
  • Cover it with cling film. Close the lid and let it set overnight of 5-6 hours in the freezer.Do not keep your freezer to coldest setting as it will end up with very hard dessert.
  • Before serving, wait for 5-10 minutes before scooping and serving. Serve it in cone or cup with extra chopped nuts, chocolate sauce
  • Notes
  • You can use store bought peanut butter as well.
  • Do not keep your freezer to coldest setting as it will end up with very hard dessert.
  • I don’t mind adding a pinch of salt in the ice cream, it helps to enhance the sweetness.
