Skinny Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt

April 7, 2014
No need for an ice cream machine! Just bananas, PB, milk, Greek yogurt, and chocolate chips - SO good!



I don't have an ice cream machine. There are times of the year that I really, really want to have an ice cream machine. Now is not one of them.

I finally got around to cleaning out my kitchen cabinets and now I'm onto the loads of stuff in the basement. We have TOO MUCH STUFF. It's nice to have a lot of appliances to use if I come across something I want to try, but you know what? It's just more stuff to dust - you know?? I already "regularly" use a lot of my appliances, so the rest needs to hit the curb. 

Can you tell spring cleaning has hit my brain?

"Just stick it down the basement," I say to myself all winter long. Ug. I'm such a procrastinator. Well folks, the time has come. I'm feeling a big yard sale coming on, or quite a few trips to Goodwill in my future!

You'll be delighted to find out that you DO NOT need any kind of an ice cream maker to make this frozen yogurt at home. Not only that, but this stuff has no added sugar and is super healthy! You will want to pin this for the summer!


Skinny Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt

2 frozen bananas
4 oz single-serve cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup semi sweet miniature chocolate chips (optional) (but not really)


Place bananas, yogurt, peanut butter, and milk in a blender and blend/pulse until smooth and no more frozen banana chunks remain. Scoop into a plastic container and stir in the chocolate chips. Cover and freeze for 30-45 minutes for soft-serve consistency. Or, freeze solid and then uncover and heat in the microwave 45 seconds at a time on 50% power until scoop-able. 



My kids seriously devoured this! I would much rather have them eat this than regular ice cream. Be ready for some awesome variations, my mind is already going!!

  17. Yum! I make this with the bananas, peanut butter, unsweetened chocolate and milk but never thought to add yogurt!!! great idea...Isn't that soo true---when I make this for my kids they think it is the yummiest ever and I feel great knowing I have given them a healthy treat:) Try the unsweetened chocolate----it is amazing---the sweetness of the bananas are all the sweetener you need...it tastes just like chocolate ice cream.....
