  • 3 large bananas
  • 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter⁠
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract⁠
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  • a dash of cinnamon⁠
  • a dash of nutmeg⁠
  • roasted peanuts for topping⁠
  • 2 tbsps coconut milk or other plant based milk


  1. Cut the bananas into small chunks and freeze until solid, at least 1-2 hours. Transfer the bananas to a very strong blender and blend until smooth and creamy. This will take a few minutes and may require periodic pauses and adjustments. It’s very loud and intense since the bananas are frozen, similar to adding ice cubes to a blender. Within a few minutes, you should be seeing a thick, creamy ice-creamy mixture in the blender.⁠

  2. Add the peanut butter, vanilla extract, spices, sea salt, and anything else you might like in there.
  3. ⁠Pulse the blender quickly to stir the ingredients all together and when everything is mixed, serve immediately. Top with additional peanut butter and crushed roasted peanuts.⁠
