Clean Eating Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

6 Comments

Yum!  I love ice cream and never thought there could be a healthy substitute.  Behold!  A clean eating recipe that was approved by Daddy and Baby.  Cocao powder has iron, magnesium and zinc.  Peanut butter has protein.  And bananas have potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, manganese and fiber.  Can’t wait to try some other similar recipes like cherry almond ice cream or strawberry banana ice cream!

    I’m so happy you enjoyed my recipe enough to share it. But I was wondering if you would mind reading my copyright policy as well.
