Just in time for Labor Day some girl friends and I put together our favorite ice cream recipes to share online. Instead of picking my own favorite I choose Elvis’ favorite: Banana, Peanut Butter and Honey Ice Cream. We’ll just call it Elvis Ice Cream. And it literally only has his favorite 3 ingredients in it with no sugar, milk or cream (so it’s dairy-free and low in sugar).
Here are some of the other creations that the rest of the group came up with:

I only with this wasn’t a virtual Ice Cream Social because I want to taste all of these!!
Now back to this 3 Ingredient Ice Cream that I made… I must say this new creation I made is not a flavor combination that only Elvis enjoyed but a blend that I love as well. My grandmother commonly made peanut butter, banana and honey sandwiches. Looking up to her as a child I wanted a sandwich just like hers so, I quickly became a fan of the pb, banana, honey sandwich. And now I must say those flavors do especially well as an ice cream.
I mentioned before that this is a 3 ingredient ice cream and I meant it. I learned recently that you can make ice cream with one ingredient, bananas, and no ice cream machine. I just added a few spoonfuls of peanut butter and a generous squeeze of honey and you get a delicious blend for a creamy, salty-sweet ice cream. I think you’ll like it.
- 5 bananas
- 5 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter
- a generous squeeze of honey
- Puree unfrozen, ripe bananas in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Add peanut butter and blend again. Add in honey to taste.
- Freeze for at least 5 hours and enjoy!
