Before college, the combination of banana with peanut butter was unfathomable to me. However, during my Freshman year, that all changed. Bites of ripe banana interspersed with smooth, creamy peanut butter soon became my snack of choice. As a mix of protein and sugar that could store well unrefrigerated, it was this busy college student’s perfect midnight study break snack.
Years later, one ingredient banana ice cream is now a staple in my home. I love that I can get the sweet, frozen creaminess of ice cream with a single natural ingredient, the humble banana.
Even peanut butter frequently shows up in my cooking, but rarely in the now-classic combination of peanut butter and banana.
So, today, I want to throw it back to my college days with an indulgent twist—a Peanut Butter + Banana Ice Cream Sandwich!
