No, you do not need an ice cream maker for this recipe. Everything is combined with a hand mixer and no special gadgets required.

The ice cream mixture is poured into a loaf pan and frozen. It is that simple.

How to make Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

  • Step 1. Beat the heavy cream. Use an electric hand mixer to whip the heavy cream to soft peaks in a large mixing bowl. This should take about 5 minutes depending on the speed of your hand mixer.
  • Step 2. Combine the sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter. Once the cream begins to form soft peaks, add the sweetened condensed milk, and peanut butter. Mix again for an additional minute, or until the peanut butter is completely incorporated into the whipped cream and no clumps remain.
  • Step 3. Add the bananas and peanuts. Gently fold in the diced bananas and chopped peanuts until they are evenly distributed throughout the ice cream mixture.
  • Step 4. Pour into a pan. Pour the mixture into a 9×5 inch loaf pan, top it with some extra banana slices chopped peanuts, and allow it to chill in the freezer for 5 hours or until the center of the ice cream is completely frozen

How long will homemade ice cream last?

Homemade ice cream last about a month if it is stored inside an airtight container. I also like to cover with plastic wrap. You can also place a layer of parchment paper on the ice cream to help prevent ice crystals from forming.

We recommend eating this ice cream within a month or ice crystals and a grainy texture may develop.

Banana peanut butter ice cream tips

  • Ripe bananas. While it is not completely necessary to use ripe bananas in this recipe, they will be sweeter and give you more banana flavor.
  • Combine well. It is important to make sure the peanut butter is fully incorporated into the whipped cream. If you have any hidden pockets of peanut butter, they will freeze hard, and it will be quite difficult to scoop.
  • Toppings. This ice cream is great topped with some chocolate syrup and chopped peanuts.
  • Baking Sheet. If you do not have a loaf pan, you can freeze the mixture using a sheet pan.
  • Freeze. The mixture needs to freeze for at least 5 hours but we normally freezer overnight. This ensure the ice cream is the right texture and consistency.

Recipe Variations

  • Chocolate. If you want to add some chocolate flavor to this ice cream, you can scatter ½ cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips throughout the ice cream mixture. Then drizzle a little bit of chocolate syrup on top of the mixture before you place it in the freezer.
  • Nuts. We used chopped peanuts but walnuts or almonds taste great too.
  • Frozen banana. If you do not want the chunks of bananas, freeze bananas and puree with a powerful blender or food processor.
  • Dairy Free. Blend frozen bananas and peanut butter until it’s nice and creamy. Freeze until is like soft serve. This is a tasty and easy dairy free and gluten free option often called nice cream.
