Peanut Butter Nice Cream Sandwiches

Summer is always busy for me….working, driving the kids, getting together with friends and relatives, etc. But it seems like everything I do revolve around food or desserts…..snacks, lunches, picnics, BBQ’s. Making something that are easy and healthy would be great when I am running a tight schedule. These Peanut Butter Nice Cream Sandwiches are super simple and most of us probably have all the ingredients at home already. Nice cream is a much healthier alternative to ice cream using frozen bananas. I added peanut butter, but there are many variations you can do, like cocoa powder, chocolate chips, berries, nuts, etc. You can also use other cookies or crackers for the sandwiches. Don’t think that you have to compromise on taste by making a healthier dessert because they are really really yummy ! They didn’t last long at all in my house !

Makes 12 sandwiches  

  • 4 ripe bananas 
  • 100 g smooth peanut butter 
  • 30 mL milk (or you can use almond or coconut milk) 
  • 24 squares graham crackers 
  • 60 g melted chocolate for drizzling (optional)
  1. Peel and cut banana into small pieces 
  2. Freeze for 3-4 hours or overnight 
  3. Lay half of the graham crackers on a square or rectangular pan lined with parchment paper 
  4. In a food processor or blender, blend together frozen bananas, peanut butter and milk until smooth 
  5. Spoon on top of graham crackers in pan, smooth evenly with a spatula 
  6. Arrange the other graham crackers on top
  7. Freeze until set 
  8. Cut into squares and top with melted chocolate or other toppings as desired

    I would definately try this. The combination of ripe banana and peanut butter already had me interested. Blending this with tge milk would make it ultra smooth and velvety which is a must in a mice cream sandwich. The chocolate drizzle and graham cracker just seal the deal. Awesome job on this one and perfect for this summer season.
    Well Done!

    I’ve made banana nice cream a few times and always enjoyed it, but I’m WAY more into the idea of dressing it up a bit like this. Plus ice cream sandwiches are possibly my favourite cold treat, so I’m doubly interested in this idea. Oh and I love peanut butter… so… triple interested! Haha 🙂
    Great job, great recipe, and awesome chocolate drizzle on the top too! Cheers.
