Luckily for us some genius foodies have created this healthy alternative to dessert that tastes great and satisfies any sweet tooth. I can hear you now... "That's impossible!" But from one ice cream lover to another, I can safely say that it's true.

Behold my favorite version: the Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Banana Soft Serve. The name says it all. Literally.

All you need for this delicious treat are three ingredients: Peanut butter or PB2, Cocoa Powder and Frozen bananas. The second thing you need is either a food processor or a Vitamix for the blending.

There are a lot of variations out there so get creative and see what you like. Try it with chocolate chips, shredded coconut, berries, oats, granola, chia seeds and more.  You can even make it with just bananas for a one-ingredient version. Enjoy!
