Peanut Butter Lover’s Ice Cream
Serves 4

My husband and I are HUGE peanut butter fans, so naturally this recipe is a favorite at our house! When he found out that I was making this today, he made a mental note of the exact time and penciled a ?mid-day ice cream date? into his busy list of to-dos! I hope this becomes one of your family favorites as well!

What you will need:
1 cup cottage cheese (I used Daisy brand 2%, fat-free will work too)
2 Tbsp all natural peanut butter
2 Tbsp PB2 powder
? cup unsweetened almond milk, divided
1 frozen banana
? cup vanilla protein powder (optional for flavor)
6 ice cubes
Dark chocolate chips (optional)
Stevia, to taste
1 ice cube tray
High-powered blender

How you make it:
1. Blend cottage cheese, peanut butter, PB2, and about a tablespoon of almond milk together.

2. Pour thick mixture into an ice cube tray. It should fill about 12 cubes.

3. Freeze 4 hours or more.

4. Place frozen cubes, frozen banana, remaining 11 tablespoons of almond milk, protein powder and ice cubes in blender. Blend until smooth. Blend in some stevia if needed for sweetness. Makes 4 servings. Top each serving with a sprinkle of dark chocolate if your heart desires :).

What?s in each of the 4 servings:
About 155 calories; 6.5g fat; 12g carbs; 14g protein

  1. THANK YOU!! i just made this….i don’t know if i can split into 4 portions its that good!!!! amazing!

  2. Pb2 is at walmart I know. It is dried pb powder you mix with water. This recipe looks awesome, I have lost 16lbs and 16+ inches since 1/14 and this looks delish without the guilt!

  3. Heidi,
    I’ve been on the program for 9 weeks, I’ve lost 5 lbs and 7 in. I’m discouraged at the slow weight loss. I’m just curious, what cycle do u follow , do u eat 1200 cal on low carb days and 1500 cal on high card days. Ur so thin, I want to know your secret?


  4. Love the recipe and idea, but I would leave out the PB2 as it is a GMO product. It is not part of the clean eating life (in my opinion).

  5. I am allergic to bananas and a lot of healthy recipes such as this one call for them. Is there anything I can use as a sub for bananas that will not mess up the texture and sweetness of the recipe?

  6. This sounds delicious! Would non-fat greek yogurt be a suitable replacement for the cottage cheese?

  7. This sounds so good. Im so picky when it comes ti cottage cheese. Would i be able to substitute the cottage cheese for greek yogurt?

  8. I usually order it on, but you can also find it at Walmart, Harmon’s or any health food store:).

  9. Wow, this is what I need. A good change that no one will know that I did. Thanks!! Now I really just need to make the change and do it so we are all healthy and lose weight

  10. Hey Jessica Murphy…. I buy mine right at my local grocery store. Right by the Pea it Butter. Or you can order it on Amazon!

  11. Will definitely have to try this yummy recipe! I’m definitely a lover of peanut butter and ice cream! Thanks for sharing!

  12. I’m making this for dessert tonight. I just happen to have all the ingredients! Erika, you inspire me so much! I can’t wait to see you on here again.
