PEANUT BUTTER PRETZEL NICE CREAM 

Recipe by BeginWithinNutrition

Yields 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 frozen bananas, peeled and sliced (used ripe bananas)
  • 2 Tbsp. all-natural, organic peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • ¼ tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1-2 Tbsp. nondairy milk
  • ¼ cup pretzels, roughly chopped/crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup, optional

Directions:

  • In a high-powered blender, combine frozen bananas, peanut or almond butter, maple syrup (if using), vanilla extract and nondairy milk. Blend and scrape the sides down until the nice cream is smooth.
  • Remove contents from the blender, fold in crushed pretzels and store in the freezer for ~10 minutes.
  • Scoop, top with extra goodies and enjoy!

Notes:

  • If you’re allergic to peanut butter (you know who you are), use almond butter instead!
  • For a more indulgent nice cream, top with chocolate chips (try Enjoy Life), cacao nibs, crushed almonds, or peanuts.
  • Use ripe bananas (with brown spots not he peel) and this “nice” cream will be plenty sweet – no maple syrup needed.
  • Depending on the type of blender used, you may need to add more nondairy milk to reach your desired consistency.

Happy Saturday!
