Not So "Chunky" Monkey Ice Cream

Certain people are just meant for one another- like some couples and best friends. You know, that 'click' sort of feeling. I feel the same way about food. While I have some pretty wild food combo creations (I think everyone does, some are just closet creators...) there are oldie nibbles I grew up eating that I will take to my grave. Peanut butter and banana- match in heaven! Add chocolate and it's a killer of a trio.

I'm not sure where chunky monkey term came from (banana + peanut butter + chocolate combo). I suppose I could google it. Go ahead if you're interested. All that concerns me is how blissful this treat is! I suppose if you eat too much, then you most likely are destined for chunkyness......especially in icecream form. Well I don't monkey around. A recipe redux was a must! My version serves one fit n fabulous monkey!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Frozen Yogurt
  • 3/4 c. (175g) plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp special dark cocoa powder (eg:Hersheys)
  • 2 packs stevia
  • 1/2 medium ripe banana

Throw all of the ingredients in the blender, mixing until smooth.

Pour into a metal bowl and freeze until solid, about 2 to 3 hours depending if you prefer 'soft serve' or old fashioned style ice cream.

Serve with more sliced banana if you wish.
Serves 1. No sharing required. :)
