Homemade ice cream loaded with peanut butter, banana and honey is like Elvis’s dream come true. It’s smooth, creamy and oh so good.
The flavor combination of peanut butter, honey and bananas is a classic for good reason. It’s that sweet, salty depth of flavor that draws you in.
Making it into homemade ice cream makes it extra delicious. It will be a fun addition to your homemade ice cream rotation.
MiMi originally created and shared this recipe back in 2015. She was on an ice cream making kick.
Each week we would touch base and she would ask what dessert I was bringing to family dinner. Then she would take those flavors and create a complimentary ice cream or sorbet.
MiMi made this recipe to go along with it nicely. But don’t worry if you aren’t in the mood to bake a cake, this ice cream can definitely stand on its own.
Even better, do what we did on this particular time and top it with banana slices and homemade peanut butter magic shell. It’s the perfect way to really drive home the key flavors.
It would also be amazing with a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of chopped peanuts or crisp bacon, or some chocolate magic shell. The possibilities really are endless.

Favorite ice cream makers
MiMi has a couple kitchenaid ice cream maker attachments for her stand mixer. She loves them and makes all of her ice cream with them.
I recently got a Cuisinart ice cream maker. You freeze the bowl ahead of using it much like the Kitchenaid attachment.
Both work great and are relatively affordable. You just have to remember to get the bowl in the freezer in plenty of time to get it cold, but that is a whole lot better than making sure you have enough ice and salt on hand!
Great Ice Cream Storage Options
My mom loves the Tovolo Glide-A-Scoop containers that fit in the freezer well, stack easily and store nicely. She already has a couple and is getting ready to order more.
I got fun quart sized containers that are reusable and dishwasher safe that I like as well. No matter how it’s stored, ice cream tends to disappear quickly around here!
