Recipe commissioned for Natural Balance Foods (Nakd)
Today’s recipe is a little bit unusual coming from me… Because if you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that I have a banana intolerance.
So why on earth am I posting a recipe with banana in it? Well, before I knew bananas were a problem for me, I tried the “nice cream” trend and I loved it. A couple of years ago, I remember making a peanut butter flavour and it was so delicious. It makes me so sad that I can’t eat it anymore!
But teamed with some trust-worthy taste-testers, I recreated the nice cream recipe I made years ago and it was a hit with them. Adding chunks of Nakd’s new Peanut Delight bar transformed it into a real treat.
I’m confident you will love this too.
And if you’re impatient, like me, you can skip the churning part and serve it straight away as a soft-serve ice cream!
Delicious as it is or served as a smoothie bowl base.
Nakd Peanut Cookie Dough Nice Cream
- 2 large ripe bananas
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- 3 Nakd Peanut Delight bars
- optional 2 tbsp cacao nibs
- Peel and chop the bananas. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
- Blend with the peanut butter until smooth.
- Chop the peanut cookie bars into small chunks and stir into the "ice cream".
- (optional) stir in the cacao nibs too.
- Then you can either serve straight away as a "soft serve" ice cream or pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze for another 4 hours or overnight for a scoopable ice cream that you can add to a cone!
This looks seriously amazing! Love how healthy and peanut buttery it is!
Thank you, Laura! I wish I could enjoy it again myself!
How kind are you, sharing a recipe that you can’t indulge in yourself? I bet these flavours are amazing with your coconut milk ice cream too, but bananas do make a great, super quick alternative. We make banana ice cream a lot in our house (I often have it for breakfast!) but I can just imagine how adding Nakd bars or nibbles would take it to a whole new level of deliciousness. Definitely got to give this a whirl. Thanks for sharing x
p.s. Love your video! Did you make it yourself?
Thank you Sharon :-) Yes, I made the video – I’m still a beginner at making videos but would like to start making more once I have more space to make them!

This has my name written all over it! I’m not sure we get Nak’d bars here, but I can think of a very delicious peanut butter Squarebar that would be crazy good mixed into nicecream like this! But I can’t imagine the struggle of making this and not eating it…I hope you had some coconut ice cream stashed nearby or something ;) It looks amazing, and I loved the video too!
The struggle was real, Natalie. I had to have some coconut ice cream straight after to make up for it :D

Such an easy treat! Nakd bars (and nibbles!) are fantastic!
Aren’t they? I always keep a stash of them :-)
