Summer is officially in full swing and nothing says summer like the ringing of the ice cream truck coming down your block. While a good scoop of Rocky Road definitely won’t hurt anyone, here at The Beauty Bean we try to keep it healthy whenever possible. So, we’ve created our own dairy-free, sugar-free and flavor-packed “ice cream” made of wholesome, healthy ingredients that will make sure summer doesn’t turn you into a Ms. Softie! Plus, it’s creamy, sweet, cold and completely satisfying – so even the non-health conscious among you will be sure to love it.

Mix bananas, peanut butter and almond milk in a blender on very low speed, stopping to stir with a wooden spoon every once in a while. When smooth, remove from blender. Depending on the strength and heat of your blender, you may need to place the mix in a bowl in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Remove, add toppings and serve!
