Chocolate PB Banana Ice Cream Bites

I think you can take a guess as to how this story starts out. Bananas. So many ripe bananas! So I took to my Pinterest page (where I have vegan breakfast, lunch/dinner, dessert, and snack/beverage pins GALORE! Even Instant Pot recipe pins!) to find something that could help use up these bananas. Something that preferably wasn’t muffins or bread. I make enough of those as it is. So I found these on One Green Planet! They’re super easy and really yummy. And they last in the freezer for quite a while! So I don’t have to worry about eating them all right away. Haha.

Yummy, right? And you can play around with mix-ins. You can add oats, puffed rice, dried fruit, chocolate chips… It all depends on what you want. The possibilities are endless. So experiment with these and let me know what you try. I’m always looking for different ways to make fun treats! 🙂
