Fitness Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice-Cream FI

A soft and creamy, protein-rich ice-cream that will treat the most discerning taste buds, without adding unwanted sugar and potential allergens like dairy to your diet.


  • 4 bananas, frozen
  • 4 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 scoop plant protein, chocolate flavour
  • 100ml almond milk
  • 3 tsp cacao
  • Pinch of salt

Ideal plant protein options include:

  • Brown rice or soy protein (contain a complete near complete amino acid profile).
  • Plant protein blends that contain a mixture of pea, hemp, rice, soy and pumpkin seed proteins.


  • Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender. Process until smooth and mixed well.
  • Pour into a container and place in the freezer until frozen.
  • Scoop and serve in a bowl.

Natural peanut butter: Products made from high quality ground peanuts will have a thin, translucent layer of oil at the top of the tub. Natural peanut butter contains healthy poly- and monounsaturated fats (50%), and is high in protein (25%) and low in carbohydrate (19%) content.

Almond milk is a great calorie-conscious milk alternative – just opt for unsweetened varieties. It also contains a beneficial amount of calcium – 28% of RDA per cup – so you’re not losing out completely on this important mineral by ditching the dairy. Its creamy texture, which is similar to dairy milk, also makes it a popular replacement for use in recipes.
