5-ingredient Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Ice Cream Bars

These ice cream bars are a vegan, real-food treat that’s easy to make! 5 simple ingredients are all you need to make these chocolate-covered peanut butter ice cream bars and your family will have no idea how healthy they are!




  1. In a food processor, process the frozen bananas until creamy.  This will take a few minutes; it should be the consistency of soft serve ice cream.  Add the peanut butter and process again until well combined.
  2. Transfer the mixture to an ice cube tray, smoothing the tops with your fingers or the back of a spoon.  Add one popsicle stick per cube. Freeze until rock solid, at least a few hours.
  3. When your banana ice cream is ready, melt the coconut oil in a liquid measuring cup.  Add the cocoa powder and maple syrup and whisk well.
  4. Put a piece of wax paper or parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  5. Use a knife to cut around the edge of one of the frozen cubes, then pop it out of the tray.  Dip the cube into the chocolate, then lay it on the tray.  Continue until all the cubes have been coated in chocolate.
  6. The banana ice cream softens quickly.  If you don’t work quickly enough, it may soften and not pop out of the tray nicely.  Simply pop the tray back into the freezer for a few minutes and then continue once the ice cream is hard again.  
  7. Once all the cubes are coated with chocolate, place the tray into the freezer until the chocolate is completely hardened.  You may then transfer the cubes into a freezer-safe container or ziplock freezer back for storage.  Enjoy!
