This Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Banana Ice Cream is another name for heaven. It’s naturally sweet, chocolatley, crunchy, salty and nutty all at the same time and takes banana ice cream to the next level. What more could you want?

I love ice cream………..

No joke, when I was younger, I would have a huge bowl every night after gymnastics practice, at least 342432 2 cups!

You know what else I love? Banana Ice Cream. Bananas are naturally sweet and delicious, and when partially frozen, make the perfect texture for a soft-serve-like texture! My favorite ice cream ever is a tie between Chocolate-Covered Pretzel and Peanut Butter Cup.

So guess what I did? I combined banana ice cream with my two favorite ice cream flavors, and the result is absolutely magical. This Chocolate PB Pretzel banana Ice Cream is absolutely creamy, sweet, salty, crunchy, chocolatey and life changing all at the same time! Not to mention it has only a few ingredients and  it’s a breeze to make!
