Is it hot enough out there?! This heatwave does not seem to be abating any time soon but this No Churn Banana and Peanut Butter Frozen Yoghurt will at least help to cool you down in a delicious way. I came across a photo of the recipe on Pinterest and loved the frozen yophurt styled in a can. And after reading the very easy recipe on The Hungry Couple I needed to make it.
It really could not be simpler and all you have to have ready with a bit of planning are the frozen banana chunks. I love the combination of the banana and peanut butter with the tanginess of the yogurt coming through. I added some vanilla extract for depth and added extra peanuts for crunch and texture. As you can imagine it is delicious as a just mixed soft serve and you could eat it immediately. One you have frozen it, remove it from the freezer for about 15 minutes or so before serving as it does freeze very hard.
I have another terrrific yoghurt style recipe on the blog – this Pistachio Labneh Ice Cream is just wonderful and luxurious.
In other news, you can catch me this Wednesday at 4pm doing battle in the kitchen to win the accolade of “You Have a Winning Recipe” (and some really great prizes) on Via TV’s “Jy Het ‘n Wenresep”. Sharing the kitchen with the iconic Carmen Niehaus was a total thrill!
