peanut butter pretzel ice cream ~vegan, gluten free~

I have Noah to thank for this delicious creation!

I had something different in mind, but Noah wanted to add pretzels to the mix, so I went with it!

This version of “nice cream” consists of bananas, peanut butter, maple syrup and crushed pretzels.  The combination of sweet and salty is pure bliss!

I used a vitamix, but any high-speed blender will do.  Slice the bananas into small chunks before freezing to make blending easier.  I also added a tablespoon of soy milk to get the mix going!  After it was whipped together I folded in crushed gluten-free pretzels and popped it in the freezer just for a few minutes to set.   I learned the hard way, don’t try cutting pretzels…they will fly everywhere and make a huge mess!  Instead, place in a zip-lock bag and bang with something heavy such as a potato masher or a can of soup (i’m sure there is a more professional way of doing this, but it worked for me!).
