Banana Pudding Ice Cream with Fudge Swirls

I have a husband who is obsessed with all things Banana, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate. I am always looking for ways to incorporate his favorite flavor trifecta in treats for him. Ice cream is one of his favorite desserts of all time, so this easy, no machine required Banana Pudding Homemade Ice Cream with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge Swirls was perfect!

Banana Pudding Ice Cream with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge Swirls

If you’ve never made this easy, two-ingredient ice cream, you must absolutely put it on your must-make list before summer ends! :) Here’s how I jazzed it up with banana, peanut butter, and chocolate.

Banana Pudding Ice Cream with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge Swirls

Heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk are the two main players in this recipe, then you can add whatever flavors and toppings you want to create your perfect ice cream. I added bananas, banana pudding, peanut butter, hot fudge, and mini Nilla wafers to make Banana Pudding Ice Cream.

Banana Pudding Ice Cream Recipe

Just start with sweetened condensed milk, and add it to a large bowl, big enough for all your toppings! :)

Add some banana cream jello… Thanks to my lovely assistant and hand model hubby here! He was really excited about this homemade ice cream. :)

Whisk the instant pudding into the sweetened condensed milk until dissolved. I thought I could do this with a spatula. Hahahaha. Um, no. You might even want to use a KitchenAid or mixer here! I made Kevin take over. :)

Next add in some sliced bananas, for texture. Everything’s totally optional here. You can add whatever you want! :)

Some crushed mini Nilla wafers. So addicted to these darn cookies!

Now with a mixer, whip your very cold heavy cream until it looks like whipped cream. Then fold it into the sweetened condensed milk mixture.

Now before all this started, I placed a bowl with 1/2 cup peanut butter in the freezer to harden. Kevin specified that he wanted this ice cream to just have swirls of peanut butter, not be completely peanut butter flavored. ;)

So just pinch off teaspoon-size dollops of peanut butter and fold them into the ice cream for perfect peanut butter swirls. Next do the same with the room temperature hot fudge topping for dreamy fudge swirls.

    I made this today (minus the peanut butter) and I’m anxiously waiting for tomorrow morning so I can finally try it! It’ll be my breakfast!

  2. Veronica M.

    Can’t wait to try this. Yum! I think this would be good with Biscoff spread instead of peanut butter. Love the tip of freezing the peanut butter and hot fudge before hand so it would swirl into ice cream.

  3. Mara @ Super Savings

    Ooh, just one flavor is tough! Usually something along the lines of Oreo/Butterfinger/Reese’s/Fudge…… =) This banana/PB/fudge combo looks amazing though! Definitely “pinned” and will try!

  4. Amrita

    I share your husband’s obsession of banana, peanut butter and chocolate!

    Has he tried the Ben and Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt yet?? There is a peanut butter banana flavor!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Susie Swedowski

    Looks delish! Definitely going to try this, but will drop the chocolate and add caramel. Thanks for the great recipe!

  8. Marie

  9. Rosalie

    My favorite is chocolate with caramel and peanut butter swirl and crushed up sugar cone pieces!! hungry just thinking about it!!

  10. Amanda S

  11. Amy

    I’m going to recreate the “Monkey Business” ice cream Publix had last year (but doesn’t have this year). Banana ice cream with fudge swirls and chocolate covered peanuts. Yum!

  12. shawn

    my standard favorite was anything with chocolate or oreos but then my husband introduced me to dark chocolate and bing cherries. wow. thanks for the recipe, now i can make any flavor without needing an ice cream maker.

  13. Melissa Edwards

    I like tropical blends of ice cream. Pineapple with nuts, coconut, bananas and some hot fudge swirled in. Yummmmm!

  14. Tonya D

    My favorite flavor would have brownie bits and hot fudge and caramel in a butter pecan ice cream. Mmmm

    Thanks for the many great recipes!

  15. Regina

    Who knew making ice cream was so easy…i wonder if you could do the same with chocolate pudding? Might have to give that a try – chocolate peanut butter ice cream!

  16. Cynde

    I love Peanut butter Ice Cream with choclate swirls and peanut butter cups. Yum! My favorite. Thanks for the chance at the drawing for all the goodies. It has all my favorites thrown in there, well the tastes will all be in there anyway!

  17. Taylor

    That looks amazing. My hubby is also obsessed with peanut butter and banana, so I’ll have to try this for him!

    My perfect flavor would have to be chocolate hazelnut. I’m nothing if not a chocoholic, and adding the hazelnut flavor gives everything an extra kick that just can’t be beat!

  18. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

    My perfect flavor combo is peanut butter and chocolate. I cannot get enough of it! Although most recently I’ve come to enjoy mixing funfetti cake batter and peanut butter.

  19. amanda kay tea

    My fave flavor combos are chocolate, peanut butter & vanilla …mmmm mmm. i am making that ice cream dessert this weekend for sure!!!

  20. Becky Johnson

    We make your no machine ice cream all the time. I loooove oreos, chocolate syrup (to make it choc ice cream), and some hard shell to make fudge swirl. But recently we tried some without the sweetened condensed milk and subbed honey instead for a more natural sweetener – soooo good.

  21. Jo Anna Grimsley

    What a terrific giveaway; thanks for the opportunity to win. I’m with your hubby–you can’t beat pb and chocolate; will have to try the banana too!

  22. Penny

    This sounds so yummy! My favorite is Vanilla ice cream, caramel and pralines. Although After I try this recipe It may be Bananna Pudding LOL!

    I can’t wait to try your flavor combo…one of my favorite ice cream combo is cake batter and choc. frosting OMG!!!! Great giveaway, thanks!!!!

  24. Betsy Pratt

    Hi Amanda,
    I had no idea that you could make ice cream without a machine! That is such DANGEROUS information! ;) My fave dessert flavors are salted caramel and peanut butter. I just adore peanut butter anything. Keep these great recipes coming. You always have the best ones, including those cupcakes with the frozen brownie batter in the middle.

    Today is the first time I view this site, and I am already starving after so many mouth-watering recipes… can’t wait to try them! I think my husband-to-be will be a more than willing guinea pig ;) Ice cream happens to be his favorite dessert, so I will definitely be trying this!
    As for my favorite flavor combination, it’s hard to imagine something better than the combination you already have. Delish!

  26. Annette W.

    This flavor blows my mind. I am a banana and peanut butter lover too! Banana and anything rocks my world. One of my favorite combos for ice cream is banana and Oreo’s. Another favorite is Lemon and cherries or strawberries with white chocolate or cheesecake chunks.

  27. Diane

    I love Vanilla Ice cream with hot fudge and a warm peanut butter and caramel drizzle and whipped topping and I love it when it’s just about to melt:)
    Fun give-away!

  28. crystal maruszak

    My goodness this sounds AMAZING as is! I would give it whirl as you have it, or maybe try one of my fave puddings, pistachio, with waffle cone bits and salted pistachios!

  29. Susan Kay

    Have made this recipe over and over again – just can’t get enough of it at our house. Thanks for sharing it. Our favorite is chocolate and peanut butter. We’ll have to add cookies, pudding, and bananas next time.

  32. terry tougas

    This sounds absolutely yummy! I am definitely going to try~ love banana pudding and nilla wafers. Peanut butter and chocolate and maybe some heath bar tossed in!

  33. Denise G

    I like regular old vanilla, but with lots of “stuff” in it :) Big Oreo chunks and anything cake-batter/sprinkle-related are my fav! And marshmallows– the little crunchy ones like in cereal.

  34. Denise Kasbohm

    My favorite combo would be Peanut Butter and Chocolate…..But I am thinking this Peanut Butter and Banana might win!! :o)

  35. Deea @ Sprinkle Some Sunshine

    I just had it this morning & it’s my new favorite! Coconut almond with chocolate swirls…mmmmm!

  43. Ashley

    I’m with your husband Kevin there is nothing better than Banana Pudding and I’m with you Amanda, I am addicted to Nilla Wafers no matter what size and just so I have enough of them when I get around to making a Banana Pudding I buy two boxes at a time! I am going to make this ice cream today!!!!!!! Oh how it made my mouth water just reading about it! Thank you for sharing.

  44. Olivia Williams

    My perfect flavor combo is probably peanut butter and chocolate, but give me anything sweet and I’m good to go – no need to discriminate! :)

  45. Alyssa M

    Love your ice cream creations! I’m not a huge chocolate fan, so the sweet and tangy combination of raspberries and lemons are keeping my taste buds satisfied :)

  46. April was in CT now CA

    Lately, chocolate and Biscoff! This ice cream would be awesome with Biscoff in it. Can’t wait to try it.

I am going to the store today to get the stuff. I made white chocolate ice cream, crushed frozen raspberries and smuckers hot fudge and layered it. Yum yum.

  49. Amy Doninger

    Banana Ice Cream is amazing….and I love it with chocolate and peanut butter, just like your husband. Can’t wait to make this!

  50. Brandy

    My husband and I are like your husband! We love peanut butter but prefer it to have strips of thick peanut butter or bites. When you posted that last ice cream recipe, I actually made a chocolate/peanut butter swirl by taking peanut butter and freezing it in strips on wax paper and then pushing it into the ice cream just before I put it in the freezer to freeze. It was incredible.

  51. Mia Ferreira

    This is a hard one to answer but my newest favorite flavor is Green Tea. I say Green Tea with pistachios and mild chocolate swirls :)

  52. wendy

    This looks amazing!!! So nice and easy. With the items that you already have in the pantry. Can’t wait to try this. Thanks:)

    My perfect flavor combo is chocolate and peanut butter. Or chocolate and raspberry. Or chocolate and …well, you get the idea. ;) I’m all about the chocolate.

  58. Emily

    I love peanut butter and chocolate, but my husband and I discovered the combo of marshmallow and caramel in a concrete from Culvers!

  59. Ellen

  62. Kimberly

    I’d have to say anything with heath bar & coffee. My favorite combo EVER! Or strawberry cheesecake ice cream with graham cracker chunks… Mmm.

  63. Kate W.

  67. Evil Pixie

    For me, it is a toss-up between two combinations: Chocolate, peanut butter, and banana OR chocolate, caramel, and pecans. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
