I’m glad I’m not a monkey. I could live on bananas, but without peanut butter what’s the point? I have no doubt that a monkey could open a jar of peanut butter but he certainly couldn’t make it. The only option available to the monkey would be to befriend a human. But even if the monkey found a human companion, he would have to deal with an inter-species language barrier and would need to communicate his desire for peanut butter with only “oohs” and “ahhs”. Plus, monkeys eat a lot of bananas which would require a lot of peanut butter and I doubt the human he finds is a millionaire; The human would eventually want compensation – but monkeys don’t have cash or credit, only fleas and feces. No, I don’t want to be a monkey at all. But enjoy my Monkey Sundae.


3/4 cup ice cream (Mint Cookies and Cream is a winner)
2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1 Tbsp peanuts
2 tsp dark chocolate chips
1/3 banana, in slices
3 mini pretzels, broken up (optional)


1. Place ice cream in a bowl. If peanut butter is very creamy, drizzle on top of ice cream – otherwise, microwave the peanut butter in a small dish for 10 seconds before drizzling on top. Throw on the peanuts, chocolate chips and pretzels, then top with banana slices. Place the bowl in the freezer for 5 minutes, then consume.

    I forgot how much I love the combination of pretzels and peanut butter. and the salt with the ice cream makes it sound even better. Oh yes, I totally have a salty tooth

      I can no longer eat pretzels without a jar of peanut butter to dip them into. The best are those long thin rods! I’m with ya, salt-tooth all the way!

      Haha, well comeon, the toppings are fairly healthy and if you just use a little bit ice cream, it’s only a few pinches of extra sugar =)

    Here’s a treat if you are ever in Michigan. Ray’s Ice Cream (a local legend) makes an ice cream called Fat Elvis. Peanut butter and banana and it is delish!

    Now I feel so sorry for monkeys but really, if we keep quiet about the joys of peanut butter, they’ll never know what they’re missing.
    Love the sundae. During this hot spell we’re having it sure does look inviting.

    a definite downside to living in a house without ice cream is that I miss this combination tremendously!!!

    why can’t dairy queen have such awesome taste combinations?

    Different ice cream, but the one you made me mother’s day weekend was delicious. I love your commentary about not being a monkey.

  9. Chuck says:

    That looks like an awesome combination! I think the pretzels are the clutch ingredient. I can’t wait to make it!

    Does mint and pb go together okay? Either way, your post cracked me up about monkeys and I totally agree–can’t have a banana without pb and I need one at least once a day.
