4-Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Nibblers

You're craving ice cream, but after a cardio-sweating, kale-smoothie-drinking, salad-eating, walking-to-work-instead-of-driving kind of day, you don't want to undo all your good work by downing half a pint of Ben & Jerry's (even though it's exactly what you crave!). You need something sweet that tastes like ice cream but is healthy. Grab a banana and make these frozen nibblers.
