Remove vanilla ice cream from freezer and place in refrigerator to soften for ten minutes.

Once softened, fold peanut butter in the ice cream in a large mixing bowl.

Then, firm up in freezer for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a frying pan and on medium-high heat fry sliced plantain, two minutes each side or until caramelized.

Plate two to three plantain slices with a generous dollop of peanut butter ice cream.

Garnish with chopped peanuts and a sprig of mint.
