The Challenge: Peanut Butter Ice Cream
I scream for ice cream! You scream for ice cream! I scream way louder for vegan ice cream that is completely 100% dairy-free + cruelty-free. Yum yum yum!
Today, I present to you Vegan Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Swirl Ice Cream … mic drop.
And guess what - you don’t need any crazy equipment like an ice cream machine to make it or long wait times (unless you aren’t like me and always have like 8-10 frozen bananas around). Plus, its a ridiculously tasty vegan ice cream that you can easily make and tastes amazing!
Vegan ice cream has come a long way over the past decade and now has its own sections in the frozen food aisle, but its definitely something is still a blast to make at home…and the best part (hint hint … this is a 2-part recipe) this dish is perfect for an ice cream sandwich.
The key to this ice cream is creating a dark chocolate swirl. How we do that is through melting dairy-free dark chocolate (FYI - cocoa butter is not dairy) and swirling in a pan with the ice cream. When you scoop it out…the swirl mixes in! Its that easy and its amazingly yummmmmm.
Alright homie friends, let’s make some dope ice cream and put it in a waffle cone and celebrate being vegan!
