Ice cream is a year round treat for our family so I am always coming up with new flavors and ways to make homemade dairy free versions. Although we sometimes buy vegan ice cream at the store, its quite pricey and not always all that good! And if I’m spending good money on it, it needs to be delicious. So when my friend Kate from Catching Up With Kate asked if I had a recipe that she could share on her blog, I thought why not a new ice cream! I love that I can surprise others with how good dairy free ice cream can taste. I know so many people think we are deprived from many of life’s greatest foods by choosing to stay away from dairy as much as we can, but ice cream is definitely not one of those! I could create and eat it every day, which thank goodness I don’t, lol. But I never turn away an opportunity to share my ice cream ideas with others!
This rich smooth concoction is a nut based dairy free version of my favorite flavors combined, chocolate and peanut butter. I avoided all refined sugars so it’s sweetened with my usually go-to dates and maple syrup. Cacao powder gives it a rich chocolaty taste and the smooth creamy peanut butter really puts it over the top! This was a huge hit with my kids and I know you’ll love it to. So head on over to my friend Kate’s blog for the recipe, and I bet you’ll find some other great things for your family too. She runs a fantastic family and travel blog and if you are a fan of Disney, trust me you won’t want to miss it!
