INGREDIENTS

For peanut butter ice cream

  • 3/4 cup (225 g) peanut butter made with the NutraMilk
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) pure maple syrup, room temperature*
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 6 tablespoons (90 mL) full fat coconut cream, room temperature

For chocolate ganache

  • 1/2 cup (90 g) non-dairy chocolate chips or bar, chopped*
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil

For peanut butter

  • 2 cups (275g) peanuts (untoasted, unsalted)
  • pinch salt (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Making the peanut butter
    • Place peanuts in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 2-3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid.
    • If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.
  • Line a small (approximately 4x8-inch) loaf pan or 6-inch cake pan with plastic wrap or parchment paper so the slab will be easy to lift out after freezing.
  • Add all of the filling ingredients (peanut butter, maple syrup, melted oil, coconut milk,) into a the NutraMilk. Process until smooth.

  • Pour the filling into the prepared pan. Place the pan on a flat spot in the freezer and freeze for 4 to 5 hours, until the filling is solid. There’s no need to cover it unless you plan on keeping it in the freezer longer than 8 hours.
  • When the filling is solid, prepare the ganache topping. In a medium pot, combine the chocolate chips, coconut oil. Melt the chips over the lowest heat setting, stirring frequently, until smooth.

  • Remove the filling from the freezer and, gripping the plastic wrap as a handle, lift it out of the pan. Flip the filling onto a large plate and peel off the plastic wrap or take out parchment paper.
  • Pour the ganache over top of the solid filling, starting in the centre, and allow it to cascade down the sides a bit. Return it to the freezer, uncovered, and freeze for about 10 minutes, until the ganache is firm.

  • Slice and garnish with chopped peanuts, chocolate or cacao nibs if you wish- Enjoy immediately. Return leftovers to the freezer right away as the dessert does soften as it sits.
