Peanut Butter Cup Ice-Cream

Make our peanut butter ice cream with homemade peanut butter cups. They’re delicious!

Ingredients:

2 heaped tsp Arrowroot Powder
250 ml Almond Milk
3 tbsp Hi-PRO Smooth Peanut Butter
30g Medjool Dates
1 tsp Vanilla Bean Extract
100g Fat Free Greek Yogurt
60g No Sugar Added or Diabetic Dark Chocolate
1 tbsp Stevia (or Sweetener of Choice)

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Method:

  1. Place ½ a tablespoon of HI-Pro Smooth Peanut Butter in to each of a couple of muffin cases.
  2. Melt the No Added Sugar Dark Chocolate in the microwave, slowly for 20 seconds at a time, until the Chocolate is smooth and without any lumps.
  3. Spoon the melted chocolate in to the muffin cases, over the peanut butter.
  4. Place the muffin cases in the fridge for at least 30 minutes until the Peanut Butter Cups are set. Complete step 5 while this is happening.
  5. On a medium heat whisk together the Almond Milk, Vanilla Bean Extract, and Stevia (or sweetener of choice), until the mixture just coats the back of a spoon, or resembles a thin custard-like texture. Be careful not to burn the mixture.
  6. Take the mixture off the heat and set aside to cool fully. You can also place this in the fridge/freezer to speed the cooling process a little.
  7. In a blender, blend together until smooth; the cooled custard-like mixture, 2 tablespoons of Peanut Butter, 100g Greek Yogurt and 30g Medjool Dates. The Medjool Dates give the ice-cream a caramelised taste, and act as a natural sweetener.
  8. Place the mixture in to a freezer-friendly container, able to hold about 1 litre of liquid.
  9. Take the Peanut Butter Cups out of the fridge and roughly chop, placing them in to the ice cream liquid.
  10. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours, with a top on the container or Clingfilm.
  11. The Ice Cream is best served when left out of the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
  12. Enjoy…
