Is it ice cream weather where you are? Bahaha. Ok, it’s always ice cream weather — at least it is over here — snow or shine. But today has been exceptionally hot, which prompted me to share one of our favorites around here: this simple and wholesome, fruit-sweetened, no churn, dairy-free peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream.

Today has been an unusually hot day, which I normally love very much. I soak up all the heat and sunshine with relish whenever the rare opportunity presents itself; in fact I crave heat — even when everyone around me appears to be withering and melting away… Getting into a parked car in the sun on a hot day is one of my favorite things! But today I reached my limit.

I think you may officially be a bake-a-holic when you’ve got the oven running through a 100+ degree heatwave. I didn’t look at a thermostat to gaugue the temperature, but I’m pretty sure by the time I was done the air in the house was probably half-way to boiling point. I may or may not have half-baked my dogs and husband in the process. I just had a crazy recipe idea that I had to make and it had to happen — heat wave or not…

Thank goodness for ice cream! Luckily I had several batches in the freezer to keep me cool. So I thought to share this chocoaltey peanut-buttery nicecream recipe with you too — so we can all keep cool and continue soaking in the sun :)

I love this recipe mostly because, well, can’t beat chocolate and peanut butter. There’s a reason it’s a classic ♥ Almost too conventional for this blog though maybe :D . But the making of has nothing in common with conventional ice cream — except for the great taste and creaminess of course ;) . This ice cream doesn’t require an ice cream maker, no cooking, no dairy, sugar, cream, etc. Not even coconut or bananas! Just a handful of simple ingredients you probably already have on hand and you’re set!

I normally use chocolate chunks, but used chocolate chips for this instead this time around. Feel free to substitute with a chopped up version of your favorite chocolate bar. Up the add-ins to your liking. Or better yet, play around with the flavors — throw in some raspberries at the very end instead of chocolate chips or just swirl in some jam to have a pb & jam ice cream. Or maybe just add some cinnamon and make it a cinnamony peanut butter ice cream… Or some caramelized peanuts… Or go far out and make it peanut butter and potato chips or maybe pickles… OK, maybe that’s going too far ;) But you get the point.

P.S. You can easily raw-ify this by making your own peanut butter from scratch first, then adding remaining ingredients, and using a raw chocolate bar…

No Churn Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


  • Author: Audrey @ Unconventional Baker
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 6-7 small servings

Description

A fruit-sweetened vegan peanut butter ice cream loaded with peanuts and chocolate chips. Optional chocolate drizzle. No churning required.


Ingredients

  • 1½ cups non-dairy milk {I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk}
  • 1 cup soft dates {pitted}
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter {preferably organic}
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Add-Ins:

  • ½ cup peanuts {raw or roasted, not salted — unless you like salty ;) }
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • + extra for sprinkling {optional}
  • + a bit of melted chocolate chips for drizzling

Instructions

  1. Place all ice cream ingredients in a blender and blend until the mixture is smooth and uniform {a power blender would work best — I used my Vitamix — but a regular blender will work too, just keep at it patiently until the mixture is very smooth}. Throw in the add-ins and pulse a few times to mix them through.
  2. Pour ice cream into a freezer-safe container {I just used a glass bowl for this one}. Sprinkle with extra toppings if you like. Cover and place in the freezer to firm up overnight {or at least 5-6 hours}.
  3. Allow ice cream to thaw out on the counter for a little prior to scooping {or divide into individual portions like this to begin with if you prefer}. Drizzle with some melted chocolate if you like and enjoy!
