Vegan Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Vegan Peanut Butter Ice Cream

A simple recipe for vegan peanut butter ice cream, using only 4 easily found ingredients, that is creamy and delicious!

So...Michael isn't technically lactose intolerant. But he's definitely having a harder time with large amounts of dairy the older he's getting. So we've been cutting back a bit and subbing in with cashew milk. But he's a bit of an ice cream fanatic. So I decided it was high time I tried to make some dairy free ice cream for him and when I went looking for a simple recipe (with no weird, random, ingredients that a non-vegan person wouldn't normally have) this one jumped out at me! It's got only FOUR ingredients and is nice and straightforward.

Michael also likes chocolate chips or chunks in his ice creams so I added that as an optional mix-in as well! Either way, the ice cream is creamy and flavorful (so peanut buttery) and Michael and I both loved it! I will say, you should leave the ice cream out for a bit after having it in the freezer before serving because it gets REALLY hard in the freezer. Like...unscoopable. But if we can't have patience for ice cream, what can we have patience for?

Vegan Peanut Butter Ice Cream
Makes 1 quart.
  • 2 cups cashew milk (or preferred non-dairy milk)
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • Optional-2 oz. dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • In a medium sized saucepan combine the cashew milk, peanut butter, and brown sugar and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  • Refrigerate mixture until chilled, approximately 2-3 hours. Freeze according to ice cream maker instructions. 
  • During the last bit of the freezing process, add the chocolate chunks (if using).
  • Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. For easier scooping, take out of the freezer at least 15 minutes before serving.

I kind of wish we had just served this soft-serve style straight out of the ice cream maker. It looked so good!
