Peanut Butter Ice cream

IMG_4194

Because I am sure everyone is missing ice cream.  This yummy creamy ghar ka bana ice cream is so much healthier for you than commercial ice creams. 

Regular ice creams are a cocktail of cream, sugar, artificial flavours and preservatives all of which are hazardous for your immune system. 

Dairy cream is nothing but concentrated fat, hormones, antibiotics, pus cells and animal protein. 

In this recipe, we use thick coconut milk/bananas instead.

Refined Sugar has been replaced with dates (rich in fibre, iron and other minerals). 

No artificial flavours or nasty preservatives (well, you will not need to preserve this, it is so yummy, it will be polished off as soon as it is made!) 

Add to this wholesome quality protein from peanuts, and you have a winner (a dessert cum health food?).  

Here goes the recipe :- 

INGREDIENTS 

  • 2 cups coconut milk (if not available, sub with 2 ripe bananas)
  • 1/2 cup date paste (use less if adding bananas)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter 
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts, chopped

METHOD

In a medium bowl, combine the coconut milk, date paste, vanilla, peanut butter, and salt.

Freeze mixture for 4-6 hours. 

Remove from the freezer, let it thaw a little and then grind to de-crystalise. Add the roasted peanuts in and pulse once. Do not forget to sprinkle some on top as well. 

Freeze again for 4 hours. Ice cream is ready. Enjoy!
