Happy Friday! This is ridic.
Today’s the day we let our peanut butter obsession reign.
Today’s the day we slap My Fitness Pal across the face when it tells us we have 8.7 calories left to consume for the whole rest of the evening, and instead, we pick up a spoon.
Today’s the day we turn healthy ingredients into a healthy ice cream and go into an egoic ice cream coma as we simultaneously pat ourselves on the back for winning all the ice creams.
Today’s the day. Seize that shit.
My long-standing love affair with peanut butter came through with flying colors in this ice cream. I’ve always been a fan major of peanut butter frozen yogurt and ice cream, and since I recently acquired this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, I decided it was time to saddle up my peanut butter love boat and let it set sail.
Fun Fact: The ice cream base is made with full-fat coconut milk, peanut butter, maple syrup and a pinch of salt. No dairy, no egg yolks, no funny business.
Fun Fact #2: I made peanut butter chocolate ganache to swirl into the ice cream for some added harrumph, which pretty much sent my whole mind, body, and soul into a twitch fit as I forced the ganache away from my mouth and in the direction of the ice cream so that this recipe didn’t turn into “Peanut Butter Ice Cream That Would Have Had Peanut Butter-Chocolate Swirl Had I Not Eaten All of It Like the Raging Food Addict I Am.” So there’s that.
You could just stop at the peanut butter ice cream, but whyyyyyyyy?! Why would you do that?
As it turns out, you feel a lot less guilty about eating ice cream in abundance when it’s consumed with a spoon that says, “Let Them Eat Kale.” So there’s also that.
BT Dubs: How cool is that spoon? Megan from Ellie Rose Custom Jewelry hand stamped it and sent it to me along with a bracelet that also says, “Let Them Eat Kale” as a surprise. What a doll, eh?! Love that woman.
Back to the creamage.
You want to rub it on your hands, feet, and hair. I get it. There’s plenty to go around. It’s so rich.
Your ego needs stroking. Make this and feed it to everyone.
