After the huge success of my last vegan ice cream recipe, and with the stifling heat this summer, I decided it was high time for another ice cream recipe. This time a little simpler. And so this vegan chocolate peanut butter ice cream is born. This ice cream is perfectly creamy with delicious chunks of frozen peanut butter.
Oh but my vegan chocolate peanut butter ice cream has a secret. Its creamy consistency doesn’t only stem from the coconut milk, but from the magical addition of…….(drum roll please)…… AVOCADO! Just 1/2 an avocado ups the fat content (healthy fats, of course, no animal proteins here!) enough to create a creamy and delicious vegan ice cream with no added thickeners.
I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of avocado in desserts. I’ve definitely made some questionable tasting avocado puddings in my day. Not this vegan chocolate peanut butter ice cream though. This ice cream is perfect because it contains just 1/2 of an avocado, which adds the perfect subtle undertones, healthy benefits, and creaminess without disrupting the flavor.
