Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

I have yet another new coconut ice cream recipe to share with you all today. 🙂 Y’know, when I was writing my coconut e-book I felt like I had come up with ALL the ice cream recipes I could possibly think of. And then some sort of new inspiration struck, because I’ve pumped out so many since then. Not all of them are good, though of course the so-so ones never make it onto the blog. Today’s is a real winner: peanut butter cup ice cream.

Notes on the Recipe

I use my homemade chocolate chips in this ice cream, but you can use any chocolate you prefer. I’ve also chopped up my coconut oil fudge recipe and thrown that in instead of chocolate chips.

You can use any kind of coconut milk you want, but I personally prefer this brand of coconut milk. It’s free of preservatives and any added gums/starches, and comes in a carton rather than a can. In my experience, the BEST place to buy this coconut milk is at your local Asian market. If that’s not an option, though, you can buy it online here.

What if I Don’t Have an Ice Cream Maker?

I get this question from time to time. Honestly my first response is: get an ice cream maker! 🙂 Seriously. If you like coconut ice cream and think you’ll make it regularly, an ice cream maker is 100% a worthwhile investment. We got this model for our wedding in 2008, and it probably made a few hundred batches of ice cream before it finally gave out in 2016.

I replaced it with this newer model, which I’ve been very happy with. My family LOVES ice cream, and since Jesse can’t eat any sweeteners other than honey, homemade ice cream is our only option. (Plus, have you seen the cost of coconut ice cream in the store? That stuff is expensive.)

If I haven’t convinced you, though, here’s a post from The Kitchn on how to make ice cream without a machine. Give some of their ideas a try and see what you think. I haven’t tried any of these methods myself, so I can’t comment on how well they’d work for this particular recipe.

Equipment You’ll Need

  1. Add coconut milk, peanut butter, vanilla, honey and salt to your blender and blend until all ingredients are well mixed.
  2. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker and begin processing.
  3. Once your ice cream looks like it's almost finished, add the chocolate to your ice cream maker. If mixture is already too frozen to properly mix, just stop the ice cream maker and finish mixing in the chocolate by hand.
  4. Serve immediately, or store ice cream in the freezer for a few hours to firm up. Store any leftover ice cream in a wide, shallow container to simplify future defrosting.
  5. By the next day, your stored ice cream will have become very hard in the freezer. Just be sure to plan ahead when you want to eat it—it will probably need 20 or more minutes of defrosting on the counter before it can be easily served.

Coconut ice cream makes an excellent real food dessert. It’s bursting with healthy coconut oil, it’s allergy-friendly, and it can easily accommodate whatever substitutions you might want to make.

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

If I had to call myself an expert in something, I think it would have to be coconut ice cream. Since I stopped eating commercial ice cream 6 or so years ago, I’ve probably made hundreds of batches of coconut ice cream. If you’ve been around the blog for long, you’ve probably seen some these recipes, like cinnamon ice cream, chocolate chip and raspberry coconut ice cream, chocolate mint coconut ice cream, and mint chocolate chip ice cream.  Today I want to share a recipe for one of our new standbys: strawberry chocolate chip ice cream.

I pretty much took the strawberry ice cream recipe from my coconut e-book and added my homemade chocolate chips.…

Chocolate Chip and Raspberry Coconut Ice Cream (Dairy-free, GAPS, Paleo)

If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know that we’re a little (okay a lot) obsessed with coconut ice cream. So, when I say that we have a new favorite ice cream that really means a lot.

What’s our new favorite? Chocolate chip and raspberry coconut ice cream. This ice cream is soooo good! I’ve made raspberry coconut ice cream before, (recipe in my e-book), but this time I decided to leave the raspberries intact rather than blending them up. And then I added chocolate chips, because that usually makes everything better.

If you think raspberries and chocolate make a killer combination, you’ve got to try this ice cream.…
