I do love a big bowl of ice cream after my dinner, dairy free of course! I’ve been a bit lazy when it comes to making my own ice cream, the first recipe I made dairy free was for banana ice cream and I enjoyed it so much I’ve kind of just stuck with making that. Recently I’ve been feeling inspired to branch out and try new flavours. The first of my new dairy and gluten free ice cream recipes features my favourite flavour combination – peanut butter and chocolate.

You can use either smooth or crunchy peanut butter, I used the crunchy one as I liked the tiny bits of peanut through the ice cream. I’ll work on a few more dairy and gluten free ice-cream recipes but if you are after a specific flavour please let me know.
