Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

What a weekend! Irene came and tore up Hoboken – although we are very grateful because it could have been a million times worse. Here are a couple pictures of the damage.

Lots of flooding – but everyone is safe! Since we live on the ground floor we did have a mandatory evacuation so we headed to Adam’s parents for the weekend. Luckily for us we came back to power and just a messy hallway!

Before we left on Friday Adam cooked me dinner! This was the second time he has attempted to cook since we’ve lived together so this is BIG news.

(It’s not burnt – those are blue corn tortilla chips) – Enchilada Casserole was his pick and it was GOOD!ย Besidesย the amount of cheese that was used the recipe was extremely healthy. Greek Yogurt, shredded chicken, veggies, corn tortillas, enchilada sauce and jalepenos were the main ingredients – it had a nice kick and I could tell he was proud himself. I was proud too ๐Ÿ™‚

Before the storm hit we tried to go to Yogurtland because it had just open. Well of course, they closed early.

In the words of Stephanie Tanner, How Rude.

I knew what I had to do as soon as we got home. I had to break out the Ice Cream Maker. I only used a few ingredients

and it turned into this

Peanut Butter + Chocolate = AMAZINGNESS (its a word). Oh did I mention it was dairy free?? No sad belly here!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream ย (dairy free – vegan)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Light Chocolate Silk
  • 1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/3 cup Peanut Butter (I used White Chocolate)
  • 1/3 cup Agave Nectar
  • 2 pinches of Xanthan Gum
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (or more)
Directions
  • Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips in blender

  • Pour into your ice cream maker and use as directed
  • Once ice cream has thickened add chocolate chips for last one minute

  • Remove from ice cream maker and add to tupperware

  • Freeze for 2-4 hours and serve
Nothing beats this combo. Nothing.

So the moral of the story? When life gives you hurricanes – make ice cream…andย don’tย forget to watch the prettiest sunset post storm.

Life.is.good.

QUESTIONS: Were you affected by Irene??ย

  1. Holy moly flooding. No fun! Glad everyone is safe.

    That ice cream looks oh so tasty!

    No Irene for this Cali girl ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Good to know your apartment wasn’t affected! A friend posted a pic from yesterday of Hoboken and there was a huy kayaking around. My town is really weird because half of it runs along the Passaic River. Therefore, that half of the town flooded BAD, like water up to your neck and my side looks as though nothing ever happened. Many of the towns around here also had horrible flooding and power outages. Crazy!

  14. Your “ice cream” looks delicious, i bet it was worth the wait! I had no idea you could use such a variety of types of ingredients in ice cream machinse- i’m very iffy on dairy myself, so I never thought of having an ice cream maker but now I have definite second thoughts!
