So with my Mother's Day gift (an ice cream maker) I am on a mission to create my favorite ice cream flavors. This weekend, I made a pecan praline and a chocolate chip cookie dough version that met great reviews from our dinner guests. Tonight...I'm making Chocolate Sunbutter Ice Cream.
I found a recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream on DeliciouslyOrganic.net but didn't like using peanut butter since it is prone to mold and not the best for you. Sunbutter is more allergen friendly so it makes this recipe more accessible to all. I also like blending ingredients in the blender instead of heating because then I don't have to wait for the mixture to cool. I'm not that patient when it comes to ice cream! The banana adds smoothness but you can't taste it at all.
So here goes:
2 cups full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup Sunbutter
1/2 a banana
Blend well in blender until fully mixed. Pour in ice cream machine and freeze according to your ice cream makers instructions! Enjoy!
