Despite its reputation, ice cream, even fancier flavors like peanut butter ice cream, can be a very healthy dessert to serve your family when you make it yourself at home with quality ingredients.

Commercial ice cream has many dangers as I’ve outlined in the previous post Antifreeze in Your Ice Cream.   Once you realize that store ice cream is best to avoid and you want to try making your own, be sure to check out my videoblog on how to make basic vanilla ice cream.

Once you’ve got the hang of the basics, you can get creative with flavors and textures to delight your family!

This fabulous dairy free, peanut butter ice cream recipe was sent to me by Dorsey, a gal who just loves to experiment with Real Food in her kitchen.  Dorsey has guest posted another recipe for this blog before called Grain Free Angel Food Cake which was a huge hit for those on a grain free diet or just seeking to reduce the grain based foods in their diet.

Dorsey’s encore recipe below for peanut butter ice cream will prove just as popular I’m sure.
