So yesterday was just too hot! Ryan is adamant that he predicted (several times) the September heat wave back at the beginning of summer, personally I think he heard it on the radio and pointed it out to me once in passing.
When the weather is this hot it calls for one thing and one thing only…ICE CREAM!
However if like me your trying to limit treats to the weekend, its easy to feel left out. Fear not and behold the wonder that is NICE CREAM! Or otherwise know as Banana Ice cream.
Nice cream has been knocking around the Vegan/dairy free community for quite some time. I first came across it a couple of years ago, initially I wasn’t convinced. I’m not a massive fan of Banana’s and it took a couple of attempts to find a recipe which really hit the spot. I then spent the rest of the summer purchasing more bananas than Twycross Zoo , for those who are not familiar its home to the largest collection of monkeys and apes in the Western World.
I’m pretty sure there are thousands of different Nice Cream recipes out there, so what makes my Chunky Monkey Peanut Butter Nice Cream so special? Well obviously its free from gluten and dairy but its also free from refined sugars! My all time favourite ice cream has to be Ben and Jerry’s Peanut Butter ice cream! I’m not going to claim my recipe is as good, but if you’ve got the craving for something sweet but don’t want the calories hanging over your head, it certainly does the trick![yumprint-recipe id=’2′]
