Fudgy Peanut Butter Cashew Ice Cream

1 1/3 cup cashews soaked overnight
1 can full fat coconut milk1 heaping tbsp American Dream Grandmas Peanut Butter Fudge
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp Xanthan Gum
6 or 10 dates (if omitting xanthan gum use 10 dates)
1/3 cup nut milk

Toppings: chopped nuts (we love pecans or walnuts) and more PB!


  1. Place soaked cashews, coconut milk from can, dates, vanilla, Xanthan Gum, Grandmas PB Fudge Peanut Butter, and nut milk into a high powered blender and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, try scraping downsides and add 1 tbsp more of milk. If wanting it more sweet, you can add a few more dates.
  2. No ice cream maker? Start by chilling a loaf pan in the freezer.
  3. Pour half of your ice cream mixture into the bottom of the pan. Drizzle with extra peanut butter and any additional desired toppings. Drag your spoon back and forth to mix into a marble effect.
  4. Then top with remaining half of your ice cream mixture and top with more peanut butter. Swirl again with a spoon.
  5. Place in the freezer for 20 mins.
  6. Want single servings? Try this: Remove your ice cream from the freezer after 20 minutes and scoop into roughly ten scoops and place onto a cookie sheet. Place back into the freezer until frozen solid and store in a freezer bag or storage container. Makes for quick ready to eat servings.
  7. If you didn't pre scoop the ice cream, let your full loaf pan warm on the counter for 5- 10 minutes to soften before scooping.

  • I notice the recipe says dairy free yet all of the nut butters contain milk. Are there any nut butters that dont contain milk so I can try some recipes?
