Peanut Butter Nice Cream

  • 1 can Full Fat Coconut Milk
  • 4 Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract

Chocolate Drizzle

  • 1.5 cup chocolate chunks (vegan)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil

Additional Layers

  • 1/2 cup date caramel
  • 1/2 cup Salted Peanuts


  • Line a bread pan with parchment paper and set aside
  • In a food processor or high powered blender, add all the nice cream ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into the bread pan and place in the freezer until it is fully frozen, at least 3 hours.
  • Using a high powered blender, make the date syrup. (both the nice cream and date syrup can be made days in advance for easy assembly when ready.)
  • Prepare the melted chocolate by using the double boiling method or microwave method (mentioned above). Combine the coconut oil into the chocolate while melting.
  • Once ready to make the Snickers Ice cream bars, remove the nice cream from the freezer. Use the extra parchment paper to remove the nice cream from the bread pan. Slice the nice cream into bar sized pieces. (should result in 6-8 ice cream bars).
  • Top the ice cream bars with date caramel and peanuts. Then, dip the ice cream bars into the melted chocolate. Finish by adding the remaining melted chocolate on top and place the ice cream bars back into the freezer to firm, at least 30 minutes.
  • You can enjoy the ice cream bars immediately after they have firmed or leave them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 weeks!

  • I prefer melting my chocolate using the double boiling method and adding coconut oil as it is melting, but use whatever method you like best!
  • These bars can last up to two weeks in the freezer. When you are ready to enjoy them, take the bars out of the freezer and let sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes to soften for a more enjoyable experience!
