Peanut Butter & Maple Syrup Ice Cream

Peanut butter and maple syrup is an amazing combination.

It has been enjoyed in our household by many for a number of years now and it’s time to share the recipe with you all.  The unique flavour of peanut butter, maple syrup, and coconut produces a rich, smooth, and flavourful ice cream, with fresh dates added that give it a little texture.

Banana and Berry Ice Cream

This ice cream came about because I was going to a dinner party where the majority of the guests eat very little natural sugars, so I wanted to make a dessert that was sweet, but did not have any added honey or maple syrup of any kind. So this ice cream is only sweetened by the ingredients in it. It is deliciously smooth, light, and just sweet enough. There was none left at the end of the night and one of the kids licked the bowl I brought it in absolutely clean!
