Obsession-Worthy Peanut Butter Cookie Ice Cream – Oh She Glows


A few years in the past, I used to be studying a weblog submit by a blogger I’d been following for some time. She wrote a few current battle with despair and her trustworthy phrases made such an affect on me. I keep in mind pondering how courageous it was for her to inform her story. Whereas I hated that she was going by it, I additionally recall feeling consolation in her phrases as a result of it was one other reminder that even these we admire and placed on a pedestal are human. I used to be similar to…Wow, it should’ve taken a lot for her to share that. On the time, I used to be early on in my running a blog journey, and I advised myself that I might at all times attempt to share my struggles, similar to she did. 

Final week, I gave a speech on the College of Guelph at their Awards of Excellence Gala (you’ll be able to see some photographs in my saved story on Instagram!). In my speech, I shared how I’ve struggled with my psychological well being, like anxiousness, since I used to be very younger and the way it’s felt debilitating at sure factors in my life. I spoke about how numerous private challenges have coincided with a profession that’s made me face them head on. The day earlier than the occasion, I virtually determined to scrap my speech and write one thing that was simpler to speak about, however I mentioned screw it and determined to share it. It was my story! Permitting myself to really feel disgrace surrounding my story solely provides it energy. 

After my speech, a person with a heat smile got here as much as me, crouched down subsequent to my chair, and thanked me for my speech. He talked a few time in his life when he struggled together with his psychological well being, and we each had tears in our eyes by the top of our dialog. One other man got here up later to inform me about his younger relative’s struggles. This evening was one more reminder of the facility of vulnerability and it left such an affect on me!

It’s been a little bit of an odd 12 months for me (one which I can’t consider we’re already half-way by!). I went by an emotional time for the primary few months of the 12 months and located myself in a light despair. I misplaced pleasure and fervour for therefore many issues. At sure factors, I couldn’t even deliver myself to get again to messages from family and friends. It makes me emotional simply writing about it now as a result of the troublesome feelings of that point come again so simply. After struggling in silence for two to three months, I lastly opened as much as my family and friends about it and bought assist. I’ve been in a significantly better place because the spring. I needed to be trustworthy about it and to let you understand what was happening on the time, however I didn’t really feel sturdy sufficient to speak about it after I was within the thick of it.  

There’s additionally been another excuse for my absence and that is one thing that’s a lot simpler to let you know about! I’ve a 3rd cookbook within the works and I’ve been engaged on it for a few 12 months and a half now! Okay, okay, I did let this information “slip” within the weblog feedback a pair occasions and in addition in my Instagram DM’s, too, so you could already know. 😉 I’ve held off saying it right here as a result of throughout sure intervals, nicely, I wasn’t even certain if it was going to return to life. After I fell into my despair originally of the 12 months, I misplaced ardour for nearly all the pieces. Creativity and motivation aren’t issues that may be pressured so I simply went with the circulation and tried to belief that I’d really feel myself once more.

After working by some issues and beginning to really feel higher, it was as if a lightbulb flicked on in my head. I got here to life. I used to be out of the blue thrilled on the prospect of making once more. I couldn’t get to work quick sufficient. And since late winter, I picked up the place I left off earlier than January and dove into the work that I really like a lot. Shortly after, Eric, Nicole, and I began working with our recipe testing group (about 40 unbelievable testers sturdy!), and issues have been going higher than I may’ve imagined. The recipes are so scrumptious…my testers are telling me it’s my finest assortment of recipes so far. I’m so pleased with it and I’m practically completed, solely about 1 month away from handing in my manuscript. As soon as my manuscript is in, I’m going to be diving into the meals images, which I’ll be taking pictures for this third e book. I’m a bit nervous on the prospect of taking pictures 100 photographs in 2 months time, however I’ll get there, sooner or later at a time! Will probably be enjoyable to shift from recipe creation and writing to one thing so inventive like images. 

The cookbook goes to concentrate on one thing you all have been asking for increasingly of over time, and that’s extra dinner and lunch recipes! It’s largely going to concentrate on savory recipes, with a dessert chapter, after all (how may I not embrace a dessert chapter?). It’s going to characteristic meals you’ll need to make for weeknight dinners, weekend meals, transportable work/college lunches, and particular holidays and events. Gah. There are such a lot of gems. It’s slated to be out fall 2020, so not too lengthy to attend (not less than within the publishing world, this feels SO quickly)!! If there’s something you’d like to see within the e book, please depart a remark beneath and let me know!! 

Thanks for listening and on your assist by the ups and downs of life. I’m so grateful you’re right here as I’ve felt like an enormous ‘ol failure on the running a blog entrance this 12 months.

That is my favorite sort of summer season indulgence! My reader-favourite Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies meet my dreamy home made peanut butter and coconut milk ice cream on this cooling summer season deal with. Chewy coconut, snappy chocolate chips, and tender bites of sentimental peanut butter cookies mix completely with a creamy vanilla and peanut butter vegan ice cream. If I’d recognized how easy it was to make my very own vegan ice cream (solely 5 substances!), I might’ve invested in an ice cream machine way back. Properly, I’m making up for misplaced time now! The peanut butter ice cream is impressed by Cookie + Kate.


  • 1 batch Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, divided
  • 2 (14-ounce/398 mL) cans full-fat coconut milk*
  • 1/2 cup (105 g) pure cane sugar
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) clean pure peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon wonderful sea salt, or to style


  1. Chill the ice cream bowl within the freezer in a single day, or for not less than 12 hours. This step is essential to make sure the ice cream thickens correctly. 
  2. Put together the Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. After baking, cool the cookies for 10 to fifteen minutes, then switch each to a plate. Place within the freezer on a flat floor for at least 25 minutes. As quickly as you switch the cookies to the freezer, get began on the ice cream.
  3. Add the ice cream substances (total cans of coconut milk, sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt) to a blender and mix for about 8 to 10 seconds, till clean (be certain to not mix longer than 10 seconds, as it might impact the ultimate texture of your ice cream). 
  4. Place the frozen ice cream bowl into the ice cream maker, insert the churning arm, cowl with the lid, and activate the machine (if the directions on your ice cream maker are completely different, please observe the instructions that got here together with your machine). Slowly pour the combination into the bowl because it churns. Churn for about 22 minutes, till the combination has thickened into a really skinny, soft-serve texture. 
  5. As soon as the cookies have been within the freezer for 25 minutes, chop 6 of the cookies into small, almond-sized chunks. Reserve the remaining 7 cookies, at room temperature, for later.
  6. After 22 minutes of churning, slowly add the chopped cookies, a handful at a time, to the combination whereas the machine remains to be churning. I like to make use of a fork to softly push the chopped cookies into the ice cream and assist it alongside. Churn one other 5 to eight minutes, till the ice cream has thickened a bit extra. It would have a thick, soft-serve texture when prepared. There can be some hardened ice cream alongside the within of the bowl…I like to consider this because the chef’s additional serving to (wink, wink)! Serve instantly, or for a firmer texture, switch the ice cream to a loaf pan or hermetic container and unfold out clean. At this stage, I prefer to crumble an additional cookie everywhere in the prime (and gently push it into the ice cream) to make it look extra-enticing, however that is non-compulsory. Cowl and freeze for two hours for a extra conventional ice cream firmness. 
  7. To serve, scoop into bowls or ice cream cones. Or, for those who’re feeling wild, make ice cream sandwiches with the leftover cookies…oh yea!!
  8. Storage tip: Leftovers may be saved in an hermetic container within the freezer for 3 to 4 weeks. You’ll want to cowl the ice cream with a chunk of wrap to forestall freezer burn. To melt, let the container relaxation on the counter for 20 to half-hour earlier than scooping.


* The cans of coconut milk don’t should be chilled beforehand.

All the time observe the instructions that include your ice cream maker as there could also be slight variations. My churning time is an estimate solely; you could discover you want kind of time together with your machine! Watch intently throughout the previous couple of minutes of churning. It it nonetheless seems to be too smooth, be happy to let it churn a bit longer than the vary I present.

That is the ice cream maker that I exploit and love. Professional tip: This machine is a bit noisy as soon as the combination begins to thicken, so I prefer to hold the machine in a close-by room with the door closed whereas it churns (don’t fret, my machine would not appear too offended and nonetheless makes nice ice cream!).

No ice cream maker? No drawback! The blended liquid may be poured into popsicle molds for creamy frozen popsicle treats. Merely add the blended liquid to every popsicle mould, leaving not less than an inch of room on the prime. Now, fastidiously add some cookie chunks to every, pushing them down slowly into the liquid. If wanted, add a bit extra liquid to fully fill every mould. Safe the tops and freeze till strong. Run the popsicles underneath scorching water to loosen them from the molds.
