Vegan Peanut Butter Ice Cream Recipe

You need to make this today. If you have an ice cream maker of course. If not, you should buy one if only to make this ice cream.

Vegan Peanut Butter Ice Cream

1 c peanut butter
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c agave nectar
1 1/4 c almond milk
2 c coconut milk
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t xanthan gum*

Use a hand mixer to mix peanut butter and sweetener for approx. 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients and mix for another minute or until completely blended. Add to your ice cream maker and give it about 30 minutes to do it's thing. You can add stuff in at 25 minutes; such as chocolate chips, carob chips, or use your imagination.

*Xanthan gum can be derived from lactose which is an animal byproduct. I used Bob's Red Mill and it is  not lactose derived, doesn't say but most xanthan gum is corn derived. I'm guessing you can leave it out but xanthan gum works as a binder and a thickener and it definitely gives that super creamy texture.
