Peanut Butter Cup Nice Cream (Vegan)

Peanut Butter Cup Nice Cream.  This ice cream is made healthier, but it’s still also a little indulgent.  I used a frozen banana base and added some dark chocolate peanut butter cups to it.

I used Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups which are naturally vegan.  While they do contain a bit of sugar, they are far better than a Reese’s cup! Besides, we all need to indulge every once and a while.  It’s called balance.

My mouth is watering just thinking about this ice cream!  It definitely did not last long in our house. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I love baking around the holidays. Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are one of my favorite holiday cookie recipes.  Before this Whole Food Life, I used to do a lot of traditional baking.  However since that time, I have tried to modify those traditional recipes to make them a bit healthier. I hope you enjoy my version.
