Pinterest Thursday-Ninja CREAMi Recipes Pt. 3

15 Sep

As I mentioned in my Pinterest Thursday post a while back, I bought a CREAMi. 🙂

Today I am back with a few more recipes.

Last time I shared “blizzard” recipes using candy from the store. But, I wanted to try making “blizzards” with homemade candy. I started with homemade peanut butter cups. We love these so much! The Pinterest recipe for those is here (I use dairy-free chocolate chips to make these dairy-free/gluten-free.)

I decided to make the peanut butter cups without the chocolate coating. After freezing little logs of peanut butter cup mixture for a bit, we used them as mix-ins into both a vanilla ice cream, and a coconut milk vanilla ice cream (dairy-free.) We also added dairy-free chocolate chips. It was really a deconstructed peanut butter cup ice cream “blizzard.”

So, I learned a few things. First, the peanut butter cups need to be completely frozen. Because they were still soft, they completely disintegrated into the ice cream.

This wasn’t totally bad. It made a delicious ice cream base that we all enjoyed. It tasted like peanut butter cup ice cream with chocolate chips-very good.

If you want the chunks of peanut butter though, you have to use frozen peanut butter cups.

Overall, the recipe tastes really good-both the regular and the dairy-free versions. And, I love that I don’t have to buy candy from the store to make our own “blizzards!”

I will definitely be making this again, and I am looking forward to trying this again with homemade peppermint patties!

For my next recipe, I made this:

It’s peach season around here, and even though we aren’t huge peach fans, this ice cream sounded good, so I made it 🙂

After I had all of the ingredients mixed, I didn’t think it had enough peach flavor, so I added another half of a peach (making it 2 1/2 peaches.)

This actually filled two pint containers (probably because of the extra peaches), but that’s OK.

The results?

It is good. I liked it better than the rest of my family. I wouldn’t say I would go out of my way to make it again, but I did enjoy it.

It had a pretty mild flavor, and it would have been nicer if it was stronger I think.

If you really love peaches, you would probably like this.

For my final recipe share today, I made frozen chocolate milk from the recipe guide. Basically, you just pour the milk into the container and freeze it. No one really cared for this one. It tasted like watered down chocolate ice milk. I did use chocolate almond milk (to make it dairy-free for The Boy) instead of regular chocolate milk, so maybe there wasn’t enough fat or something? Anyway, it was kind of a bust. Oh well-it was worth a try, right?

Well, that’s it for today. I am still making recipes with the CREAMi (we have made vanilla and cinnamon bun several times now!) and I am sure I will share more new recipes in the future!
