How do you make vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly ice cream?
There are a few steps that you need to do in order to make this, but you don’t need any ice cream makers or other non-standard appliances.
To start, you want to make roasted strawberries. To do this, you slice a pint of strawberries and place in a flat dish, sprinkle over sugar and lemon juice. Cover and place in fridge overnight (or at least 6 hours).
Then, preheat oven to 300 degrees and let strawberries roast for 3 hours. I know this seems like a long time but it really does make an amazing strawberry sauce. If you want, you can use store bought strawberry or grape jam instead.
If you are using store bought vegan condensed milk you can skip that step.
Once you have your condensed milk prepped or ready from the store, then you will start by whipping your coconut whipped topping. Follow the instructions for making it from home or pour out the contents of the tub and whip it.
If you are making it from canned coconut milk, you will whip until stiff peaks form. If you are using store bought, then just blend until smooth consistency.
Next, whip in your vegan condensed milk, peanut butter fudge, salt and vanilla extract.
Pour into a reusable ice cream container or freezer safe, air tight container by alternative layers of ice cream and strawberry sauce. Store at least 6 hours or overnight in the freezer.
Scoop out amount desired as needed and serve.
CAN I MAKE THIS TOP 8 ALLERGEN FRIENDLY PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY ICE CREAM?
I’ll be honest, this one can be made Top 8 Free, but it won’t taste the same.
So let’s walk through this. We can replace the coconut whipped topping with an almond or rice whip topping depending on allergens. Both of those come in spray cans.
Then, you just need to use a nut butter that is safe for you. If you are allergic to peanuts and all other nuts, then sunflowers are your best bet.
For the vegan condensed milk, we clearly outline how to make it in our linked post with any type of dairy free milk, so you could use oat or flax for Top 8 Allergen Friendly.
HOW LONG WILL VEGAN ICE CREAM LAST IN THE FREEZER?
For the most part, as long as you are using products that don’t expire soon, vegan ice cream will last 3-6 months if stored properly. Then again, that’s if it lasts that long!
WHAT STORE BOUGHT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
Making this store bought, definitely makes the process go faster. Our preferred products, if no coconut allergy is present, is So Delicious coconut whipped topping in the tub and the canned sweetened condensed coconut milk.
