Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream Grahamwiches!Posted: August 1, 2012
This is oh so good, and oh so decadent! It’s also very easy to make! This is also very much an American dessert. Between training for a half-marathon, preparing for a new job, and playing with my daughter at the park, I had a craving for something sweet, satisfying, cold, and yummy! But, alas, I can’t really say it’s particularly healthful. My grandmother was fond of saying “la gourmandise est toujours punie.” This roughly means to avoid over-doing it. With this dessert, a little goes a long way!
You’ll need to have on-hand:
Nabisco original graham crackers (or any other vegan brand)
Vegan chocolate chips
Your favorite non-dairy/vegan vanilla flavored ice cream (I used So Delicious made with Almond Milk)
Now for the secret ingredient:
The peanut butter frosting:
1/3 cup of Earth Balance Margarine
1/3 cup of all natural peanut butter
2 cups vegan powdered sugar
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon vanilla soy creamer
In a food processor (I actually used my magic bullet), blend he peanut butter frosting recipe all together. Adjust the sugar/creamer ratio to get the consistency you want.
When you’re ready to make the sandwiches:
Thaw half a pint of the ice cream so that it is easy to work with but not totally melted. Fold in the peanut butter frosting with 1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chips. Spread the mixture on the graham crackers and chill in the freezer for about 1 hr so that it has time to set. Enjoy!
