I had a SERIOUS craving for ice cream the other night, and there’s nothing that can come between me and an ice cream craving. The only problem was that it was 10pm and since there was no simple way of obtaining it at this time, so I decided to make it! I searched the web and found a great, HEALTHY homemade ice cream recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie (no ice cream maker needed). I used Katie’s basic recipe and made a few small modifications to arrive at the ever so scrumptious Skinny Peanut Butter & Hazelnut Ice Cream…bonus, each serving is under 125 calories AND gluten free!
Skinny Peanut Butter & Hazelnut Ice Cream (makes 2 servings)
*note: the texture of this ice cream is much more icy than regular ice cream since it’s “skinny”, but it’s still delicious!
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
a pinch of sea salt
1 packet of Stevia sweetener (or 1 tbsp. sugar)
1 cup skim milk (substitute for whole milk, or even Almond milk for a richer texture)
1tbsp. peanut butter
1 tbsp. Nutella hazelnut spread
Mix the ingredients in a plastic container. Freeze. Once frozen, you may need to let thaw for a few minutes since the texture will be somewhat icy.
Enjoy your Skinny Peanut Butter & Hazelnut Ice Cream!
