Most vegan nice cream recipes are made with bananas, which don’t work with my low carb way of eating. I’ve been planning to try nice cream without bananas for a long time now. I just needed the weather to warm up! It finally has (yay for spring!), so I’m excited to share this chocolate peanut butter nice cream recipe with you.

You’ll want to make it all summer long!

But first, what is nice cream?

What Is Nice Cream?

Nice cream is simply ice cream without milk or dairy. It’s nice ice cream that everyone can enjoy, even if you’re lactose intolerant, or just sensitive to it.

Dairy can be inflammatory and many people have intolerances. Even though I’m not one of them, as far as I know, I think reducing dairy can be beneficial for anyone sometimes.

So, I like having this nice cream as an alternative to my favorite regular low carb sugar-free ice cream recipe. Typically nice cream recipes use bananas, but this recipe doesn’t. If you want to use bananas, try my banana ice cream instead.

And, chocolate nice cream is totally delicious, so give it a try even if you can eat dairy, too.

Chocolate Nice Cream Recipe Ingredients

Unlike many nice cream recipes made with bananas, this one doesn’t have any. It only has 5 grams net carbs per serving – perfectly keto and low carb!

The ingredients for this chocolate nice cream recipe are simple and easy. You only need 5 of them:

  • Coconut milk
  • Peanut butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Cocoa powder
  • Powdered sweetener
  • Sea salt – this is optional and not counted in ingredient counts by convention

These ingredients even make this a vegan nice cream! I don’t have a lot of vegan recipes, but I like to mention it when I have one.

Chocolate and peanut butter make one of the easiest way to create vegan desserts. My no-bake chocolate peanut butter cookies are another one you’re going to love!

Whether you’re low carb, keto, vegan, or just dairy-free, you won’t feel like you’re missing out with this chocolate peanut butter nice cream.

You can use any powdered sweetener you like, as long as it’s powdered. This is so that your vegan nice cream is smooth and not grainy. I used powdered allulose but I also likegranulated alluloseor monk fruit. Check my keto sweetener guide for general low carb sweetener options and the sweetener conversion chart for conversions.

If you want a protein boost, add some keto collagen.

How To Make Nice Cream

The steps for how to make nice cream are quick and easy! Since I still don’t have an ice cream maker, I made this as no-churn nice cream. And even though it does harden in the fridge, it’s just perfect after a few hours, and you can thaw it for a while if you want to eat it again later.

To start, puree all the ingredients together in a powerful blender or food processor. Pour the mixture into a parchment lined or glass loaf pan. Anything freezer-safe will work, but you want to line it if it’s a surface that may stick.

Cover the vegan nice cream and freeze it for about 3-4 hours, stirring at the 30 and 60 minute marks to break up ice crystals. This is essentially replacing the function of the ice cream maker.

I’m pretty sure it would work to actually use an ice cream maker, but haven’t tried it. Please let me know if that works for you!

When To Eat and How To Store Vegan Nice Cream

This chocolate peanut butter nice cream recipe is best after freezing for 3-4 hours. That gives it the consistency you see in the pictures, so eat it around that time if you can.

If you are freezing for longer, you’ll probably need to thaw the chocolate nice cream on the counter to make it a breeze to scoop out. Just plan ahead if you won’t be eating it the same day.

Finally, remember to run your ice cream scoop under warm water before scooping. That makes it easier to scoop, and even starts melting the edges just a little bit. Which is totally delicious.

Let’s make some chocolate nice cream this summer! If you want more ideas for dairy-free frozen desserts, try almond milk ice cream, coconut milk ice cream, or coconut sorbet.
