Almonds in a dish on a table
Use High-Quality Ingredients
The key to making this almond butter ice cream taste its best is to use high-quality ingredients. The almond butter adds most of the flavor to this dish, so you’ll want to use sweet and creamy almond butter. You can also make your own. Using sweetened vanilla almond milk will also add to the sweetness level and give it some extra vanilla flavor that balances well, but you can also substitute any non-dairy milk that you have on hand. It’s also best to use pure vanilla and almond extracts vs. imitation because they just taste so much better when it’s made from the real thing.
Sub Other Nut Butters
While this ice cream shines with almond butter, you can also substitute other nut butters in its place. You can use almost any nut butter. Try giving pistachio, hazelnut, or pecan butters a try!
Pump Up the Nutrition
You might be thinking nutrition in dessert? But this almond butter ice cream is actually a great low-sugar snack. The almond butter is packed with protein and healthy fats. You can add even more nutritious vitamins and minerals by adding in fresh or dried fruit, nut pieces, and cacao nibs. It’s like making a superfood in the form of a delicious dessert!
