No Churn Keto Low Carb Peanut Butter Ice Cream Recipe

Keto Peanut Butter No Churn Ice Cream Recipe

As someone who doesn’t own an ice cream maker, I LOVE making my own no-churn ice cream. We’ve had keto vanilla ice cream, keto chocolate ice cream, and keto strawberry ice cream.

As a diehard peanut butter lover, it was only time to make a peanut butter ice cream recipe! 

What is no churn ice cream 

No churn ice cream refers to ice cream that is made without an ice cream maker!

It’s perfect for those who rarely make ice cream, or prefer to make smaller batches of ice cream! Ways to make no-churn ice cream involve using either a food processor, a stand mixer or my preferred method, a high-speed blender

Keto and Vegan Low Carb Peanut Butter Ice Cream Recipe

No-Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream- Just 3 Ingredients! 

Making low carb peanut butter ice cream is so easy, and needs 3 ingredients. 

  • Peanut Butter
  • Full fat coconut cream
  • Keto Maple Syrup

That’s it!

Peanut Butter (and substitutions!)

To keep this no-churn ice cream keto friendly and low carb, I opted to use peanut butter. I love the peanut butter flavor, and the rich texture makes this ice cream even better!

For my paleo friends, I’ve tried this with both almond butter and cashew butter. Almond butter worked beautifully, but the cashew butter was a little gritty. 

Full Fat Canned Coconut Milk

Full-fat coconut milk cannot be replaced for an alternative in all my ice-cream recipes. Furthermore, it MUST be from a can. Cartoned coconut milk will yield a thinner consistency. 

Keto Maple Syrup (and substitutions!) 

A sticky sweetener provides sweetness, along with a smooth and creamy consistency. I use keto maple syrup, to keep it keto friendly.

If you don’t follow a strict keto diet, you can replace it with pure maple syrup or agave nectar

Alternatively, you can use liquid monk fruit drops (similar to liquid stevia), but adjust to taste. 

How to make no churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream 

  • Place a freezer-friendly container or loaf pan in the freezer. 
  • Add all your ingredients into a food processor or high-speed blender.
  • Blend until smooth and combined, regularly scraping down the sides to ensure it is properly mixed.
  • Transfer the ice-cream mixture to the pre-frozen pan/container, cover, and place in the freezer.
  • For the first hour, regularly stir the ice cream mixture to avoid it freezing incorrectly.
  • Allow freezing for 2-3 hours. 
  • Thaw for 15 minutes, before enjoying. 

How long does no churn peanut butter ice cream take to freeze?

Allow at least 2 hours for the ice cream to freeze, with 3/4 hours being better. 

If you prefer smoother ice cream, you can remove it after 2 hours, but ensure you eat it immediately.

How long does no churn peanut butter ice cream last? 

No-churn peanut butter ice cream will keep for at least 7 days but is best to enjoy fresh.

Before enjoying, allow thawing for at least 30 minutes. Before scooping, lightly wet your ice cream scoop.

Can I use an ice cream maker?

I’ve tried this recipe with an ice cream maker (I did get one for Christmas, just never used it!) and it does work well.

The only issue with it is that there is a slightly more time-consuming method. 

Follow the no-churn instructions, but freeze the mixture for 45 minutes, before transferring to the ice cream maker, and churn for 10-15 minutes.

Freeze for an hour, before serving.

Tips and Tricks for PERFECT No-Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream 

  • Chill your coconut milk beforehand, as it provides an even creamier texture
  • Try to stir the ice cream mixture every 10-15 minutes for the first hour, to ensure the ice cream is easy to scoop
  • Avoid refreezing ice cream multiple times, as it will become too icy
  • If your ice cream becomes super icy (even after thawing after 30 minutes), place back in the blender and re-blend. You’ll be able to enjoy it soft-serve style.

  1. This sounds absolutely wonderful! Coconut and peanut butter are such a beautiful combination. Thank you for making this recipe feasible for those who don’t have an ice cream machine!

  2. Uh Oh! I used a can of unsweetened coconut cream and a little too much peanut butter. The mixture tastes bitter and nothing like ice cream. Is there anything that I can do to save it?
