peanut butter molasses ice cream

I haven't been making food since I just got back from a small bike tour, but I took a picture of this invention earlier and feel like I need a new post! I was yearning for ice cream but had no chocolate (which is always my first ice cream choice) so I decided to make a peanut butter molasses ice cream. It rocked! My only complaint was that it was VERY rich, and while that generally doesn't deter me from eating a ton, with this it did (in retrospect, maybe that shouldn't be a complaint!). To make it, I mixed peanut butter and water making a thick peanut milk, basically. To that, I added molasses, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. I think that if you wanted it to be a little less rich you could just omit the molasses and put in plain vegan sugar (which I probably would have done had I currently had any normal sugar). In this case I would probably supplement the THICK peanut milk with some soy milk or other nut milk and omit the ginger and cinnamon. Either way, it's a great recipe to play around with.

Sounds yummy. I love PB anything! Did you ever make the pretzel kind that was mentioned on the VW boards. That sounds awesome.
