Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard

Does anyone out there miss Blizzards? You know, the ice cream dessert served by Dairy Queen that is full of crumbled up cookies or candy bars. I recently came up with this recipe and it brought me back to those days. It tastes just like a chocolate ice cream, Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard!  I bet you can’t wait to take a scoop of this one. The special thing about this recipe is that it tastes super dangerous without all the guilt that a 760 calorie Dairy Queen Blizzard has.


1 1/2 cups dates
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almond meal or raw almonds
1/2 cup peanut butter

Mix together in a food processor or blender.

Nice cream:
4 frozen bananas
1 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp cocoa powder or less
1 cup unsweetened almond milk ( or plant milk of choice )

Blend together in a blender until smooth.

Scoop a layer of nice cream into the bottom of cup or glass. Sprinkle chunks of crumbles and then scoop on another layer of nice cream. Top with more crumbles and enjoy. Keep extra crumbles in the fridge to use for your next Blizzard!

  1. We absolutely LOVED the crumbly peanut butter topping. My son described it as “heavenly.” The banana ice cream was less of a hit with my family though. How could we add a little sweetness to it? Maple syrup, perhaps? It tasted a bit bitter. Also, did you use dark chocolate powder?

      Yes, we use dark chocolate powder. You could add a date or two with the almond milk first and blend it and then add the bananas. Not sure why it would be bitter. Sometimes if the bananas aren’t ripe enough they have a odd taste. They are really best when the skin is really spotty and the bananas are almost mushy.
