1 (6 ounce) greek vanilla yogurt
1/2 apple, cored and chopped

Paleo Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Makes 1.5 quarts/Serves 4

2- 13.6 oz cans unsweetened coconut milk
2 Tbsp cocao powder
1/4th cup coconut sugar or sweetener of choice
1/4th tsp arrowroot powder
3 egg whites

Add last
1/4 cup peanut butter

Directions:
1. Place all ingredients in a medium sized sauce pan on medium heat. Omit peanut butter
2. Whisk for about 5 min or until liquid starts to bubble.
3. Take off burner and pour liquid in a mixing bowl. Cover and let set in fridge for id least 2 hours
or fully cooled.
4. Place into ice cream maker for about 10 min. Watch the thickness of the ice cream and add the peanut butter in at about 5 min. If you wait till its almost done and very thick the peanut butter will not mix well.
5. You can serve immediately for a soft serve ice cream or put ice cream into a glass container and let set in freezer for a few hours until it hardens. I garnished mine with cacao nibs and some honey!
