Today I made these easy vegan dairy queen blizzards perfect for a hot beach day or your summer gatherings! This Reeses Peanut Butter cup blizzard is also perfect for Memorial Day week or 4th of July BBQ’s as a crowd pleasing dessert or vegan ice cream bar! This vegan Dairy Queen copycat recipe is easy to make, and best of all, seriously delicious. Making it perfect for your vegan summer party or potluck. 2 ingredients and 5 minute prep time to veganize a piece of your childhood, what more could you ask for?
Do you remember being a kid and after soccer practice or just on a super hot day, going to Dairy Queen and getting your favourite flavour of blizzard? Mine was ALWAYS the Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup (with extra peanut butter cups). So now that you’re an adult (and a vegan), who says you can’t still enjoy your favourite childhood treat?!
All you need for this recipe is 1 pint of dairy-free ice cream (I used So Delicious Very Vanilla Cashew milk, you could also make your own), and 1 cup of vegan peanut butter cups (I found mine at a local health food store). I like cashew based vegan ice creams rather than coconut based, but you can use whatever dairy-free ice cream you like best. You can also switch out peanut butter cups for any other vegan friendly chocolate, candy, or even fruit!
The first thing that you want to do is roughly chop up the peanut butter cups. Next, you want to soften the ice cream, you can add it to a food processor or blender, but I like the results best out of my stand mixer. Add the ice cream to the bowl and mix with the paddle attachment to soften it before adding toppings. Once soft, you can add in the chunks of peanut butter cups. Be careful not to over-mix, because you don’t want it to get too soft and melted. If you need to you can scrape down the sides of the mixer. Scoop into your cup/bowl of choice, flip upside down for DQ authenticity, and enjoy your thick, chunky, ice cream treat.
