Super easy 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Ice Cream Bites (Treats/Snacks/Vegan/Natural/Healthy)

I may be slightly obsessed with the new silicone mold I got from Michael's that now allows me to make cute little square shaped treats :) So I have been busy coming up with quick and easy recipes that are healthy and kid friendly.

All you will need for this recipe is a nut butter, like peanut butter or another one of choice. You can even experiment with things like Tahini(paste made out of sesame seeds) or Sunflower seed butter(I made a bath that was a mix of peanut butter and sunflower butter and it was delicious).
Then you will need and equal amount of either sour cream(I like the Wallaby brand, they are organic and without any thickeners) or for a vegan option Coconut Milk(I like the Trader Joe's Brand, it is the only one I can find without thickeners).
Put both in your blender, let's say you choose to do 1 cup of each, and then add a few tablespoons of organic raw honey(or coconut sugar or maple syrup for vegan option).
Blend it up, I love using my Nutribullet for this.
Give it a taste, if you want more sweetness add more.

Then all you do is either pour it into a silicone mold, for reference here is what mine looks like, ignore the fact that there is chocolate in there(that was a different recipe:) )
And if you don't have a fancy mold, no problem, just plop it by the spoonful onto a parchment paper lined plate or cookie sheet.

Once they freeze they are the perfect consistency, not too hard or ice like, more like actual ice cream, soft and creamy. If you want to get all fancy with it, you can top them with melted chocolate.

And enjoy!
