Warm Peanut Butter on Ice Cream

The title says it all, doesn’t it?  Sadly, not for the lactose intolerant (even if using frozen yogurt) or peanut allergy (see Ingredients for alternatives).  DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for your cravings, waist line or diabetes.


  • Microwave


  • Frozen yogurt/ice cream: Vanilla, chocolate
  • Peanut butter (chunky or smooth) or:
    • Almond butter: Instead of melting, it turned into a hard almondy rock.  Maybe try microwaving at 50%?
    • Chocolate almond butter
    • Tahini: currently untested


  1. Scoop out peanut butter into a microwavable dish.  If you put the entire jar in – remove the top and protective seal (some have metal in them)
  2. Microwave the peanut butter for 30 seconds.  Depends on how much peanut butter you use.
  3. Scoop frozen yogurt/ice cream into bowl
  4. Pour warmed peanut butter over the frozen yogurt/ice cream


  • Frozen yogurt is barely a healthier choice than ice cream.  Portion control!  Making your own frozen yogurt will allow you to control the sugar.
  • Things to add include or substitute:
    • chocolate chips
    • jam
    • fruit
    • Reese Peanut Butter Cups
    • Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie and Cocoa Swirl (image)
