Peanut Butter & Co: Dark Chocolate Dreams Review and Ice Cream Recipe

Last year I stumbled upon Peanut Butter & Co in Sainsbury’s. I’ve since repurchased the original flavour on and off throughout the last year. However, I’d never come across any of the 10 interesting flavours they do. When the UK branch of Peanut Butter & Co asked if I’d like to try out a couple of their other flavours I obviously said yes. They can be hard to get hold of here but places such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco and of course, good old Amazon usually have a good selection. I believe small indie shops around the UK stock it. Check the store finder.

Peanut Butter & Co create all natural peanut butters. Lee Zalben is the founder of Peanut Butter & Co, if you want to find out more about his business journey then head back to my first review.


Isn’t the packaging cute? I love that cheeky little monkey hanging off the logo.

This peanut butter is blended with rich dark chocolate. To me, this honestly tastes like peanut butter cups. No, it tastes better than peanut butter cups. I like that they used dark chocolate, it means that it’s not too sweet but still has a good ratio of chocolate and peanut butter. As you can see from the photo the peanut butter is quite a thick consistency but tastes delightfully smooth in your mouth. I may have even eaten it straight from the spoon. Just once, I promise!

I’ve used this peanut butter in so many different ways and I really wish I’d documented each one for you. It’s just so delicious that I kept forgetting to take photos as I went along. I’ve found that this peanut butter tastes really good on rye bread, in smoothies, on slices of apples or in baking (anyone fancy a chocolate brownie?).

Today I’m sharing a very easy peanut butter, dark chocolate and banana ice cream recipe with you. 

All you need is:

1/4 cup of Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
2 bananas – frozen or very ripe is fine
Splash of almond milk.

Yes, that’s it. 

Simply blend it all together, pop it in the freezer and you’re done.

After a couple of hours you’ll have soft serve ice cream.

I personally leave the ice cream over night so it fully sets. I like to then serve it with cacao nibs to give it a little more texture.

Next week I’ll be reviewing The Heat is On peanut butter.
