I don’t know about you, but Blizzards were my THING growing up. I always got Reese’s Pieces or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with chocolate ice cream (shocker, I know).
So if you are reading this right now and are like “what the beep is Rachel talking about? what is a Blizzard?”, I actually feel bad that you haven’t experienced the magical taste and flavor orgasm in your mouth that a Blizzard is. Thanks to Dairy Queen, Blizzard’s combine your favorite ice cream with your favorite candy in this magical blender. It crushes the candy into the ice cream so you have that flavor and candy crunch in every bite. You may also know Blizzard’s as McFlurry’s if McDonald’s was your thing.
Now, as much as I’d love to chow down on Blizzard’s as frequently as I used to, I unfortunately don’t these days. They are overflowing with my favorite candy and ice cream but they’re also overloaded with unnecessary calories, processed ingredients and nothing your body really needs. That is why today I am sharing the new & improved, 5-ingredient Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard.
This 5-ingredient Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard is gluten & dairy free AND it is made with my absolute favorite sorbetto from my friend’s at Ciao Bella.
Ciao Bella is a gelato & sorbetto company serving some of the most delicious and high quality frozen treats. They originated in Little Italy, NYC (right by me!) and are fully dedicated to providing customers with high quality and delicious gelato & sorbetto. I purchased my Ciao Bella at the Whole Foods near my apartment but check out their store locater to see where it is closest to you!
Now for this 5-ingredient Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard, I wanted to make it dairy free so I used their Dark Cocoa Sorbetto. It is one of my favorites from Ciao Bella, and it has less than 5 ingredients that you can pronounce. Plus the dark chocolatey flavor is a-m-a-z-i-ng. I may or may not have spooned a few bites before making this..
Now it’s your turn..
