Ice Ice Daddy .com being a website from Marseille in south of France, it was impossible not to make an ice-cream recipe dedicated to the best time of the day (aperitif) and our favorite drink (Pastis)!
You will get an ice cream with delicate flavors. The best thing to do is to taste it as a pre-aperitif before starting the real aperitif !!!
To make this ice cream, it is possible to use peanut butter sold in stores. But to have an healthier and more natural product, you will make your own peanut puree : it's very simple.
Buy unsalted shelled peanuts or even better, peanuts in their shell and mix them.

You do not have all these ingredients ? No problem. Forget the stabilizer if you do not have any at home. Replace simply dextrose and powdered glucose by usual sugar (sucrose). The ice cream texture will not be perfect but you will still get a very good ice cream. Your ice cream will however be a little bit sweeter.
