Pretty peanut & honey ice-cream
On our second day of what promises to be at least a four day stretch of 40c plus temperatures there isn't much in the way of doing anything other than lying still cursing the suns rays on my mind.
But, of course, there is one bonus to being trapped inside by the insane heat that is the hallmark of Sunraysia summers, and that of course my lovely friends is ice-cream.
With the pretty speckles of pulsed roasted peanuts floating in the honey sweetened ice-cream, this dairy free deliciousness is definitely on the healthier side of ice-creams without any loss of the creaminess you have come to love from milk based ice-cream.
The only thing I would advise is if you're stuck in a heatwave making this ice-cream you may want to have roasted the peanut ahead of time.

Hiding out from the heat as the air from the fan gently brushes your skin.
