PB & J Layered Ice Cream Terrine

It seems as if time is going by so quickly as of lately!  Maybe it is because I am so busy, or maybe that is just what happens when we are no longer children and forget to pause and enjoy life.  As of this week I have been working at my job in the deli for 6 years!  Where did that time go?  I feel like it was just yesterday when I was a shy 20 year old applying for a job there.  So much  has changed...in my life and there!  When I began that job, I never would have thought that I would have a blog a few years later or have the skills in the kitchen that I have since learned (as I used to just work on the counter and not do any cooking).  Funny how life goes by so fast.  I need to work more on stopping to enjoy the little things I love so I do not miss them. 

Like peanut butter and jam.  I know I have expressed my love for this combination on here before, but I am mentioning it again because I made a PB & J Layered Ice Cream Terrine this week and it was so scrumptious it was worth enjoying every minute of! 

I had decided that I have made a lot of ice cream on this blog, but not done anything exciting with it besides ice cream sandwiches...so the terrine was perfect! 

I layered peanut butter (my favorite ice cream ever) with strawberry jam, strawberry ice cream and crunchy peanuts.  It was beautiful and it was divine!  It would be perfect to serve at a party, kids and adults would love it! 

PB & J Layered Ice Cream Terrine

Serves 10

Strawberry Ice Cream:

1 1/2 cups organic full fat coconut milk, chilled
3/4 cup organic strawberries, quartered
1/4 cup  plus 2 Tbsp agave nectar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup strawberry jam home made* or storebought

Peanut Butter Ice Cream:
1 1/2 cups organic full fat coconut milk, chilled
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp agave nectar
1/2 cup smooth organic peanut butter (no sugar added)
1/2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts

For serving: 1/2 cup strawberry jam
sliced organic strawberries for garnish

For strawberry ice cream, combine all ingredients except strawberry jam in a blender, and process until well blended. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to package directions (mine takes about an hour, and is still a little soupy like the consistency of a malt, but firms up in the freezer later). Once processed, pour into a 8x4 inch loaf pan lined with 2 layers of plastic wrap.  Place in the freezer until set, a few hours.  Spread strawberry jam over the strawberry ice cream and place back in the freezer until you complete the peanut butter ice cream (if you have the type of ice cream maker that needs to refreeze in between batches, it may stay in the freezer overnight, just cover with plastic wrap.

Once processed, pour over the strawberry ice cream and the jam in the pan, spread the top smooth, and sprinkle with chopped peanuts.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer to set overnight.
To unmold, turn out onto a serving platter and remove plastic wrap.  Spread 1/2 cup strawberry jam over the top, and arrange sliced strawberries decoratively over the top.  To serve, cut into slices!

    Time does fly by when you are busy, especially at work! You are at a point in your job where it is just doing the familiar, which is a whole lot better than bending your brain over new stuff every day!<br />Your terrine does look stunning. It is amazing how you took the flavors of a simple pb&j sandwich and converted it to such a delicious and elegant dessert. Well done Amy! Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

    Time certainly does go by quickly, but not so fast that we forget our best childhood favourites such as peanut butter & jam and ice cream ... AND now you've put them together into one remarkable recipe. Awesome!

    6 years is a milestone for sure! Congrats! PB and J is not something I grew up with in the UK, but I do love it! This dessert looks like the perfect vehicle for it. Yum!

    Like Ruth said, we don't do PB&J over here in the UK, we think it's weird but I'm open to anything delicious, I don't flock with the sheep!<br /><br />This looks so yummy and I'm dying to try it but no ice cream maker. This makes me sad. It's on my kitchen wishlist with a billion other things. lol<br /><br />Time is flying for me too. I just turned 31 late May and I still feel like a teenager in my head. Hell, I even have dreams where I'm supposed to be at school and wake up in the middle of the night thinking 'what?!"<br /><br />-Lisa.<br /><a href="http://www.sweet2eatbaking.com/" rel="nofollow">Sweet 2 Eat Baking</a>

    Congrats on your 6 year anniversary at the deli! It's funny where life takes us and the little lessons we learn in between =) This terrine looks gorgeous and I'm sure was just as tasty!
