Peanut butter Ice Cream

 In Dessert, Recipes

Peanut butter ice cream

As I mentioned last week in the Blueberry cheesecake ice cream post, my friend Karien and I went on a little ice cream adventure together when we decided to collaborate and create a few fabulous ice creams. One of my favourites was the peanut butter one which I may or may not have been eating straight out of the container. Seriously. If you like peanut butter (and if you don’t, why even are we friends?) this is something you HAVE to try!

This ice cream works incredibly well served in cones, as shown here, but I made some crêpes the other day which I filled with Nutella. To add even more indulgence, I topped the crepes with a scoop of the peanut butter ice cream. Man alive. I have never experienced such deliciousness. If there weren’t people around me, I would for realsies shove my face in my plate. I have been known to want as much deliciousness in my life as possible so I might be alone in this but just try it. So delicious!

    Thanks so much for this recipe which I can’t wait to try. I have had peanut butter ice cream before and loved it, but couldn’t find a recipe I could try until now. Nutella pancakes happen in our house every Saturday, so I will try it on them too!

    I..I..I… I want I want this so bad right now I can hardly talk. I, too, do not have an ice cream machine, but my anniversary is coming up, and I now know what I want.. 🙂
    What wonderful photos & mouthwatering recipe, as always 🙂

    Terribly sad when you don’t have an ice cream machine! Was all set to make it as I am peanut butter mad.

      Colleen, I know your predicament. That is why I’ve employed a friend with one as I also don’t. You can of course do this by hand by pouring the mixture into a freezer-proof dish and beating it every hour or so to break up the ice crystals until it’s frozen and soft.
