I’m a big fan of kitchen gadgets. My sous vide, slow cooker, waffle maker, stand mixer and food processor all are regularly used and beloved. They make things so much easier and cooking that much more fun. For whatever reason, one gadget I didn’t enjoy was an ice cream maker. After one use, and buying plenty of ice and salt, is was graciously donated to a better home. It may make great ice cream, but requires a lot of space and effort. If you want to make homemade ice cream, but without the hassle, then this No Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream is perfect for you.
Tips for the best No Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream
You’d be surprised how easy homemade no churn ice cream can be. Simply create a creamy milk, egg, brown sugar and peanut butter custard base. Then fold in homemade whipped cream and freeze until firm. That’s it, about 10 minutes of hands-on work is all you need. The trick is the fresh whipped cream. The custard base would freeze into a solid block otherwise. But with whipped cream, the airiness creates a smooth ice cream texture, all without an ice cream maker.
This No Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream has plenty of peanut butter infused throughout. I used Peter Pan® Simply Ground Peanut Butter. It’s creamy with just a bit of crunch, adding nice texture to the ice cream. It’s made from simple, wholesome ingredients, without any artificial flavors or preservatives. Peanut butter isn’t just for classic PB&J, try it with healthy snacks or as a flavor addition to create unique recipes.
A fun twist on classic homemade ice cream, this peanut butter no churn ice cream is a perfect way to enjoy the summer. Whether it’s for your family or a summer gathering you’re hosting, it’s sure to be a hit.
