Peanut butter ice cream

July 17th, 2012

It feels like 4000 degrees outside and the only thing that I feel like ingesting is water and ice cream. I haven’t been using my oven or stove much lately but ice cream is on my mind A LOT. So the other day, when I finally got a few minutes to myself, I looked at what ingredients I had. I saw the peanut butter staring back at me. Thunder struck and I started laughing like a villain (this all happened very quietly because I didn’t want to wake my baby boy).


Peanut butter ice cream


  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup + 2tbsp sugar
  • 1 ⅓ cup whole milk
  • 1 ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • Pinch fleur de sel (or coarse salt)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup peanut butter chips (optional)
  • ½ cup belgian milk chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Puree the peanut butter, sugar, milk, cream, saltand vanilla in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  2. Chill  the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator,  then freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. In a storage container, fold in the chips in the batter. (I never use my ice cream maker to mix in hard ingredients, just in case.)
