Peanut Butter Ice Cream Ingredients

Ice Cream is so simple to make. Most of my recipes, like this one, require just three ingredients!

  • Heavy Cream – Heavy cream is the foundation for this recipes. It gives this peanut butter ice cream an incredibly creamy consistency!
  • Peanut Butter – Adds a salty flavor that is oh so craveable! I like to use creamy peanut butter, but you can use crunchy for a bit of texture if you prefer. For best results, avoid natural.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – Sweetened condensed milk is key to this no churn ice cream. It makes it delightfully sweet!
