Confession! I am addicted to peanut butter. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Sometimes, I do. Now I have a new way to satisfy my peanut butter crazings cravings – in ice cream! Peanut Butter Ice Cream is the best of both worlds – it’s sweet and salty and oh so creamy!

I’d like to think that calories don’t count when you’re incorporating peanut butter into ice cream because of the added protein.

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 peanut butter. 
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – Sweetened condensed milk is key to this no churn ice cream. It makes it delightfully sweet!

How to Make Peanut Butter Ice Cream

You’re just a few steps away from rich, creamy peanut buttery goodness!

  1. In a large bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

  2. Blend in sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter. Optional: fold in chocolate chips or peanut butter cups.

  3. Pour into loaf pan.

  4. Freeze 2+ hours or overnight – if you can wait that long! (4+ for full size loaf pan).

If you want to speed up the process, you can use an ice cream machine. I have an attachment for my stand mixer if we want a quick fix. The Peanut Butter Ice Cream mix before it’s frozen is so good you can hardly resist licking it off the spoon!
