Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Everyone knows someone who has an unhealthy obsession with ice cream. Everyone knows someone who has a near-addiction to peanut butter. What would happen if we introduced those two people? Probably this amazingly delicious and easy peanut butter ice cream. There are so many recipes out there that call for eggs and sugar and boiling and whisking and, let’s be honest, just too much work for a little bowl of ice cream. Makes you think, “might as well just go to the store.” But not this ice cream, no-sir-ee! Just 5 ingredients and less than 30 seconds of hands-on prep time makes it the easiest ice cream you will ever find. I love it with these grilled banana boats. Something about the mix of peanut butter and bananas makes you feel like a kid again.

2 cups of Half and Half
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup wildflower honey
1/4 cup sugar
salt to taste

6 servings
Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 45 minutes

In a blender, combine the half and half, peanut butter, honey, sugar, and about a pinch of salt. Blend until it is all very smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl and cover, then let it sit in the refrigerator for about an hour until it is cold.

Pour the chilled peanut butter mixture into your ice cream maker and make according to your Aroma Ice Cream Maker instructions, churning for about 45 minutes. At this point it should resemble the texture of soft-serve. Either eat it as is, or transfer into a container and let set in the freezer until it has reached the desired texture. Enjoy on its own or on top of other desserts, like these grilled banana boats!
