Homemade Peanut Butter Ice Cream Recipe

A delicious homemade peanut butter ice cream recipe made with real creamy peanut butter, sugar, milk, and heavy cream.

What’s better than homemade ice cream made with real creamy peanut butter? If you are a peanut butter lover, sometimes you don’t need much more. 🙂

The ingredients listed are made for for a 1.5 quart electric ice cream maker, but you can also use your freezer and you will have similar results.

This is a special dessert recipe for children and any adult who cannot get enough peanut butter.

My son asked me to make this recipe again, even though he hasn’t finished eating the first batch! He also notes that a sprinkle of salt on top of the ice cream tastes great because you get a sweet and salty combination.

Note:  This recipe is for a 1.5 quart electric ice cream maker.

This ice cream maker is similar to the one I use to make homemade ice cream. Mine is just an older version but the same brand and size.
