Our oldest DD doesn't like peanut butter. She always has her PB&J sandwiches without the "PB" - we call them "just jelly" sandwiches. But the peanut butter ice cream in David Lebovitz's book The Perfect Scoop is so sweet and yummy, that even she couldn't resist its charms. She says it's one of her favorite ice creams, which is saying a lot for a kid who doesn't like peanut butter.
The recipe is a cinch to make - combine 5 ingredients in a blender, swirl them up, let the mixture sit in the fridge until really cold and then churn in your ice cream maker. It's so easy! Of course, you should plan on making hot fudge to go with it......peanut butter ice cream just begs for hot fudge. Oh, and do a double batch - that's also a must.
DD's birthday is at the end of this month, and she's already requested peanut butter ice cream to go with her cake. I can't wait to bust out the blender again & make another double-batch of this great ice cream!
