Peanut Butter Ice Cream

The goal of the perfect nut ice cream often seems elusive. Despite various efforts we do not seem to have technology capable of grinding nuts to the creamy texture we desire. Fortunately there is no shortage of smooth and creamy peanut butter available and we were able to make a fabulously rich ice cream. It’s important to get high quality peanut butter without any added salt, sugar, or oils. And also make sure it is super smooth. The first tub we bought was sold as smooth but still had some small chunks.

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 250 ml double cream
  • 450g smooth peanut butter (no salt and no sugar)
  • milk

The preparation was roughly along the lines of our traditional family recipe. Since the peanut butter is already super smooth, you don’t need to do a lot of work. (Apart from the usual cranking!)

The texture was perfectly smooth and creamy and the flavour unbeatable. This recipe comes highly recommended.
