No Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream

No Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream is pretty magical. All you need is some whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, and some smooth and creamy peanut butter.

Drizzle this peanut butter ice cream with some chocolate sauce and garnish it with roasted salted peanuts for a salty sweet treat.

I love making churned ice cream, but for convenience, no churn ice cream is pretty much a revelation. All you need is two cups of heavy whipping cream, a 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, and whatever add-ins you like. In this case, I added in a half cup of peanut butter, a teaspoon of vanilla, and a pinch of salt.

No Churn Peanut Butter Ice Cream

How to Make No-Churn Ice Cream:

  • To make no-churn ice cream, whip two cups of heavy whipping cream to stiff peaks. 
  • In another bowl, mix together the sweetened condensed milk with whatever flavorings or mix-ins (such as crushed cookies, candies, or flavorings) you prefer. 
  • Mix some of the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture to lighten it up. Next, fold the rest of the whipping cream into the milk mixture and then pour the mixture into a freezer safe container (I like to use a bread pan because it makes it easy to scoop the ice cream) and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for at least six hours. P.S. This is my favorite ice cream scooper

Suggestions for topping this peanut butter ice cream: 

  • Roasted salted peanuts
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Chopped mini peanut butter cups
  • Peanut butter chips
  • Chocolate chips
  • Toffee chips
  • Whipped cream
  • Blueberry or Boysenberry syrup (like a PB&J!)
  • Reese's Pieces
  • Crushed peanut butter cookies
The ice cream came out smooth and creamy, and super easy to scoop straight from the freezer. The peanut butter in the ice cream may have something to do with that, as well as the fact that it held its shape well after being scooped. This ice cream would be perfect for ice cream cones. 

I heard a lot of "OMG this is so good" from my taste testers. 

I love to serve this ice cream with a little demitasse spoon. It makes it last longer!

P.S. If you love the idea of no churn ice cream, be sure to try this Birthday Cake Ice Cream. It has sprinkles!
