Every summer I debate whether I should invest in an ice cream maker or not. As soon as our weather hits a steady 90 degrees or above, I suddenly find myself craving the cold, sweet, and creamy texture of ice cream all the time! But then, the thought of having to leave my cool air conditioned home and having to expose myself to the scorching heat outside… is it really worth it? Sometimes I’ll make myself a smoothie with the frozen fruit in the freezer, but its just not the sammee! Am I right?
Well today, today I found a solution for all of us who make it through the summer without an ice cream making machine. This ice cream recipe requires no churning or ice cream making machine of any sort, (although I did use my kitchen aid for convenience, a handy old whisk will do the same job) and is just as creamy and soft as the ice cream you know and love. I chose to make peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream because they are my boyfriend’s two most favorite flavors, and honestly this ice cream tastes just like the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup filling too!
