Ice cream is a staple in our house.  Every single one of us would be happy to eat it all day.  I always try to keep healthy options available for us and for our 3 year old daughter, so you will almost always find our latest banana ice cream creation in the freezer (next to all the soup I have frozen to get us through the year).


After yet another request for banana ice cream from my Munchkin, and a nagging craving for a truckload of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups I decided to make a decadent ice cream treat by adding peanut butter and chocolate.  This is kind of my own version of Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream.  Score!

Munchkin is ecstatic and spinning in circles all over the house.  That may have a tad bit more to do with the sugar that the excitement, but I'll just go with it!  Just the perfect amount of peanut butter flavor and speckled chocolate pieces grace this fabulously soft and silky "ice cream".

Exactly what I needed and exactly what you need too.  Enjoy!

      Has anyone tried using the powdered peanut butter?

      1. I haven't but... I bet if you added water and a little sweetener to the PB it would be FAB! Please let us know how it works for you. I used to keep a ton of PB2 in the house and then I found a way to cheat with it and I stopped keeping it. It is sooooo good!

      2. what is powdered peanut butter? where can you get it? what do you do with it? I am almost 70 years old and have never heard of it.

      3. It is called PB2 from Bell Plantation. http://www.bellplantation.com/

        It is powdered peanut butter without all the preservatives, fat and calories. It is popular in the dieting communities. You add liquid and a pinch of sweetener to make peanut butter as you need it. It is quite scrumptious! Hope that helps.

      Ok.. I tried using my PB2 tonight and adding water to make it more like real peanut butter an once it is frozen it had a lot of icey crystals. Plus it was taking a lot of the power to even start tasting like peanut butter. Since discovering this recipe I have been on cloud nine having a little every night and playing with the ingredients .... So using regular PB is better than using the PB2 powder. Happy eating!

    8. Nothing wrong with real PB in moderation. In fact, it's healthy and can help you lose weight.

      1. Ha, thanks Sue. They are pretty simple. The naturally sweet is my favorite part.
