Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream

It’s Peanut Butter Bash time again, this time we are mixing our favourite nut butter with jelly or jam, (depending on which country you live in). Even though it is still a little early in the year I decided to make ice cream, yeah I know its still cold outside. But I had a stack of cream that needed using up and I thought what could be better than Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream. Ice cream is a great way to use up a surplus of cream.

So back to this peanut butter and jelly ice cream. It’s an easy no egg base that comes together in minutes and only requires a few hours in the fridge to chill. So as long as your ice cream bowl has been frozen before hand in the freezer then this ice cream comes together in just a few hours. Which is a huge advantage over egg yolk bases which generally as a rule require at least 6 hours chilling and another 3 – 4 hours freezing.

To me PB&J is the ultimate American flavour, I remember as a kid being fascinated by American TV shows which showed people eating this in a sandwich. They don’t really sell American style jelly in this country and I have never come across grape jelly, unless I am in a speciality foreign food shop. So when I was in America for the first time many years ago I made a point of trying it and I was hooked. I always loved peanut butter but add it to grape jelly and its amazing.

But grape is so hard to come by here in the UK that I have to use strawberry instead, which is still amazing. So it’s not all bad! So if you want a little kick of nostalgia if you are an American then this will float your boat and if you are not and love peanut butter then you must try this combination because it is oh so good.
