Ice Cream, Heaven.

I have been making ice cream lately and I have to say, this time ooooooo giiiirrrrrrrl. Man, I love this ice cream! I shifted a recipe online so that this tasty treat wouldn’t be incredibly unhealthy. I used low-fat or no fat ingredients, however it still has a decent amount of sugar and 3 types of milk products. So without further adieu….

“Only in Dreams Ice Cream”

(Peanut Butter ice cream with fudge swirls and chocolate covered pretzels)

Ingredients:

1 c of 2%milk

3/4 c of no fat condensed sweet milk

1/2 no fat half and half

1/2 c sugar

3 eggs

3/4 c of crunch peanut butter

1 tsp of vanilla

chocolate covered pretzels ( add as much as you like)

hot fudge (add as much as you like)

Directions:

Mix sugar and eggs with an electric mixer. Place milk in a small sauce pan. Put on the  stove and let simmer.

Mixture should be thick

monitor closely, you do not want it to boil

Once milk is hot, pour into egg mixture. Whisk milk and egg mixture. The airier the mixture, the better. After mixing, place mixture back in sauce pot.

Stir constantly. It is thick enough when it sticks to the back of a metal spoon.

Once mixture is warm enough, transfer it back into your mixing bowl and add the peanut butter. Whisk peanut butter into mixture.

After peanut butter is mixed in, add milks and vanilla. Mix well, cover and place in fridge to cool.

If you want to speed up the process, place in the freezer.

After mixture is chilled, place in ice cream attachment for 19 minutes. Mix ice cream and add in chopped pretzels and fudge slowly. Once items are mixed evenly, remove ice cream and place in an air tight container. Let freeze over night. Because this recipe is low-fat the consistency is not as “hard” as normal ice cream. Its creamy but is a bit mushier.

chop pretzels into small piece

let mix for a total of 20 to 21 minutes.

After allowing it to freeze serve and enjoy!
