Homemade ice cream is one of my favorite summer treats.

I do like going out for ice cream with my family on occasion, but there’s just something special about making it yourself. Unlike at an ice cream shop, the flavor possibilities are endless. You can make whatever kind you want and invent flavors that haven’t been dreamed up before.

It takes great patience as you wait for the ice cream to solidify in the freezer. It feels like an eternity. But then, it’s finally ready. And it’s so creamy, so good.

I can’t imagine summer without homemade ice cream.

This chocolate peanut butter ice cream is adapted from a recipe in the Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book. We’re big Ben & Jerry’s fans, as my husband grew up in their hometown of Burlington, VT. We visited the Ben & Jerry’s factory this summer, where we got to sample a new experimental flavor. Their ice cream is so rich and creamy, and the recipes in the book are simple to recreate with an ice cream maker at home.
