No Churn Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

It has been so miserably hot here. I know - I shouldn't complain as people in the south and even Midwest have it so much worse.  But we are not used to humidity in the high 80% - it is stifling and there have been days where there has been NO ocean breeze to move the air, even a little bit.  Ugh!

And when it's too hot to cook or bake or even eat (!), what better use of energy than to indulge in a cooling frozen treat!  This is truly delicious.  I cut the calories a little by using Swerve confectioner's sugar that has NO calories.  The taste didn't suffer at all, in fact I think I like it better than the first time I made it with regular powdered sugar.

If you like peanut butter and chocolate (and who doesn't?!?), you just HAVE to make this ice cream!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

adapted from Created by Diane

2 c. heavy cream
1 - 14 oz. can sweetened condensed coconut milk
1/2 c. peanut butter  (split in half - 1/4 c for the ice cream and 1/4 c for the crumble)
1/4 c. Swerve confectioner's sugar (zero calories )
1/4 c. Enjoy Life (dairy free) mini chocolate chips

Chill the mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for at least 3 hours - I like to do it overnight.

Mix 1/4 c. of the peanut butter with the confectioner's sugar until the mixture is almost dry and crumbly.  Add an extra tablespoon or two if needed to help "dry out" the peanut butter so it's not a liquid.  You want it kind of dry.  Set aside.

Whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form - 2-3 minutes.  With a chilled bowl you won't need more than 3 minutes (and you don't want it to turn to butter!)

Pour in the sweetened condensed milk and 1/4 cup of the peanut butter and mix on low until well combined.

Place half of the ice cream in an ice cream freezer tub (I really love the Tovolo tubs on Amazon).  Then sprinkle half of the peanut butter crumble over the top and half of the mini chips.  Pour the rest of the ice cream into the container and top with the remaining peanut butter crumble and mini chips.

Yes those are a plethora of mini chocolate chips and peanut butter "fluff" chunks.  It's sheer heaven!

Freeze for at least 4 hours and ENJOY!  This may be my new favorite flavor (until the next one!)

What is left to say...... but YUMMMMMMMM!!!!
