My dad said the only ice cream he has ever had that was creamier is Haagan-Dazs. My husband said I have achieved what others (including Ben & Jerry's) have not, ice cream that actually tastes like peanut butter!
One factor that I think is important for this recipe is what kind of peanut butter you like. This recipe does not specify which one to use. Only a few reviewers really acknowledged in their reviews what kind of peanut butter they used. I think that this recipe will probably come out very different based just on what kind of peanut butter used. For example, regular peanut butter already has sugar in it, varying amounts based on the brand too, and different kinds of oils/fats, whereas natural peanut butter is usually just peanuts and salt (sometimes not even salt). What our culture typically calls peanut butter is really a peanut-flavored spread. Natural peanut butter tastes like peanuts. It just comes down to personal preference.
I was shooting for a more natural peanut butter flavor in my ice cream. Therefore, I followed this recipe with only a few alterations that changed this recipe to fit our tastes. 1)I used 2% milk instead of whole milk. 2)I used natural peanut butter (ingredients were peanuts and salt), the entire 3/4 cup as is stated in the recipe. 3)I only used 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk because I didn't want the sweet taste to overpower the peanut taste. It was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I can't believe I made ice cream so creamy and tasty!
