REESE PB and Chocolate Spread | Easy Ice Cream Recipe Kitchenaid

[image_with_animation image_url=”14747″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self” img_link=”http://amzn.to/1RavVqM”]

REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread is addictive! It is like Nutella with a peanut butter kick! We recently received a couple bottles of this heavenly spread. OMG! Seriously, the first thing I did was dig my spoon into it and ate it straight up. Please don’t judge! I’m sure it is just like eating raw cookie dough. Anyways, Vancouver recent Indian Summer had me craving ice cream! So, I thought I would whip up an easy REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread ice cream recipe with my ice cream maker bowl attachment for my Kitchen Aid that my husband gave me many, many Christmas ago.

This simple vanilla ice cream recipe is so easy and simple. It only requires four ingredients! And there are so many options to improvise! Just like adding a few spoonful of REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread! Quick and delicious! No cooking or any custard base required!

The only thing that requires pre-planning is freezing my Kitchenaid ice cream maker bowl attachment a day earlier.

Easy Ice Cream Recipe with REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whipping cream

  • 2 tablespoons REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread
  • pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  • Add REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread to the condensed milk.
  • Add whipping cream and above ingredients to a blender and blitz. I like to use my Magic Bullet for small projects.

  • Add in bits of REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup if desired
  • Freeze overnight.

Once the ice cream starts to freeze over you can already enjoy this. It is soft and tastes almost like a malt. If you prefer harder consistencies, then freeze overnight.

Earnest Ice Cream opens their second new location in Mount Pleasant on Quebec Street and 2nd Avenue. Proving itself to be one of the best ice cream shops in Vancouver with long lines, owners, Ben and Erica have opened doors in the middle of Winter. But really Vancouver’s winter is hardly that of New York or that below freezing with piercing winds outside.

The new Earnest Ice Cream location is where Organic Lives used to be. Now, it serves as an ice cream production facility in the back and retail shop in the front with new exciting flavors to follow. Both Earnest Ice Cream dessert shops will now be open six days a week. Ice cream fans will no long be limited to the old constrained hours.

Rain or Shine Ice Cream Vancouver (Kitsilano) | Coconut Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Rain or Shine Ice Cream Vancouver (Kitsilano) | Coconut Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Rain or shine ice cream vancouver

 

 

Often the sun couldn’t decide to rain or shine in Vancouver but at least there is Rain or Shine Ice Cream Vancouver in Kitsilano. The name is a bit tongue in cheek and fitting for Vancouver weather. This ice cream parlor is located across from Tractors Foods on the corner of West 4th and Cypress Street. Owners Josie Fenton and Blair Casey created Rain or Shine Ice Cream with a goal to serve good quality ice cream made without artificial flavors, corn syrup. Ingredients are sourced locally and seasonally or imported organic and fair trade.

 

 
Rain or shine ice cream vancouver
There is wide variety of flavors with ten “keepers” and “seasonal flings”.

 

Rain or Shine Ice Cream Flavors – Keeps

  • Chocolate
  • Vanilla
  • Salted Caramel
  • Coffee-Toffee
  • London Fog
  • Honey Lavender
  • Blueberry Balsamic
  • Peanut Butter
  • Coconut Chocolate Chunk (vegan)
  • Cracked Mint

 

We tried the Coconut Chocolate Chunk today and it is creamy and light. The chocolate chunks was great for bite and also to cut the sweetness of the coconut. The waffle cone on the hand was to die for. Super light and crunchy. I can only imagine how delicious Taco Tuesday would be – Ice Cream Tacos in a waffle shell.

 

The branding of Rain or Shine Ice Cream comes from Glasfurd & Walker – brand creation and communication for Ask for Luigi,  Pidgin, The Juice Truck Juice Cleanse.

Earnest Ice Cream has finally opened their very own brick and motar shop on Fraser street, after a year selling to farmer’s market and various food outlets around Vancouver. They are known for quality ingredients, delicious consistencies of rich creaminess. Earnest ice cream flavors include London Fog, Whiskey Hazelnut, Strawberry Rhubarb. My favorite is Lavender and Matchstick Coffee Espresso Flakes. It is richly aromatic both sensually and tastefully.
