For June Dairy Month as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias, I made the BEST Easy Peanut Butter Cheesecake Ice Cream you’ll ever taste! Peanut Butter ice cream just got better – and you don’t need an ice cream machine!
It’s going to be 100 degrees today. Welcome June to the Sacramento area!
In fact, it’s been in the high 80s and 90s more days than I’d like to think about over the past month. I know this very well because we just got our first “summer” electricity bill. We had to run the air this month – it just doesn’t cool off enough at night before Jordan goes to bed to do the whole window-fan thing.
I guess our electric company has raised some of the rates or something because our bill for May was the same cost that we paid in JUNE of last year. You know, when it’s actually hot. I’m not looking forward to my bill next month. Or in August. I’m wondering if I should try to sell them a kidney, or if they’ll take cookies for payment?
I think we’ll be doing a lot of cold foods this summer – and eating a lot of ice cream. It’s a good thing that I made this on Friday – just in time to keep cool for the hot weekend.
Oh. My. Goodness people, this ice cream. Let’s skip ahead to the part where I tell you about it, mmkay? Because it’s seriously the BEST ice cream I’ve ever made.
A few months ago my friend Ashton made Strawberry Cheesecake Easy Ice Cream. It sounded SO good I knew I wanted to make a version for myself sometime this summer.

Now back to the most amazing ice cream you’ll ever taste. EVER.
Let’s talk components, shall we?
It’s easy ice cream – no machine needed. That means I used a can of sweetened condensed milk and a tub of whipped topping. I used fat-free for both of those – but you can use regular. You an also substitute two cups of heavy cream (whip it first) for the Cool Whip.
Then, to make it peanut butter cheesecake I added a block of cream cheese (low-fat) and some peanut butter.
And, cheesecake needs a crust, right? The “crust” on this cheesecake is made of chocolate covered graham cracker cookies. You know, like the Keebler ones. You crush them with some butter to make a crust-like mixture that you add to the ice cream. I also chopped up some peanut butter cups, because you can never go wrong with those!
Freeze it overnight and you have the most indulgent, peanut buttery, amazing, easy ice cream ever.
Seriously, this is OFF THE HOOK.
Who wants to smoosh their face in that?
