A dessert recipe?  On a Tuesday?

Yes, we are mixing things up here today and that’s because we are celebrating the fact that one of my favorite bloggers, Jenna of Jenna’s Everything Blog, will be having her first baby – a girl!! – in just a few short weeks!

Jenna has been tracking her pregnancy with a weekly post that describes all of her emotions, signs, symptoms….pretty much all things baby-related and I’ve been living vicariously through her following along voraciously as well as ogling her adorable baby bump each week!  She remains one of the sweetest, cutest, funniest, and most supportive bloggers out there and I know she is going to be an amazing mom.

Since it’s a pretty well known fact that you can’t exactly have a party without any ice cream, I thought I would bring some peanut butter and honey ice cream to the festivities!  Both flavors of this cold treat really shine through so that with each spoonful you’ll go back on forth on whether it’s the honey or the peanut butter that you taste more.  And when they meld together….well that is just a bite of perfection.

Here’s to you Jenna!! I’m SO excited for you!

Thanks so much to Veronica of Veronica’s Cornucopia for getting us all together to celebrate!

Peanut Butter and Honey Ice Cream
Makes 1 quart, adapted from Love and Olive Oil


  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter


  1. Pour one cup of the heavy cream in a heatproof bowl.  Next this bowl inside a larger bowl that is filled with ice-water.  Place a fine-meshed sieve over the top of both bowls.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the remaining cup of heavy cream, the almond milk, sugar, honey and salt.  Cook gently over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture just starts to steam.  Remove from heat.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks.  Slowly whisk in the warm cream mixture to the egg yolks, 1/3 cup at a time, until the yolks are warm and about half the warm cream has been added.  Pour this mixture back into the saucepan with the warm cream.  Return the pan to medium heat, still stirring, until the mixture thickens slightly and will coat the back of a spoon, about 5-7 minutes or until it reaches 165-170 degrees F.  Do NOT let it come to a boil.
  4. Pour the mixture through the sieve and into the cold cream.  Add in the vanilla and stir until cool.  Cover with plastic wrap, carefully pressing down onto the surface of the cream.  This will prevent a skin from forming. Place in the refrigerator to cool overnight.
  5. The next day, churn the cream base according to the manufacturer’s directions.  While it is churning, add the peanut butter to a piping bag fitted with a medium size round tip.  When the ice cream is at soft serve consistency, pipe the peanut butter into the machine while it is churning.  Transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container and freeze overnight or until firm.

    This is one of my favorite types of ice creams! I like to go all Elvis on it sometimes and add banana too.

  17. Mmm what a tasty sounding combination!

  18. Eileen says:

    Peanut butter and honey in ice cream form?? I may never eat an ordinary sandwich again. 🙂 And what if you added a bunch of diced banana? Or maybe some last-minute graham cracker crumbs? Or both? OH MAN.

  30. Jenna says:

    Joanne, you sweet thang you! This ice cream looks delicious! And you’re just too nice (sniff sniff) . . . (now you’ve gone and made the pregnant lady cry!)

  31. This sounds incredible! And we have to have ice cream at the shower 🙂

  32. This post is torture for me since I’m allergic to dairy, and I happen to adore peanut butter and honey together! Sigh. But it looks fabulous!

  33. Katie says:

    Aww! What a sweet tribute. I love the idea of mixing some honey into that peanut butter ice cream. Sounds divine!

  34. marie says:

    Peanut butter & honey is one of my most favorite combos ever! I would clink on the link to see if I am ready to be a parent but ooops, too late.

  39. Hotly Spiced says:

    A virtual baby shower! What a great idea. I think peanut butter and honey go very well together, in fact, there are some in this family that put those two on sandwiches.

  42. I love Jenna’s blog!!! What a fitting shower snack…looks delicious. I love pb and honey!

  43. Carolyn Jung says:

    Nutty and sweet, but not TOO sweet. A perfect ice cream flavor. You should make gallons and sell it. 😉

  44. cakewhiz says:

    no party is ever complete without ice cream and this ice cream looks delightful! this would be the highlight of any shower 😉

  45. I LOVE peanut butter ice cream and don’t understand why it does not seem to appear in stores at all. I should just make my own but I’m too lazy .. I wish I could reach through the screen and grab that bowl instead!

  46. kyleen says:

    Peanut butter is where it’s at. This looks amazing. I can hear my new ice cream machine calling my name…

    A gorgeous ice cream flavor, perfect for pre-fall and for a baby shower.

  51. daphne says:

    did I actually missed this? noo. I want a scoop- perfect idea.. I’m even thinking of ribbons of chocolate or chocolate chips in this!

  52. Johanna GGG says:

    nice flavour combo – and if Jenna has been off her food while pregnant like quite a few people I know then she will love some yummy ice cream when the baby is born and she is starving

  53. Mary says:

    This looks perfectly creamy and I already know that I would love the flavors! I love PB and Honey together.

  54. Hannah says:

    Ice cream is always appropriate, on a Tuesday or any other day of the week (or any other day of the year!) I actually have a bit of vegan honey to experiment with right now, so I’m seriously digging the honey-nut combo. Classic, and yet it never seems to get old.

  55. Reeni Pisano says:

    This is such a cute idea and I love the ice cream! Two of my favorites rolled into one irresistible treat!

  56. I think anything peanut butter is my favoritest thing in the whole wide world.

  57. peanut butter in ice cream is a match made in heaven
    my ice cream eating days are slowly winding down.
    well my hips will be happy, but not my soul–I hate to see summer go.
    snow, rain and cold is on the way. boo

  58. Kerstin says:

    Yum, my mouth is watering – this looks fantastic!

  59. Cara says:

    You know what? I don’t think I’ve ever seen ice cream at a baby shower. That definitely needs to change. I’m glad you are starting this revolution 🙂

  60. Yum!! I love peanut butter and honey together. This has got to be the best ice cream flavor idea. I love it! I need to break out my ice cream maker again 😀

  61. I have made cookies with peanut butter and honey which were fantastic. I bet this is too!

  62. Ranjani says:

    this looks amazing – my mouth actually filled with saliva when I looked at the photo…
