No-Churn Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, #FoodieExtravaganza

Do you believe in angels? Many Americans according to a 2011 CBS poll do believe in angels.  (Let me know if you find anything more current.) Clouds, feathers and birdsongs remind me of angels. Nature lifts me to an ethereal element. It’s like a heavenly intervention for my busy mind  - an endless worry world revolving around SEOs and social media ratings.

How does peace whisper to you? I’m always open to picking up serenity tips. (Especially ones that work!)

Easy to make and eat!

At any rate, have you ever wondered about the diet of an angel? I imagine it would be something light, fluffy and sweet. Perhaps angel food cake, ice cream and whipped cream? Maybe I’m projecting. The food of the angels could be something super healthy like the oh-so popular in California green juice! (Ugh.) Well, whatever the dietary practices of angels are, I can assure you the No-Churn Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream recipe I discovered is heaven-sent! Four ingredients, six easy steps and an overnight in the freezer yields one divine dessert.

Creamy vanilla ice cream studded with chocolate peanut butter minis.

July is National Ice Cream Month. (Along with bison and baked beans according to the experts at The Nibble.)  I have the good fortune of an invite to celebrate ice cream at an online Foodie Extravaganza Party. Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month to celebrate the food of the month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you!
