Plain Peanut Butter Ice Cream with no chips, cups, or swirls

wandergirl Aug 28, 2013 03:18 PM

I used to get a fantastic peanut butter ice cream at The Viking ice cream parlor in Oquinquit, Maine. It was smooth peanut butter ice cream with no added peanut butter cups, fudge swirls, or chocolate chips and it was wonderful.

The parlor closed many years ago unfortunately but I found a great substitute in J.P. Licks' peanut butter hard yogurt. Lately though, J.P. Licks has only been offering the peanut butter with chips so I am again on the hunt for a plain peanut butter ice cream option. J.P. Licks does a soft serve peanut butter, which is pretty good, but not the same.

I've searched high and low around New England and I've found no stand that can resist adding something to the peanut butter ice cream. Has anyone run into a plain peanut butter ice cream anywhere in the area? I'm in Greater Boston but willing to drive! Thank you.

              You could buy sweet cream or even vanilla ice cream and mix peanut butter into it, just as they probably did at JP Licks. You might get a sore wrist, but it would be worth it.

                Well, it's not ice cream, but I really like the peanut butter yogurt at Pinkberry. Salty and sweet at the same time, and really good with fresh fruit on top (like PB&J!)
