TIP OF THE DAY: Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream

We became overly fond of Ben & Jerry’s new Banana Greek Frozen Yogurt with Peanut Buttery Swirls. But after we finished the two pints sent to us by Ben & Jerry’s, we couldn’t find the flavor locally.

Necessity being the mother of invention, we experimented with making our own PB swirl ice cream. To please our friend Rose, we also made some pints with Nutella.

It’s easy to do, just by softening a plain pint of your favorite ice cream or frozen yogurt, and adding the swirl.



  • 1/2 cup peanut butter or Nutella
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 2 pints vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream (it is easier to work with two pints than one quart; you can try two different flavors to see which you prefer)
  • Optional: chopped peanuts or hazelnuts
  • Optional with peanut putter: 1 tablespoon sugar*

    *If you tend to like things on the sweet side, you may want to bring the peanut butter closer to the sweetness of the ice cream. We prefer the contrast, without the sugar.


    1. Combine the peanut butter, cream and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until smooth. Chill the mixture for an hour or longer.

    2. After the mixture is chilled, soften the ice cream on the kitchen counter until you can slide the contents out (use a knife to loosen the edges). Slice the ice cream horizontally into five circles.

    3. Repack the ice cream into the container, alternating the slices with spoonfuls of the peanut butter or Nutella mixture, along with a sprinkling of the optional nuts. Return to the freezer until ready to eat.
