1. In a medium bowl, stir the peanut butter, sugar, and
salt with a whisk until smooth. Add the milk and stir
until smooth and the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the
half-and-half and vanilla extract. Cover and refrigerate
until well chilled, preferably overnight.
2. Assemble the Mix It In™ Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker
with paddle secured and dispenser handle in its
upright position. Turn on and pour in the chilled base.
Churn until the desired serving consistency is
achieved, 20 to 25 minutes. If ice cream is not thick
enough, pour back into the freezer bowl and continue
mixing until desired consistency is reached, checking
every few minutes. The ice cream will have a soft,
creamy texture.
3. Serve in cups or cones, adding toppings while
dispensing ice cream.
