Can you use regular milk for this ice cream recipe?

You can. It should set up just the same. I like to use almond milk because it’s what I prefer to drink. It has a great taste and tends to be lower calorie and fat than other milk options. 

What other fruit could you use in this simple ice cream recipe?

  What makes this ice cream recipe so great? You can switch it up a bit and try out other fruit combinations as well. Frozen peaches, cherries, and strawberries are always the right choice, and if the peanut butter doesn’t go well with any of those, omit the fruit.
