If you love peanut butter but not the calories, this is the ice cream for you. I used peanut powder instead of peanut butter. If you're not concerned about the calories, check out my substitutions below. Head over to Nadia's Kitchen Creations to watch me make it.
1 pinch of salt. Omit if using a salted peanut butter powder
1 tsp of vanilla extract or scrape 1/4 of a vanilla pod
1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar
3 cups of 2% milk or higher OR half-half OR non-dairy milk substitute*
1 whole egg, beaten
2-3 tbsp of peanut butter (at the end)
Add milk, sugar & salt to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously with a whisk for 5 minutes to make sure that sugar is fully dissolved.
Add the egg, whisking quickly at the same time, until the mixture starts to thicken. 5-10 minutes.
Add Peanut butter powder to the mix, continuing to whisk. Keep whisking for another 5 minutes. The mixture will continue to thicken. Take off of the heat.
Using a fine strainer, strain into a heat proof bowl. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap or wax paper (shiny side up). Making sure it touches the surface of the custard, to prevent a skin from forming.
Can be left in fridge for 2 days. Make sure the mixture is cooled completely before freezing. If not the freezing may take double the amount of time or more.
Follow the directions on your ice cream maker and enjoy!
* The higher the fat content (peanut butter, milks), the creamier/smoother the final product will be.
**You can substitute the peanut powder (I used unsalted, no sugar added) for peanut butter. For the drizzle I used unsalted, no sugar added peanut butter.
This is one of many versions of biscuits. My mom & sister had/have the better skill but I try. Isn't it weird how the same recipe turns out differently, when made by a different person? Another simple & delicious recipe for new bakers & kids to try out! Get them in the kitchen young! Watch me make it here.
