Decadent Peanut Butter Soy Ice Cream
- Ready In:
- 2 1⁄3 cups soymilk
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter chips (optional) or 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- In a large saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, soy milk, and peanut butter.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking frequently, and boil whisking constantly for one minute; remove from heat.
- Whisk several large spoonfuls of hot milk mixture into egg, then whisk egg back into saucepan of hot milk.
- Return saucepan to heat and cook over medium flame, whisking constantly, until mixture returns to a boil. It will have thickened slightly.
- Refrigerate until cold (I first cool by carefully putting the pan into a sinkful of cold water). The cooking time does not take the cooling time into account.
- Freeze mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions. Add chips towards the end of the freezing process.

Oh, boy, this is fantastic! Rich, creamy, and decadent. Recipe makes a small amount, so I would suggest doubling it. The custard is very thick before freezing, and would even be good served as a pudding. I added some mini chocolate chips but really, I think it's better without. My first job was making ice cream in an upscale ice cream shop and I've never liked the way commercial chocolate chips get hard and crunchy in ice cream. But I'm picky that way. This is also a great kid-friendly dessert. I'm always on the lookout for additional sources of protein for my skinny, picky 5 year-old and this fits the bill. The finished product is very rich, the soy equivalent of Haagen-Dazs. I've tried most commercial brands of soy ice cream and this is just as good, if not better. I used plain soymilk and creamy (not natural) peanut butter. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I'll make this one often!
