Peppermint Ice Cream

10 Dec

I’d been coveting this recipe from The Pioneer Woman for peppermint ice cream… But with Rafe’s mouth in the state it was in, I needed to make something without any sharp bits, so no actual pieces of the candy in it.


  • 1.5 c coconut milk (from a can)
  • 1.5 c milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 c crushed peppermint candies
  • 1 c Splenda sugar blend
  • ~1 tsp peppermint essence
  • 4 egg yolks


  • Heat coconut milk and milk, along with sugar and vanilla, in medium pot. Add in peppermint candies and stir frequently, and bring to a simmer. Then add in splash of peppermint essence.
  • In a bowl, beat egg yolks until light yellow. Temper the eggs by slowing drizzling in the hot milk mixture, whisking all the while. Pour egg mixture back into pot and continue simmering for another ~5 min.
  • Then pour through a wire sieve into a metal bowl and let cool for ~10 min.
  • Pour into ice cream maker for complete cycle.
