I received the Kitchen-Aid Ice Cream Maker for my birthday, something I’ve always wanted but never wanted to pay for. With my greatest of birthday wishes fulfilled, I jumped right into coming up with the craziest ice cream ideas I could think up. Sure, I could try vanilla or chocolate, but where’s the fun in that? Instead I’m hoping to make a french vanilla ice cream with a peanut ginger swirl and puffed ramen noodle.
First step? Finding the right sauce to use. Below is an adapted version of a FoodTV recipe. I added slightly more peanut butter and a little sugar to cut the spice without removing it completely. Grating the ginger is fine, as opposed to using a microplane, because the blender takes care of the rest for you.
Peanut Ginger Dipping Sauce (adapted from FoodTV’s The Cookworks recipe)
- ½ cup Orange Juice
- 3 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
- 1/2-1 Tbsp Lime Juice
- 1 Tbsp EVOO
- 1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
- ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 1/2 tsp sugar
- 5 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
- 1 heaping Tbsp. grated Ginger
Place all ingredients into a blender and puree. Let sit for 30 minutes at room temperature (in the fridge if not using right away).
