tagalong ice cream

After making the Thin Mint-ish ice cream a few weeks ago, I decided that I wanted to try to make my favorite Girl Scout cookie into ice cream:  the Tagalong (or as they are now called, Peanut Butter Patties).

I wasn’t sure exactly if this was going to work for me, especially since I know Edy’s makes some darn good Tagalong ice cream.  But, I was pleasantly surprised at how good this came out.  However, next time I am going to make my own Tagalongs to crumble up into the ice cream!  (Check out Natalie’s Homemade Tagalongs… great minds think alike!)

TAGALONG ICE CREAM
Makes 1 Cool Whip container worth of ice cream (~3 cups).

1 can lite coconut milk (went a different route this time)
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almondmilk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup peanut flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup vanilla wafers, crushed (or other shortbread type cookie)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, whisk together coconut milk, almondmilk, sugar, vanilla, and salt until sugar is dissolved.

In a separate bowl, combine peanut flour and water and whisk until there are no more clumps.  Add to ice cream base and whisk until combined.

Pour ice cream base into your ice cream mixer and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.  It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to freeze.  Once almost completely frozen, add vanilla wafers and chocolate chips.

Remove from ice cream maker and store in a lidded container.  Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.  If you freeze it overnight, let the container sit out for 10 minutes before serving.

**If you do not have peanut flour, you can substitute in regular peanut butter.  You might want to add a little milk to it and whisk it together to thin it out a bit, but it might work just fine adding it right into the ice cream base.

This definitely doesn’t have a ton of peanut flavor, but I still think it tastes pretty darn good.  I also think I am going to switch back to using full fat coconut milk because it definitely wasn’t as creamy as some of the other ice creams I have made.

Again, this would be phenomenal with actual Tagalongs mixed it, but I wasn’t willing to sacrifice the few I have left for this recipe!  Use what you have, or again, make your own!
