Chocolate Chip Custard Ice Cream (Eggless)

Its been very long time since I have a pack of custard powder in my pantry,after making fruit custard a few times. And fruit custard is something that I make as a last dessert because this was a very frequent dessert made at home by my mom and so kinda got bored with it. However,kids love custard and so sometimes make for them. What next could be done with custard powder, that's the time I thought to make an ice cream with this powder and added kids favorite chocolate chips in them which added a nice crunch in between the smooth ice cream. This is an eggless ice cream and can be whipped in minutes. I have used vanilla custard powder but you can definitely try with different flavors of custard powder. The color of the ice cream is same as vanilla ice cream which I posted sometime back. Do try this out  before winter sets in.

Author~ Julie

Ingredients
custard powder 2 tbsp
milk 1 cup + 1/2 cup divided
whipping cream  1 cup(200 ml)
sugar 1/2 -3/4 cup
vanilla essence 1 tsp

chocolate chips mini  2tbsp


Method
  • Make a thick paste using 1/2 cup milk and custard powder. Boil the remaining 1 cup milk and bring to a boil. Add the sugar as per sweet tooth(add more than required as the sweetness may reduce once mixed with whipping cream). Pour in the custard mixed milk and keep stirring on low flame so that the custard doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. when the custard coats the back of the spoon put off flame. Leave to cool completely,put a cling wrap on top layer of the custard so that there is no film forming on top.

  • Now put a bowl and the beater blades in freezer for 2 hours. Also chill the whipping cream. Now pour the whipping cream in the chilled bowl and beat till soft peaks.Add in vanilla extract.

  • Gently fold the custard with the whipped cream. Freeze for 2 hours (I just break the ice by adding this in a blender and pulsed it but if you have ice cream maker,proceed as per the manual instructions) then remove and add the chocolate chips,mix well. Freeze again for 6 hours -10 hours until set. Scoop and serve chilled with a drizzle of chocolate syrup !!
NOTES
* You can make this ice cream without adding chocolate chips or you can always add some chopped nuts or add butterscotch chips too.
* You can use different flavors of custard powder other than vanilla. I have used vanilla custard powder.
