how to jazz up a homemade vanilla ice cream custard

I’ve made a rich vanilla custard (egg yolks, cream, sugar, vanilla) to put in the ice cream maker but looking in the freezer revealed that we already have loads of vanilla ice cream, (we also have a lot of chocolate. )

What I would really like to do is turn my vanilla base into a delicious peanut butter ice cream but I don’t think it will be as simple as just adding spoonfuls of peanut butter. Can any one advise what I can add to this base to make another flavour of delicious homemade ice cream?

One of favourites is fudge chunk ice cream - you use a vanilla ice cream base, start churning it and then about halfway through you add in chunks of fudge (or caramel) - either normal or the salted/flavoured ones you can get. You can also do that with broken up pieces of biscuit - like shortbread, oreo, digestives etc

Add some biscoff spread once churned and just swirl it through (couldn't you do the same with peanut butter?

My favourite is a glug of brandy and then some scrunched up brulee sugar added near the end of the churning. Yummy.

Chopped preserved ginger and honey? Chocolate chunks and cherries in brandy? Candied fruits? (Make your own with orange/grapefruit peel.) Honeycomb/cinder toffee?

Make a raspberry sauce and swirl it through for raspberry ripple.

Brown bread ice-cream is gorgeous. Make bread crumbs, mix them with brown sugar and toast then. Then break them up and stir them through the vanilla ice cream before freezing. Gorgeous crunchy caramelised flavour.

I stir in lemon curd and crushed meringues, but that's not what you're looking for. Tis delicious though.

Swirl in some finely chopped walnuts or pecans and some maple syrup.

Puree some strawberries and then add that.

Or some semi-pureed raspberries, broken merangues pieces and mini marshmallows mixed through.

Or chopped banana and caramel sauce.
