Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream – Chew Out Loud (Video)

Creamy and delicious, this easy six-ingredient mint chocolate chip ice cream is perfect for a hot summer’s day – or anytime!!

The first time I tried to make mint chocolate chip ice cream was a bit of a disaster, but also a good lesson for everyone who tries a new recipe.  Making sure that you have all of the ingredients is so important, but also making sure that you have the right ingredients can be helpful as well.  You see, the recipe I had at the time called for mint extract and some fresh mint.  I picked up spearmint extract and leaves, not thinking at ALL about the taste difference!  Mint is mint, right?  WRONG.  I do not like spearmint – at all – so I gave up and went back to the store and bought myself a HUGE container of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream instead.

That was many years ago, but I never made any attempt at this again, until this week. I tried this wonderful recipe from Amy at Chew Out Loud, and it was so easy and incredibly delicious!  You can learn more about Amy here. I will absolutely be heading back there; all of her recipes look amazing!

For this recipe, I used our Ice Cream Maker, of course!  Here’s some info for you:

Our compact Ice Cream Maker lets you create your favorite frozen treats any time you want. Use fresh, natural ingredients to mix up smooth, custom-flavored ice cream, custard, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet, and even frozen drinks. You’ll taste the quality—homemade ice cream is smoother, richer, creamier, and less expensive than store-bought. Just push a button to set the timer, add your ingredients, and you’ll have a frozen treat in 45 minutes or less—you can even peek through the clear lid to see it come together! Cover the bowl with the stretchy silicone lid to store it for later.

This recipe uses 5-6 ingredients, one of which is green food coloring. While I used it this time, I personally prefer not to use food coloring in recipes.  You can definitely leave it out, if you prefer.  Let’s jump right in!!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure peppermint extract, or to taste
  • 2-3 drops of green food coloring (optional)
  • 4-ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

Instructions

Please be sure to freeze your ice cream maker base for at least 24 hours prior to using.

Pour milk, heavy cream and sugar into a bowl, mix well until sugar is dissolved. 

Add in peppermint extract and green food coloring, if using, and stir well until combined.  Cover and chill 30 minutes or until temperature reaches 45⁰ F/7⁰ C.

Meanwhile, chop the semisweet chocolate.

MAKE ICE CREAM

Remove the bowl of the Ice Cream Maker from the freezer and attach the assembled clear lid to the bowl.  Set the timer for 30 minutes. Once the paddle starts rotating, pour the mixture into the bowl. During the last minute of churning, pour the chopped chocolate through the shoot.

When the timer has ended, Remove the paddle from the bowl and serve immediately, or cover and let ice cream harden, if desired.

That’s it!  Please let me know if you give this a try, and be sure to go over to visit Amy at Chew Out Loud.  Let’s make great food together!
