Kids in the Kitchen - Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!!
Mimi and I made Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream for Emma (it's her favorite!) while Little Bit looked on. This was an easy, no-cook recipe and was FANTASTIC. Do you like the picture of them sampling it to make sure it was OK? :) After we put it in the ice cream maker and the girls went off to play, I couldn't stop sampling it from the little hole in the top of the maker. It was incredibly creamy and smooth!

1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
I put these in the blender for 3 minutes and mixed on slow until the sugar dissolved.
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
a few drops of green food coloring
a handful of chocolate chips
Blend again for just long enough for the food coloring to mix in.

Add to the ice cream maker and freeze according to manufactures directions.
Freeze for a few hours before eating, unless, like us, you enjoy soft serve ice cream.

  1. WOW! I need that ice cream maker ... Hmm I think I might just have to go get one! How long does it take from strat to finish? Do u just pop the ingredients in the machine turn it on and walk away? Its not like those ole' timey things where you have to "churn" for hours right?

  2. I would love an ice cream maker and if you keep coming up with these great recipes, I might just get one:-)
