Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Thanks to my wonderful parents, I used my birthday gift card for Le Gourmet Chef on an ice cream maker! Today was my first day using it and it definitely will not be my last. I cannot begin to explain to you how amazing having an ice cream maker is. The best part of it is that the ice cream comes out even better than store bought. Yes. I said it. It does! I see many calories in my future. YAY!


  • 1 c whole milk
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 2 c heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure mint extract
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 4 drops green food coloring

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream and mint extract.
  • Use ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions. Five minutes before the mixing is complete, add the chopped chocolate and food coloring.
  • Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for at least 3 hours, to desired doneness.
  • ENJOY!
