Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Personally I don’t like mint ice cream, mint in any food for that matter, but the rest of the family loves it, so I’m giving it a try. My wife will be the taste tester.

The base is a vanilla ice cream that I have used for other recipes.  This is very easy to make since I’m using peppermint extract. When the season is right I will make ice cream using fresh mint.

This recipe as listed below will make about 2 quarts of ice cream.


  • 2 cups of heavy cream
