Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

If you follow along on our Facebook page you may know that we recently made our very first batch of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Easy? Yes
Delicious? Yes
A Super Big Deal For Me? Absolutely! 

I have always wanted to venture into different flavors of homemade ice cream. So when I finally found a yummy basic vanilla I decided to start experimenting with other flavors. Mint Chocolate Chip has always been one of my favorites--and it seemed easy enough. I didn't really have a recipe I just altered the basic vanilla. 


Mmmm....chunks of chocolate.

Any mint will do.

Believe me, it's worth it.

Feel free to adjust your mint-y-ness by adding more or less of the mint extract. Also, if you feel like mint ice cream HAS to be green--just add a few drops of green food coloring. I left it out and it tasted pretty fab. One more thing, I added the vanilla to balance out the mint. Without it, it tasted a bit 'toothpaste-y." You might find that you want more or less vanilla. It really is a pretty flexible recipe. The above amounts worked for us!  Enjoy!
