We are having a very hot summer and a sure way to cool down is with ice cream! This ice cream recipe is made with fresh mint and is very refreshing! My kids love making homemade ice cream in the summer and this is one of their favourites!
Mint Chip Ice Cream
In a saucepan, whisk and simmer until sugar is dissolved:
- 3 cups heavy cream (35%)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch salt
Remove from heat and whisk in:
- 1 cup milk
Then add in:
- 1 cup steeped mint leaves in hot water, strained (I took a big bunch of mint leaves and steeped them in hot water and then strained the leaves out and used 1 cup of the liquid)
- drop of green food colouring (optional)
Cool the ice cream mixture completely.
When cool, churn in your ice cream maker.
During the mix in cycle add in 1/2 to 3/4 cup mint chocolate chips chopped up. This makes approximately 2L of ice cream.
