Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Heavy Whipping Cream: This is a great thickening agent and when used at room temperature it creates a creamy consistency.
Sweetened Condensed Milk: This ingredient is all about getting that smooth and almost creamy texture that you love when it comes to ice cream.
Peppermint Extract: This is where you get that strong minty flavor.
Green Food Coloring Gel: Be sure to use food coloring gel and not the liquid form to make it blend easier into the ingredients. Use a drop to a couple of drops to make the desired color of the recipe.
How To Make Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Step 1. Add the cold heavy cream into a large mixing bowl and whip until stiff peaks form. Add in the sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract, and a few drops of green food coloring and combine until fully incorporated. If you want a deeper green color, you can add a few more drops of coloring. Add in the chocolate chips and use a spatula to fold and combine.
Step 2. Take the loaf pan out of the freezer and add the prepared mixture into the pan before placing it back in the freezer to chill for at least 6 hours, but overnight will give you the best results. Scoop, Serve, and Enjoy!
How Does Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Get Its Color?
The answer is simple for how this recipe gets its gorgeous mint green color. I like to use a few drops of green food coloring gel. You can use a lot to get a really bright color or use just a few for the perfect light green.
Can I Add More To Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream?
This ice cream tastes amazing with just chocolate chips because the flavors blend so well together. However, you can add other things in like, candy bars, for example, Twix, Reeses, Snickers, and more. And, instead of adding them to the recipe, you could also use some toppings like chocolate syrup, sprinkles, whipped cream, or cherries.
