I’ve ended up having my morning free for taking pictures of this ice cream on Saturday, and of course after scooping a big bowlful of ice cream for the pictures, I couldn’t help but eat a few bites. Its totally an acceptable breakfast though right? I mean, its just like drinking a big glass of milk. Haha!

    Mint chocolate chip ice cream is my all time favorite. But I live in the Netherlands and I can not get mint chocolate chip ice cream over here. Tonight I tried this recipe. It all went very wel. the only thing is that my chocolate chips, I them choped up in smaller pieces, sunk to the bottom of the mixture. I think I will trie mixing it up after an hour in the freezer. I can hardly wait to taste my home made mint chocolate chip ice cream tomorrow.

  3. Sounds Great! Would regular chocolate chips work?

    1. Felicia, I would use mini chocolate chips, or chop your regular chocolate chips up just a little bit because each regular chocolate chip will be a little big in the ice cream :)

  4. Hi Aimee, I want to try this. What pan size did you use? 9×9 or 13×9?

    1. Oh you’re going to love this! I poured it into a 3 quart bread pan, so 9×5. The taller pan works well, but if you want it to harden faster a 9×9 would probably work fine too.

    I made this for my husband and I the other day. I was skeptical as I grew up using an ice cream machine. My husband is a self- proclaimed dessert connoseur and declared this ice cream to be “better than any ones we have bought so far”. It was delicious!!

    1. I think this is my favorite no churn ice cream yet. Glad you liked it!!

    So I wonder how this would work out using coconut cream instead of whip cream. might have to try. Coconut mint and chocolate sounds devine.

    1. Since coconut cream is so sweet you might want to replace the condensed milk instead. That’s what my friend amber did here.http://www.dessertnowdinnerlater.com/2015/02/no-churn-coconut-ice-cream/ you could try that and add the mint extract to it.

    YUM, can’t wait to try this recipe, thanks! :-)

  8. Hi All,
    I just upon this tasty looking treat and can I say it looks DE-LISH!!!! Now, Im new to the mint dishes, so I don’t want to mess things up. When I see “MINT” in a recipe my mind naturally goes to “mint” and thats it. Now, when it comes to pure mint and pure peppermint extract I have NO CLUE of the difference between them. Is there a huge difference or are they practically the same just one slightly stronger than the other? Thank you for any guidance you can give me.

    1. Hi April, thanks for asking, mint extract is a combination of spearmint and peppermint, where as peppermint extract is obviously just peppermint. Most mint desserts actually use peppermint extract because that is the typical flavor – if you use mint extract it might taste a little bit more like gum.

      1. THANK YOU AIMEE SOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!! Now, I just have to find some where Im living.

  9. OOOO…I can so see this with fresh strawberries
