Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla bean powder or paste (optional)
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips


  1. Thoroughly mix together the milk, cream, sugar and vanillas with a whisk or shake it in a jar.
  2. Add the milk mixture to the ice cream maker, then add the mint. After 15 minutes, add the chocolate chips. Let it continue churning 5 more minutes, then either serve and eat quickly or transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze for several hours. It will melt quickly fresh out of the ice cream maker.
