Mint Choc Chip Ice Cream Recipe

A refreshing homemade mint choc chip ice cream that's perfect for cooling down on a warm day.





  • Step 1.

    Begin by infusing your milk with fresh mint leaves. Combine the milk and mint leaves in a saucepan, and gently warm over low heat for about 5 minutes. Do not boil. Allow to sit for an hour then strain.
  • Step 2.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks and caster sugar until light and creamy.
  • Step 3.

    Gently reheat the infused milk until it's warm, then gradually pour it into the egg mixture, whisking continuously.
  • Step 4.

    Pour the mixture back into the pan and heat gently, stirring constantly, until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Step 5.

    Remove from heat and stir in the double cream and vanilla extract. Allow to cool completely, then chill in the fridge.
  • Step 6.

    Once chilled, churn the mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Step 7.

    In the last few minutes of churning, add in the chopped dark chocolate.
  • Step 8.

    Transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze until solid.
  • Step 9.

    Let stand at room temperature for a few minutes before serving to soften slightly.
