Easy Mint Chip Ice Cream Recipe

Easy Mint Chip Ice Cream Recipe

You can whip up this easy homemade ice cream in just minutes. Pop it into the freezer overnight to set up-you don't need an ice cream freezer! Chock-full of chips, this minty treat is the favorite of students in my home economics classes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + freezing YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 to 4 drops green food coloring
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine milk, water, extract and food coloring. Fold in whipped cream and chocolate chips. Pour into a foil-lined 9x5-in. loaf pan. Cover and freeze 6 hours or until firm. Lift out of the pan and remove foil; slice. Yield: 8 servings.

"It is so nice to be able to make ice cream without an ice cream maker. I often use crushed oreos instead of the miniature chocolate chips, because they tend to get "waxy" frozen."
