It was the best suggestion yet! The kids and I had been talking about what flavors of ice cream we should make this week and graham cracker ice cream and cherry pie ice cream were suggested.
We put them on the list and then later, when we were surveying the herb pot, my nephew said we should make Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and add bits of the fresh herb "Chocolate Mint." We all loved the idea and it became our first flavor.
This recipe is fabulous because it requires no cooking and no eggs. Genius!
Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream
Mix 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 (5 oz) can of evaporated milk, 2 cups of whole milk, 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and about 4 Tablespoons of chopped fresh Chocolate Mint. Pour into the freezer container of an electric ice cream maker and follow the ice cream maker instructions. When the ice cream is almost finished (soft serve consistency), add 1/2 of a bag of mini semi sweet chocolate chips.
