Mint Chip Ice Cream

This year I asked Santa for an Ice Cream maker, and guess what, I GOT IT!  Best gift ever.  Its now January 12th and I have made 5 different types of ice cream already and I have a big list of recipes to make.  Needless to say, ill be busy the next few months making ice cream and sorbets.   So all the recipes I have made have been super easy.  I have been too impatient and lazy to make the fancy ice creams where you have to temper in egg yolks and drain it through sieves and chill for hours.  These next few recipes I am going to post are fool proof.   This mint chip ice cream was truly amazing!  I would highly recommend this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.   Its quick and easy, what more can you ask for.



Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream - Adapted from All Recipes
Yield - 1.5 Quarts
1 1/2 Cups Milk - I used non-fat milk
1 1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
3/4 Teaspoon Peppermint Extract
2 or 3 Drops Green Food Coloring - optional
3/4 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips - or Shaved Chocolate

Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the milk, cream, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and peppermint extract until the sugar has dissolved. Color to your liking with the green food coloring.
  2. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. After about 10 minutes into the freezing, add the chocolate chips. After the ice cream has thickened, about 10 minutes later, spoon into a container, and freeze for 2 hours.
