Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream


This mint chocolate chip ice cream recipe is one that I discovered by accident. I think the 2% milk makes the ice cream taste lighter.

Prep Time:
10 mins
Additional Time:
2 hrs 30 mins
Total Time:
2 hrs 40 mins
2 quarts


  • 2 cups 2% milk

  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 drops green food coloring (Optional)

  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Stir milk, cream, sugar, vanilla, peppermint extract, and salt together in a large bowl until the sugar has dissolved. Mix in green food coloring.

  2. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

  3. Add chocolate chips about 10 minutes into the freezing. Continue churning until ice cream has thickened, about 20 minutes more.

  4. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
