No Churn Ice Cream

No churn ice cream is ice cream that is made without an ice cream maker.

The ingredients are mixed together in a bowl and poured into a freezer safe dish and placed in the freezer to thicken into ice cream.

It takes just minutes to mix the ingredients together and about 2 hours for the ice cream to thicken into perfect slightly-more-than-soft serve ice cream.

How To Make Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

  1. First you need to whip the cream. For this step, I like to use my hand mixer but a whisk will certainly do the job.
  2. After the cream has been whipped, pour in the condensed milk.
  3. Gently mix in the mint extract.
  4. Pour into a freezer safe container and stir in the chocolate chips. Cover the bowl and freeze.

What To Do With Leftover Sweetened Condensed Milk

You will only use 2-ounces of sweetened condensed milk in this mint chip ice cream for one recipe.

Absolutely, do not throw the remainder away.

This milk stores like a dream. Pour the rest of the milk into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

You can use the remainder of the milk to make this or vanilla ice cream again, or use it to make any one or all of these fabulous recipes:

Ways To Use Leftover Ingredients

If you have any other ingredients left over from this ice cream recipe, you might like to consider using them in any of these single serving recipes:

  1. I finally got around to making this (now that summer is almost over) and it’s fabulous! I try to keep sweets at a minimum in the house as I have little will power whatsoever, but this is a nice treat with zero leftovers.
