This is the best tasting Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream and it’s made with just 4 ingredients! This no churn ice cream is made with cream, sweetened condensed milk, mint, and chocolate chips. Rich, creamy and the perfect amount for one person.
One of my favorite ice cream flavors has always been mint chocolate chip. As a little girl, I can remember grocery shopping with my mother and begging her to buy the brightest green mint chocolate chip ice cream I could find.
As a grown up, I’ve never really understood the need for ice cream makers to add green food coloring to their mint ice cream. The ice cream is never the actual color of mint or any other herb for that matter.
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
This mint chocolate chip ice cream is creamy white with no artificial colors added at all. It’s speckled with chocolate chips and flavored with pure mint extract.
This recipe makes the ideal amount for one person but can easily be shared if necessary.
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.
Ingredients In Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
For this single serving mint chip ice cream recipe you will need:
- heavy cream
- sweetened condensed milk
- mint extract
- chocolate chips
How To Make Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Follow these easy steps:
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.
After the cream has been whipped, pour in the condensed milk.
Gently mix in the mint extract.
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…
Other No Churn Ice Cream Recipes
When I make a single serving of ice cream, I use a small 8-ounce ramekin or other dish of similar size. The 5-inch dish that I use for many of the recipes found here at One Dish Kitchen is also a great dish to use.
