No Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is a rich, smooth, and creamy frozen treat. This mint flavored ice cream is filled with chopped dark chocolate, and is made with just four ingredients – no ice cream machine required.
Have you made no churn ice cream before? It’s surprisingly simple, and easy to customize to make your own favorite ice cream flavor.
Today we’re talking about mint chocolate chip ice cream – a classic and frequent favorite. This ice cream turns out creamy and rich, with refreshing mint flavor. Plus, this ice cream is filled with chopped chocolate throughout – enough to satisfy any chocolate lover!
The best part? All you need is four ingredients to get started.
For this recipe, you’ll need:
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Heavy cream
- Mint extract
- Dark chocolate
The first two ingredients are a must – this is the base for your ice cream. Heavy cream is whipped into whipped cream, and cannot be substituted with things like milk, half & half, or light cream. They do not have enough milkfat to whip.
Mint extract can be substituted with another flavor of extract, if you so desire. Keep in mind, this will change the flavor of your ice cream.
For this recipe, I chopped up a bar of dark chocolate. This can be any plain chocolate candy bar you find at the grocery store. Feel free to use milk chocolate if you prefer.
Ice cream consistency
This ice cream turns out very creamy and rich, once frozen.
Your initial ice cream mixture will look light and fluffy, kind of like a heavy whipped cream. Ice cream is made by whipping air into cream, so this is the texture you are looking for.
Your ice cream will not be ready to eat until it has been frozen for four to five hours. Patience is key! Once frozen, your ice cream will look and feel just like a store bought ice cream – maybe even better.
A 9×5 loaf pan is ideal for no churn ice cream because it perfectly fits one batch. If you don’t have a loaf pan, any freezer friendly container will work, as long as it holds about six cups of ice cream.
Try using a freezer safe tupperware container with a tightly sealing lid.
