No Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream – super creamy mint chocolate chip ice cream that you can make in minutes, no ice cream maker required!
I had the privilege of getting together for breakfast with a few local Fort Collins bloggers yesterday. It is always so much fun to get together with someone who completely understands your job and can relate to your crazy stories. I am not sure why we don’t do it more often, we all live in the same town! Life just gets in the way I guess. But I always come away excited and with lots of new ideas. And yesterday was no different. Stay tuned tomorrow for a new feature coming to the blog! You are going to love it!
There are a few things that are required in the summer. Ice cream is one of them. When we were in New Zealand we had the luxury of having kitchens, which meant we had a freezer. We took full advantage and had ice cream in our freezer at almost every stop. The only problem was getting all 3 of us to agree on a flavor. The one we could agree on every single time was mint chocolate chip ice cream. There is just enough chocolate to make me happy, and enough other flavor that my husband is happy (he doesn’t like chocolate). So when we got home I figured why not continue and make a no churn ice cream for us to enjoy!
No churn ice cream is super simple! Just a few ingredients, and you do not need an ice cream maker. It is the perfect solution to ice cream cravings. The only problem is waiting for it to set up in the freezer. I obviously added a little green food coloring to my mint chocolate chip ice cream to get the classic green color, but that is completely optional. It will still taste the same if it is white 🙂 Although my son might get a little confused and be shocked when his first bite is not plain vanilla. Come to think of it, that might be a fun trick to try. Summer and ice cream are a must, if you don’t have an ice cream maker (and even if you do), you need to try this no churn mint chocolate chip ice cream soon!
