vegan fresh mint chip ice cream


I tinkered with several recipes for fresh mint ice cream recently for two reasons: 1. last weekend I visited Santa Cruz and had an amazing scoop of fresh mint chip at the Penny Ice Creamery; 2. my dear friends just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and I am on meal duty tomorrow night. One of the friends is lactose intolerant, so I decided to experiment.

Vegan Fresh Mint Chip Ice Cream


  1. Prepare mint leaves.
  2. Heat coconut milks, sugar and salt in medium sauce pan over medium heat.
  3. Add mint. When mixture comes to a slow boil, remove from heat and cover. Let sit one hour to infuse.
  4. Pour mixture into a bowl and let cool overnight.
  5. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and churn until thickened.
  6. Chop chocolate and add to maker to incorporate.
  7. Scoop ice cream out of maker and into a quart-sized container. Freeze for at least an hour before serving.
  8. Enjoy!
