She say’s that when she takes a spoonful of No-Churn Vegan Mint Chip Ice Cream, she remembers candy canes and Christmas time and it makes her really happy!
Christmas is her favorite time of the year and this ice cream brings her back happy memories! How fun!
This No-Churn Vegan Mint Chip Ice Cream Recipe is made with fresh mint leaves that give you a subtle yet delightful refreshing minty flavor.
I super boosted the minty-ness with 100% pure peppermint essential oil, you can use peppermint extract if you don’t have pure peppermint oil.
The combination of the creamy ice cream, the chocolate chips and the minty flavor is over the top!
I have never really understood how delicious mint chip ice cream is until now!
I have always believed in using fresh ingredients to bring out the flavor in foods, which is what you get with this recipe.
Using fresh mint leaves really brings out the “Wow!” factor in this this No-Churn Vegan Mint Chip Ice cream, it is A-MAZING!
Most homemade mint chip ice creams call for steeping the leaves in milk for 2 hours but it is not really necessary when you boost it with peppermint oil.
Also, to get the lovely green hue, I used baby spinach leaves. You do NOT taste the spinach whatsoever!
This homemade ice cream tastes like “REAL” Mint Chip only better! Plus, it is SO EASY to make!
My daughter has made this recipe twice already, and on her own! It took her about 7 minutes to make from beginning to end! So easy, yet so refreshing and delicious!
What is wonderful about No-Churn recipes is that they are no fuss recipes. You make a base in the blender and pour into a loaf pan or container and freeze.
These recipes will make you wonder if you should ever go back to the ice cream maker!
