Secret Recipe Club - No Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I hate sharing a freezer. Besides the fact that there are large and mysterious cuts of meat in there, people will eat your stuff. Even if it has a name on it. I made a beautiful, perfect bowl of ice cream and spent time rearranging the scary meats so the bowl would stand up straight in the freezer. When I came back to retrieve it, the bowl was tipping side and someone had stuck their fingers in my ice cream. 


Ewwwwwww. What would prompt someone to do that? If you are reading this, I hope you are ashamed. I would have gladly given you a large scoop if you had asked me. But noooo, you had to surreptitiously stick your fingers in there. How am I supposed to know what else you've touched? Yuckyuckyuck. 


Ahem. Anyway. Let me tell you a bit about the blog I was assigned for Secret Recipe Club this month. It's called Crumbs and Chaos (I enjoy that name very much) and is run by four sisters! That's so cool. If me and my sister had a blog together, I think it would get very silly ^_^ I found this recipe in Becca's section of the site (Rebeccas unite!) and couldn't resist. I love ice cream, and I am terrible at making it. I thought maybe if I tried a new technique, it would work out for me? Totally yes. It's a bit fluffier and softer than typical ice cream, but it's great to know that I can make ice cream without a machine, huzzah! 

Oh, and freezer thief? I'm coming for you. 



No Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

1 pint WHIPPING CREAM
1 can (14 oz.) SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK
1 1/2 teaspoons MINT EXTRACT
3/4 cup CHOCOLATE CHIPS
3 drops GREEN FOOD COLORING

In a bowl, beat cream until fluffy (this took about 1 1/2 minutes).  Set aside.
In another bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk, mint extract, chocolate chips and food coloring. Gently fold in the whipped cream.  Pour mixture into a freezable container and freeze until firm.  See how easy that was?

  2. Sold. And mint ice cream is my fave! Think I can stir in some chocolate chips?

    And how dare someone poke your ice cream? It's a crime against dessert.

    1. The chocolate chips are in there, they just sunk to the bottom. And yes, that ice cream was poked. The horror!

  5. What a easy ice cream recipe, as I do not currently (hoping to change in near future) own a ice cream maker, this recipe would be perfect!

  8. Pinned it. Oh--and as for the finger poker: unless you live with 3-year-olds there is no excuse for finger dipping.

  9. This is by far my favorite flavor of ice cream, but for some reason I got sick on the Healthy Choice brand of this flavor. Perhaps I just need to have the homemade stuff in moderation! I have not had any since that sick day, but this does look tempting.

  18. Although we have an ice cream maker, I hate that we need to plan a day in advance to freeze the churner. So you got my attention immediately with this recipe. I'd love to try this!
