Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip and Strawberry Ice Cream :)

(originally made 5/2011)

I have the best sister in the world, who always gifts me with things she knows that I love, but would never buy for myself.    This year it was an ice cream maker attachment for my KA mixer.    Yesterday was the last day of vacation and Jake & I thought it would be fun to make a couple batches   :)

His request was Mint chocolate chip.   Since he has had problems with eggs in the past, I was looking for an egg free recipe and I found it from the Neely's-
I used Mint extract instead of peppermint- http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/patrick-and-gina-neely/mint-chocolate-chip-ice-cream-recipe/index.html This is my favorite of the 2, nice texture for a no egg ice cream! VERY minty, which could be from overenthusiastic measuring from Jake   :)

The second thing I wanted to make was strawberry.   Picking time is coming and we've still got a good ration put away from last year.  I'll make jam soon, but in the meantime some ice cream sounded great to me.    This one came from allrecipes.com-
Easy Eggless strawberry ice cream- http://allrecipes.com//Recipe-Tools/Print/Recipe.aspx?RecipeID=140877&origin=detail&&Servings=8 Good, texture is a little more grainy but that could be because the attachment hadn't totally refrozen yet. Next time I'd use sweetened cond milk instead of whole milk. :)

Mint chocolate chip ice cream

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  2               cups  sweetened condensed milk -- chilled
  2               cups  heavy whipping cream -- chilled
  1 1/2      teaspoons  peppermint extract (used mint)
     1/8      teaspoon  green food coloring -had none, Jake mixed some with blue & yellow :)
  1                cup  mini morsel chocolate chips
                        Hot fudge sauce
                        Whipped cream
                        Shaved milk chocolate

Mix the milk, cream, peppermint extract and green food coloring together in a large liquid measuring cup and refrigerate until cold. Turn your ice cream machine on and pour in the cream mixture. Churn until the mixture looks slushy like soft serve, about 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chocolate morsels.

Transfer the ice cream to another container and put plastic wrap on top of the ice cream. Cover the container tightly with a lid. Freeze for several hours until firm enough to scoop.
