Mint chocolate-chip ice cream

One of the best investments we made was an Ice cream maker. There are many simple products in the market which are affordable and do a great job. Ours is one such simple gadget with minimal buttons and options. We get soft churn ice cream in under 30 minutes. We usually freeze it for a few hours and it is just perfect. By making our own ice cream, we are able to add the ingredients of our choice and also try out a variety of toppings. 

As always we only use pure Maple syrup or honey to sweeten the ice-cream. 

We have tried many varieties with heavy cream, whole milk, part-skim milk and greek yogurt. This summer season, we will be sharing many such ice cream recipes. 

Lets begin with a basic one – mint chocolate-chip with vanilla ice cream recipe
