A delicious easy mint chocolate chip ice cream that you can make at home – and no need for an ice cream machine!

Ice cream!

I must say that I ADORE ice cream; no matter if it is summer or winter, hot or cold, I will always be in the mood for ice cream. I have always used it as a home remedy for when I am unwell, and when I want something not too heavy for a dessert!

With the fashion of ice cream parlours growing again, ice cream could be considered the “in thing” again – but for me, it never went out of style! Ice cream is an amazing thing!


When I was at cookery school in Devon, we were taught how to make proper ice cream from scratch – such as cooking it in a pan to cook the eggs out and thicken naturally – and there is nothing wrong with that!

They are incredible desserts and I love making them both ways – I just find this way less time consuming and complicated, but just as yummy! It’s basically a cheats ice cream, which means you don’t need any fancy equipment. 

No churn

I followed this method for my other ice cream recipes too – like my Biscoff Ice cream, Kinder Bueno Ice Cream, Black Forest Ice Cream, and my Terry’s Chocolate Orange Ice Cream!

I thought that the easier way to get what I want quicker is to simply cut to the chase and use a simpler recipe – and therefore be able to mix it together relatively quickly and leave it to freeze overnight, or use my ice cream maker if I am feeling fancy.


One of the things I find about mint ice cream is that it’s so refreshing and light compared to a chocolate fondant for example, yet the ice cream WITH the fondant would be a match made in heaven! There are endless possibilities with ice cream, especially when you can make it so easily at home.

This particular recipe I posted as one of my original recipes on here, but I decided to repost with a couple of little changes – and better pictures! Seriously though, it’s utterly delicious – and SO easy to make!

  • 397 g condensed milk
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 100 g chocolate (chopped finely)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 600 ml double cream
  • green food colouring


  • In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, or a large bowl with a hand-held whisk, mix together the condensed milk, peppermint extract, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour in the double cream and whisk for a couple of minutes on a medium-high speed until thick.
  • Add your green food colouring and continue to whisk until you reach the colour you want.
  • Continue to whisk the mixture until it is very thick and is able to hold it's self.
  • Evenly fold through the finely chopped chocolate.
  • Pour into a freezer proof container/tin, cover with a lid or cling film and freeze for at least 6-8 hours, or overnight!
  • Remove from the freezer about 30 minutes before you wish to serve and store it in the fridge - as it's homemade, it may be a bit hard straight from the freezer! Serve however you wish and enjoy!


  • I serve my ice-cream up with a fresh bit of mint, and a chocolate drizzle, or in a cone - delicious!
  • This will last 3+ months in your freezer.
  • I use this peppermint extract
  • I use this scoop
  • I use this vanilla extract

      Mine has come out with a chalky taste, texture. The salted caramel recipe came out fantastic, silky smooth .
      What could have went wrong?

      Do you have a non churn coconut recipe Jane? x

    I made it and it was delicious however I overbeat it so it isn’t as smooth as I had hoped!

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 12, 2015 at 5:07 pm

      Ohh noo! At least you know for next time! 🙂

  10. lovethelittlebakery on August 12, 2015 at 12:26 pm

    Jane, I made this the other night and it’s truly amazing! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. I would love to put this on my blog to say I’ve tried it if that’s okay with you? I can’t believe how easy it was to make and the creaminess is nicer than a lot of shop bought ice-creams! Your recipes are always so scrummy looking, I have a long list of ones I want to try! 🙂 Hx

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 12, 2015 at 12:37 pm

      Awwh thank you! And yes of course please post it as long as you mention me with a link to my blog 🙂 it’s so nice though isn’t it! And so easy!! x

    • lovethelittlebakery on August 12, 2015 at 8:59 pm

  14. chemit1 on August 7, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    Does this stay soft in the freezer?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 7, 2015 at 3:43 pm

      It’ll go as hard as any ice cream does – so if you want it soft i would recommend getting it out maybe 15 minutes before you want it? 🙂

    • chemit1 on August 7, 2015 at 3:45 pm

      Haha ok. I tried to make ice cream a couple years ago and after 24hrs in the freezer it turned into a rock and I broke my spoon trying to dig it out! Lol

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 7, 2015 at 3:59 pm

      Ohhhh no this will never be that hard! I usually take mine out about 30-45 before I want it but stick it in the fridge during that time 🙂 makes it the perfect consistency!

    • chemit1 on August 7, 2015 at 4:21 pm

      Awesome! I’m going to give it a try!

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 7, 2015 at 4:29 pm

      Please do! Lemme know how it goes! ☺️

    • Sophie on April 25, 2022 at 10:29 am

      I added a tsp of vodka to mine, you can’t taste it but helps keep your ice cream soft enough to scoop right out the freezer! Hope that helps

  15. sososed1388 on August 7, 2015 at 2:33 pm

  17. Rae on August 7, 2015 at 10:55 am

    Mint Chocolate chip is definitely my favourite flavour of ice cream! Would you recommend dark or milk chocolate?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 7, 2015 at 11:16 am

      I use either! This particular one I used Lindt Dark 70% 🙂
