Homemade mint chocolate ice cream- super easy to make no cook, egg free, flavorful and insanely delicious. You will not believe how easy it is to make this gourmet ice cream at home!
Mint chocolate ice cream is my favorite. Strike that all ice creams are my favorite and so is this flavor. I tasted this mint ice cream with chunks of dark chocolate in a premium parlor few years back and I am a fan since then.
Unlike what is commonly available it was not a chocolate ice cream flavored with peppermint extract, instead it was a delightfully mild ice cream with real mint leaves and chunks of bittersweet chocolate. I liked it so much that I made it at home the next day. I have been making this every summer ever since and this recipe of mint chocolate ice cream I am sharing with you is the best!
Can you see through the pictures, how creamy and rich it is? It has a pleasing color and mild flavor that is perfect for summer. A very refreshing and delicious summer dessert just like vanilla , butterscotch, cream and cookies, tender coconut ice creams.
The best thing about homemade ice creams are you can use finest quality ingredients. Here I have used fresh, tender and flavorful homegrown mint leaves and curvature chocolate with 80% cocoa. Quality ingredients definitely makes a difference.
Next, you don’t need to cook anything for this ice cream. No making custard base or tempering the chocolate. Also this is a no churn ice cream. Whip, fold and freeze. How easy is that, even the kids can make this as fun summer dessert. I am big on making no cook no churn ice creams and few of my favorites are gulkand ice cream, mango kulfi, pistachio ice creams.
So make a batch or three of this delicious mint chocolate ice cream and enjoy. You will absolutely love every bit of it!

Cream- Any good quality dairy cream. I have used amul low fat cream. You can also use double cream, heavy cream or whipping cream

Mint leaves- Fresh spearmint leaves that are fresh and tender. If fresh leaves are not available you can use few drops of mint extract and green food color. But using fresh mint leaves is the real deal.Make a very fine paste of mint leaves and strain it to get the juice.
Chocolate- Good quality dark chocolate or bittersweet chocolate with more than 60% cocoa. The quality of chocolate makes all the difference. Make sure to fold the dark chocolate bits very well as it tends to settle at the bottom of the container.
