Is there anything better than a big bowl of ice cream? How about Homemade Ice Cream on a Friday night? Quite possibly the best thing ever.

Since July is National Ice Cream Month, I really wanted to share my very favorite recipe with you. It’s been around forever and ever. This ice cream is hard to beat, in fact, I have yet to taste one that satisfies and tastes better than this easy peasy frozen wonderfulness. It’s that good!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? Mine is obviously Mint Chocolate Chip. Always has been and probably always will be. Whatever your favorite may be, you can most likely recreate your own, using this recipe as a base.

Back in the day (before Adam developed lactose intolerance), we would practically live on this ice cream. I made an uncountable number of different flavors and seriously had the best time experimenting in the kitchen.

This is also a good time to let you know that I have zero skills in ice cream scooping. Filling up the bowl in these pics was a serious challenge for me.

But there isn’t much I wouldn’t do for you when it comes to food. And having Mint Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream as a reward after shooting these wasn’t a bad deal either :).

I could never get enough of this ice cream. It’s so incredibly smooth and creamy and nobody ever believes that the texture was created without the help of an ice cream machine.

Every time I pull the finished product out of my freezer, I just stand and stare at it for a couple of seconds. I love the way it looks before I start scooping away and leave a pretty mess behind – again, no scooping skills, ha.

As I mentioned at the beginning of the post, the base for the recipe is the perfect vehicle to create your favorite flavor. Love chocolate? Add some chocolate syrup. What about vanilla? You can leave it as is or add a couple of drops of vanilla extract. You pretty much can’t mess this one up. Whatever you make – I am certain it will be delectable.

This was inevitable. Chocolate syrup is a must for me.

Have an amazing weekend, friends!

  1. Have you thought about using coconut milk or almond milk as a non-dairy alternative for your husband. This week I made my first ice cream that was non dairy, and my whole family loved it! There are lots of recipes out there on the Internet to explore.

    BTW, I have been a subscriber for some time, and your emails aren’t coming to my inbox anymore. It’s happened a couple of times. I don’t know the deal. Glad I checked in. I think this happens with my blog too, and it’s a bit frustrating.

    Blessings on your weekend!

  2. I was never crazy into ice cream as a kid (or now), but when I did (or do) have it was (and is) always this or cookies n’ cream! Yum!

  3. Hehe I share that same love of ice cream – it’s my favorite treat that I could eat all the time if I could ๐Ÿ™‚ Love love love mint chocolate chip too – wish I had a big bowl of this! Mmm..happy weekend, Kathi!

  4. Mmm, looks good! Mint chocolate chip is my husband’s favorite!

  5. This looks SO good! I’m lactose intolerant as well, but have found lactose-free cream! Seriously! I’m in Canada and the brand here is Natrel, might be worth looking around for.

  6. Omg Kathi that last shot is to die for!!! I love your close up shots, they are so great. They make me want to eat. And NO, there is NOTHING better than a big bowl of ice cream. My favorite ice cream of all time is Mint Cookies n Cream. They made it at the creamery at BYU where I went to school, and I recently found a local place that has a legit version. SO GOOD!

  7. Mint chocolate chip is the absolute best! I’m needing to get myself an ice cream maker…because this recipe looks simply delicious. I like your blog!

  8. Mint Chocolate Chip is also my favorite! I could eat vats and vats of it. I don’t know what you’re talking about with scooping…those scoops look like a professional scooped them!

  9. YUM.. mint chocolate chip ice cream is just my favourite flavour ever.. i am so craving a couple of scoops right now. love it. thanks for sharing the awesome recipe!

  10. Oh hey soul sister! We’re total twinners because mint chocolate chip is my favorite flavor too. I don’t make homemade ice cream too often because I seriously never have freezer room for the bowl! It’s the worst but probably for the best because then we’d just eat it all the time. ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to try this version once I clean up my freezer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I love ice cream that doesn’t involve egg yolks. Going to try this soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
