Why Choose No-Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream?

No-churn ice cream recipes have gained popularity for their simplicity and delicious results without an ice cream maker. Our recipe, with just a few essential ingredients and minimal effort, is designed to make you feel confident and capable of whipping up a batch of creamy goodness at home.

Ingredients You’ll Need:


  • 2 and ¼ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 3-4 drops green food coloring (optional, for vibrant color)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to Make No-Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

1. Whip the Cream to Stiff Peaks:

Begin by whipping the heavy whipping cream in a large mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. This process typically takes 3-5 minutes with an electric hand mixer on medium-high speed. Stiff peaks mean the cream stands upright when the beaters are lifted out.

2. Fold in Condensed Milk and Flavorings:

Next, gently fold in the sweetened condensed milk, peppermint extract, and optional green food coloring. Folding ensures the mixture remains light and airy, which is crucial for achieving a creamy texture in your ice cream.

3. Incorporate Chocolate Chips:

Carefully fold the semi-sweet chocolate chips into the mixture until evenly distributed. This step ensures that every spoonful of your ice cream is packed with delicious chocolatey goodness.

4. Transfer and Freeze:

Pour the ice cream mixture into a 9×5-inch loaf pan or a similar-sized container. Smooth the top with a spatula to create an even surface. Cover the pan with plastic wrap or a lid to prevent ice crystals from forming.

5. Set in the Freezer:

Place the pan in the freezer and allow the ice cream to set for at least 4 hours or until firm. This freezing time allows the flavors to meld together and the ice cream to reach the perfect consistency.

6. Serve and Enjoy:

Once fully set, scoop the mint chocolate chip ice cream into bowls or cones. Garnish with additional chocolate chips or fresh mint leaves for an extra touch of flavor and presentation. Serve immediately and enjoy the creamy, refreshing taste of homemade ice cream.

Tips and Tricks for Making Homemade No-Churn Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

As someone who’s made this recipe countless times, I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks along the way to ensure it’s always a hit!

  • For some extra mint flavor, you can exchange the chocolate chips for Andes mint pieces. We particularly like the dark chocolate Andes pieces.
  • Be careful not to beat the air out of the whipped cream mixture when adding the chocolate chips. Keeping the mixture light and airy is critical to that perfect creamy texture.
  • You can store this ice cream in the freezer for up to 2 months. Ensure it’s in an airtight container to prevent any freezer burn.
  • This ice cream is great garnished with a few sprigs of fresh mint. It not only looks pretty but also enhances the minty flavor.

  • If you’re feeling adventurous, add a swirl of chocolate fudge or caramel sauce before freezing. It creates a delicious ribbon of extra flavor.
  • Let the kids add their favorite mix-ins, like crushed cookies or candy pieces, for a fun twist. This will make the ice cream even more special and personalized.
  • To adjust the peppermint flavor, start with 1 ½ teaspoons of peppermint extract and adjust to taste. Some prefer a more robust mint flavor, so add more if desired.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate chips or add crushed cookies for extra texture and flavor variations.
  • Store any leftover ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a few weeks. However, it’s likely to be enjoyed long before then!
