My sister is the biggest fan of peppermint and will put it in almost anything… and I mean anything! This week, I saw her add it to her oatmeal! So I’m not being extreme when I say She’s a big fan of this stuff! Anyway, She has been begging me to make this paleo mint chocolate chunk ice-cream for weeks. So this recipe is dedicated to my amazing sister and Her wacky love of everything peppermint.

I too am a fan, but I defiantly don’t like peppermint extract in my oatmeal! I do however, love it in my ice-cream. In fact, mint chocolate chunk ice-cream was my absolute favorite ice-cream as a kid, right along there with vanilla. Paleo ice-creams are my fave, because they are so easy to make. Having my own ice-cream machine is incredible and makes it impossible to stay away from making batches of ice-cream every week of the summer…Food blogger problems.

Family favorite recipes are those timeless recipes that bring back memories with every bite. For me, that would be mint chocolate chunk ice-cream. Memories of hot summer days playing in the yard and running through the sprinkler always accompanies an ice-cream cone.

As a kid, around noon every day during the summer months, my siblings and I would hear the happy melodies of the ice-cream truck. The little white truck would make it’s way through our neighborhood ever afternoon. My siblings and I would run into the house, grab our spare change, and then race out to greet the friendly ice-cream man.

Each time He opened up that little freezer, tucked away in the back of His truck, it was like Christmas! All of us would lean over the side of the freezer, poking our heads into the frosty air. We would gaze at all the pretty packagings on the ice-cream bars, sandwiches, and colorful popsicles. After thoroughly observing and asking each other what the other was going to get, we would finally pick out our favorites. After thanking the man in the ice-cream truck, we waved until the melody of those happy tunes rolled out into the distance.

Ice-cream treats the kid in us all, so go ahead, have some fun and make some ice-cream!

Mint Chocolate Ice-Cream

Making ice-cream at home is one of the best things ever, but for this recipe you will need an ice-cream maker. I own a Cuisinart ice-cream maker that makes 2 quarts of ice-cream per batch. It is seriously the best investment ever! I use it almost every day in the summer, making batches of ice-cream for friends and family. Homemade ice-cream is always, always a huge hit and wins the hearts of guests. You can order your own Cuisinart Ice-cream maker right here!

      Gina, Raw eggs are actually full of health benefits and as long as you keep it frozen, its totally fine. Using an organic sustainably sourced egg also is better when eating raw eggs.

      I haven’t personally tried it, but I have made other paleo ice-cream recipes similar to this one w/out one and they turned out great. You can experiment. All I did was, put the blended ice-cream into a medal bowl and place it int eh freezer and stir on occasion until it turned frozen and creamy. Happy cooking!

    This ice cream is SO good! I can’t believe its healthy! I just tweaked slightly with 1/4c honey instead of maple syrup, added 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves and used 1 drop peppermint essential oil instead of the extract. I used 100% chocolate chopped up. I ate this straight out of the freezer dish! 🙂 Yum!

    Made it, loved it! Only difference is, instead of peppermint extract, I used 3 drops of peppermint essential oil! Still delicious, only slightly less minty. Oh, and I used dark chocolate chips from Nestles.
