Summer is officially here and that means one thing – it is Ice Cream Season!

Chocolate and Mint

Chocolate and mint are one of those combinations everyone loves. The flavors go together so well.

These ingredients are a classic pairing for ice cream and this Keto Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream combines both flavors for one decadently delicious treat!

This ice cream has the perfect balance between mint and chocolate.

To get that fresh minty taste, we are using peppermint extract. You can buy it online or find it near the spices at your local grocery store. A little bit goes a long way so don't overdo it.

Keto Ice Cream Base

The key to keto ice cream is creating the ice cream base.  There are various types of ice cream bases.

Some recipes use an egg base to create a custard-style ice cream. And while this type of custard base results in delicious ice cream, we found that a heavy cream base is just as tasty and much less work!

We've fine-tuned the ingredients and ratios for our keto ice cream over the years, and we have found the perfect combo.

Here is a breakdown for this recipe:

Most people think of mint chocolate chip ice cream as having a green color. If you want that look, feel free to add your desired amount of green food coloring into the base. This step is completely optional.

Making the Ice Cream

Once you have gathered all of your ingredients for the ice cream base, all you need to do is whisk them together in a bowl. 

If you are using granular erythritol, some people prefer to heat the all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat to dissolve the sweetener completely. 

If you chose to do this step, you will need to transfer the ice cream base to the fridge to chill for at least 1-2 hours before you start to churn it.

Churning the Ice Cream

If you don’t already have an ice cream maker, we suggest you get one! It is a worthwhile investment and money saver. (This ice cream maker is our favorite!)

Follow your ice cream maker’s instructions for the churning process. Some may vary, but here are some pro-tips that are useful no matter what ice cream maker you have.

  • Make sure the ice cream tin that you churn in is ice cold. Keep it in the freezer at all times so it is always ready!
  • Make sure your ice cream mixture is very cold too. If it doesn't seem cold enough, refrigerate it for a couple hours after making it.
  • A cold ice cream tin and cold ice cream mixture will help your ice cream in the churning process, meaning it will churn faster and be fluffier!
  • Add 1-3 tablespoons of vodka to your ice cream mixture to avoid having the ice cream harden into a rock when it is stored.

And that’s it! Soon you will be enjoying a delicious bowl of Keto Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!
