Mint & Chocolate Chip Ice-cream

Anya Jensen14th August 2016

Seeing the summer is giving us rainy clouds, and not enough sunshine to eat your ice-cream outside, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create the most delicious and smooth Mint & Chocolate Chip Icecream on the market, in collaboration with Malene Marie Møller – from Sohome magazine (read the magazine here – the recipe is on page 94).

This one is velvet smooth, fresh, minty and with lovely dark chocolate chips. This ice cream is perfect to enjoy as a dessert with a bunch of friends or in a bowl, on the sofa, watching your favourite TV series – I recommend Mr. Robot from Viaplay.

Serves 4-6 people

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 100 g dark chocolate (Valhrona max 70%)
  • 4 dl full fat milk
  • 3, 5 dl cream
  • 1 vanilla pod – seeds scraped out and mixed with a spoonful of sugar (alternatively use 1 tbsp vanilla sugar)
  • 30-35 fresh mint leaves – chopped
  • 4 large egg yolks (pasteurised)
  • 125 g sugar
  • 2-4 drops peppermint essence if you feel the need for extra minty flavour
  • Ice cream cones (for serving)
  • Pistachio nuts for decoration

Mint & Chocolate chip icecream

What you’ll need to do:

  • Pop the chocolate in the freezer for 20 mins. Chop or break the chocolate into smalled pieces.
  • Pour the milk and cream into a saucepan, add the vanilla beans, mint and slowly bring to the boil.
  • Keep stirring to prevent it from burning. Leave to cool and leave to infuse for min 45 mins.
  • Mix the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl, and whip until creamy and pale.
  • Pour the milk through a sieve, and discard the mint and vanilla pod.
  • Pour in back into the saucepan and pour the egg mix in.
  • Slowly bring to the boil, whilst stirring until thick. Make sure it doesn’t get too hot, or it may split.
  • Take off the heat and leave to cool completely.
  • Pop it in your ice cream maker – or in the freezer for 1.5 hours – stirring occasionally.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips and freeze until frozen solid.

I have served my ice-cream in cones that I pimped by dipping them in hot melted chocolate, and dipping them in crushed pistachio nuts.
