If you know anything about me, you know I am pretty much obsessed with ice cream.
With so much fresh goat’s milk lying around here, we have no choice. We HAVE to make ice cream. Ah, the sacrifices we must make here on the farm. Takin’ one for the team, man.
But what I love most about making homemade ice cream is how it makes us slow down and savor the summer! Summer is the time to slow down with family & friends. Barefoot temps, fresh and simple meals, doing as much as possible outdoors…there’s an especially delicious pace to summer, wouldn’t you agree?
What’s my favorite ice cream flavor?
For me, it’s mint chocolate chip all the way. The combination of creamy rich ice cream with chocolate chips & a touch of mint? Perfection. Here’s my recipe for ya’:
Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream:
3 1/2 cups whole milk (goat, cow or even sheep is cool)
1/2 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. honey
1/2 tsp. real vanilla
3 drops of Peppermint essential oil Learn more about my favorite brand!
1 /2 c. chocolate chips
