About this recipe:This is a GREAT mint chocolate chip ice cream that I discovered by accident. The skim milk makes the ice cream taste 'lighter' I think. Serve garnished with sprigs of mint and shaved dark chocolate.
In a large bowl, stir together the milk, cream, sugar, salt, vanilla essence and peppermint extract until the sugar has dissolved. Colour to desired colour with the green food colouring, starting with just a few drops.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
After about 10 minutes into the freezing, add the chocolate chips. After the ice cream has thickened, about 30 minutes later, spoon into a container, and freeze for 2 hours.
