Mint ice cream is a fresh and refined dessert. The mint syrup is mixed with a mixture based on milk and fresh cream which, once creamed in the ice cream maker, gives us an ice cream with a delicate flavor and a creamy consistency. Enriched with dark chocolate curls, it will be perfect for delighting guests at the end of a meal. So let’s see how to prepare mint ice cream in the best way.

How to make mint ice cream

In a saucepan, melt the milk with the carob seed flour and the sugar 1, then put it on the stove and bring it to a temperature of about 85 degrees C; as soon as it starts to simmer, turn off.

Collect the cream in a jug, pour in the milk 2 and mix well.

Add the mint syrup and blend with an immersion blender 3. Transfer the mixture obtained to the refrigerator and let it rest for at least 4 hours.

After the resting time has elapsed, transfer the mixture to the ice cream maker 4 and stir until you get an ice cream with a creamy and enveloping compactness.

Once you will have obtained the right consistency, transfer the ice cream into a steel container 5 and put it in the freezer and let it harden for at least 2 hours.

Just before serving, distribute the ice cream in the bowls and add a few leaves of mint 6; garnish with chocolate curls and two waffles and serve.


Mint ice cream can be preserved in a special hermetically sealed container in the freezer for about 6-7 days. Like all homemade ice cream, however, it is always better to prepare and enjoy it at the moment.
