Creme De Menthe Chip Ice Cream

Love homemade ice cream.


I know many people prefer the custard type base, which is delicious, but to me it's not THAT much better than this simple throw together version. 
This works for any flavor and I enjoy it about as much as the other, and without all the work.

You can use any combination of milk and cream that you want. I usually use a combination of regular milk and cream or half and half, but I needed to use up a carton of half and half before it expired. And then I was in the mood for it to be a bit rich, so I used cream instead of milk. What ever suits you will work, as long as you keep the amount of liquid the same.

  1. Half and half+ heavy cream sounds perfectly indulgent, the way icecream should be!
