My Mom used to make ice cream in an old fashioned hand crank ice cream maker. I remember endlessly cranking that thing on our patio in the summer heat...but luckily, there's a much better way to make your own ice cream at home!
27ozfull-fat coconut milk
4drops peppermint essential oil
4ouncessemi-sweet chocolatechopped (about 1 cup)
Whisk the coconut milk, sugar, and egg yolks together in a medium saucepan and set over medium heat.
Stir the mixture on medium heat for 15 - 20 minutes (DON'T bring to a boil) until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Let mixture cool. I put it in a stainless steel bowl and placed it in the refrigerator. It was cool within 1/2 hour.
Once cool, add the peppermint essential oil and stir.
Add mixture to your ice cream maker and process.
Add the chopped chocolate during the last 5 minutes of the ice cream maker's processing.
