This is an easy dessert. Although not identical to ice cream, its nice to have for a sweet tooth. I've never tried, but I assume you could use different extracts such as vanilla or almond.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 5 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 14 teaspoons mint extract
  • 1 egg white
  • green food coloring, optional


  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor until foamy.
  2. Pour into freezer safe dish.
  3. When edges start to get icy, stir and return to freezer until slightly firm at this point, you can stir and eat, or add a little milk or soy milk to make it creamier (i always do).

This is so yummy and so simple to make all the same! Really incredible! I love the cool peppermint taste in my throat. I will cut down the peppermint extract to 1 tsp. though next time, since it was a little bit too strong this time with 1 1/4 tsps. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I will make it again!
