      Delicious ice cream. I really liked how the herbal quality of fresh mint comes through in the finished product. It just tastes so fresh, and it has a really beautiful pale creamy green color if you leave out the food coloring. One little quibble with the recipe, though. We didn't get six servings out of this. That may be partially due to my ice cream maker not incorporating as much air as it should, but we got something more like three completely delicious servings.
