Light Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Karen..

This is a light, refreshing ice cream and the only fat comes from the chocolate chips. Our whole family loves it! For a truly fat free treat, leave out the chips :) (Cook time is freezing time)

Great ice cream that doesn't taste "light". I only used 1/4 teaspoon of the pepermint extract which was the perfect amount for us. I was wondering about adding a bit of green food coloring next time I make this ice cream to give it the mint look as well as the great mint taste. Thanks Karen for sharing this great light ice cream that will be a regular at our house.
