Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream has always been my favorite to eat and now it’s one of my favorites to make as well! If you’ve ever considered purchasing an ice cream maker for home use, Ashley highly recommends it! She loves creating our favorites and some new combinations too! Ashley uses her Kitchen Aid Mixer with the ice cream attachment to make homemade ice cream. If you don’t have a Kitchen Aid Mixer, there are several ice cream maker options for under $30!
