There is something really wonderful about the texture of frozen, yet soft, cream with the crunch of chocolate throughout. The crisp, refreshing peppermint ice cream is complimented beautifully by the deep tones of the dark chocolate chips.

      I am not sure what type of mint oil you used, but I used mint essential oil and it was WAY WAY too minty! I had to throw all of it away. What type did you use? The texture of the ice cream was amazing and I would love to make it again with less mint.

      Delicious flavor, but was not creamy. Very similar ingredients to another coconut-based ice cream that has been much creamier, using the same machine.

      I plan to try again, but without cooking and instead using a blender or mixer to both completely combine and partially whip the ingredients. I also think adding the mixture to the ice cream machine at room temperature, instead of chilled, will help with the texture.

      Again, though: great flavor! Hoping to find the right steps to get the texture consistently creamy, as well.
