Mint ice cream

As promised last week, today I’m sending you a recipe for mint ice cream

You can use any kind of mint for this. I like the Moroccan Nana mint the best.

Of course, it’s great if you can use your own mint grown in your garden ?

You can make the mint ice cream in an ice cream maker or put it in a container in the freezer and stir it with a fork every half hour.

It tastes best when it is not completely frozen.

You can use the basic recipe for this:

For about 500 – 700 ml of ice cream
