Mint Oreo Icecream Recipe | Eggless Mint Icecream(without Icecream Maker) | Summer Special Recipes

This week we celebrated Jany's birthday and I made a special non-veg lunch platter, which includes some of his favourite dishes. I am planning to start a lunch menu series soon and I will be posting the birthday lunch as a part of that. Apart from the lunch, I made few snacks and the birthday cake. He loves mint flavour and hence I made a Marble Cake with Mint butter cream frosting and finally, covered it with chocolate Ganache.  The cake came out really well and he was surprised with the mint flavour. Immediately, he was asking me to make mint ice cream. I had some leftover cream and mint extract. So the next day, I made this easy and creamy ice cream. I am not a fan of the mint flavour and hence I have not tasted it. However, Jany liked it a lot and I am here with the recipe. I adapted the recipe from here and modified it based on my choices. Do check out my Mango Icecream, Mango Popsicle and Rosemilk Popsicle too. Let's see the preparation:

Heavy Cream/Thickened Cream/ Whipping Cream - 2 Cups 
Full Fat Milk - 1 Cup 
Sugar - 3/4 Cup 
Peppermint Extract - 1 tsp(Check notes for real mint extract) 
Green Food Color - few drops(Optional) 
Oreo biscuits - 6 (Mint or Vanilla flavoured)
1. In a wide mixing bowl, add the cream, milk and sugar. Stir it well until the sugar is dissoved completely. Then add the mint extract and food color.
2. Using an electric hand mixer, whip it well until it is thick and creamy. It takes a minimum of 5 to 7 minutes using an electric beater. If using a whisk, then whip it for a minimum of 15 mins. (You can churn it in your ice cream maker too). Then transfer it to a freezer safe bowl and freeze it for 2 to 3 hours.
3. After 3 hours, transfer it to a mixer jar and blend it until the ice cream is smooth and creamy. Blending is done to prevent the formation of crystals. Meanwhile, take the oreo biscuits in a ziplock bag and break it into small pieces.
4. Mix broken oreo's with the ice cream and transfer it back to the container. Freeze it for 8  to 10 hours or overnight.
Serve the yummy and creamy ice cream with few more broken Oreos for an extra crunch.
Points to remember:
  • If you don't prefer Oreo, you can replace it with broken pieces of chocolates or chocolate chips too.
  • Heavy cream or whipped cream gives a smooth and creamy texture to the icecream. However, any cream with at least 25% fat is required for this ice cream. 
  • If you don't prefer artificial mint extract. Then, follow the below steps to get the original mint extract:
    • Clean 2 cups of Mint(pudina) leaves and chop it well.
    • Boil the milk and add the chopped mint leaves to it. Keep it covered until the milk cools down. Then keep the bowl refrigerated for 4 hours.
    • After 4 hours, filter the milk and squeeze the mint leaves well to extract the essence completely.
    • Add the flavored milk to the cram and sugar and follow the same steps.
Warm Regards,
