I do like my ice-cream and I’m pleased at the increase in availability of dairy free ice-cream I can enjoy both in shops and when eating out. Every so often I bring out my ice-cream churner and go through a phase of making lots of different dairy free ice-cream recipes.

This weekend I made mint choc chip for a little treat after dinner. I used soya cream and almond milk to make this but any kind of dairy free milk and cream should work with this recipe. Next time I think I’ll have a go at making some cinnamon ice-cream.




  • 5 egg yolks
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 500ml dairy free milk
  • 250ml dairy free cream
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • few drops of green food colour, optional
  • 60g dairy free chocolate chips


  1. Whip the egg yolks, vanilla and sugar together until thick and creamy
  2. Place the milk and cream into a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil
  3. Add the milk to the eggs and sugar while stirring continuously
  4. Return to the pan and cook over a low heat until thickened
  5. Stir in the mint extract and food colour
  6. Remove from the heat and allow to cool
  7. Chill in the fridge
  8. Stir in the chocolate chips
  9. Churn in an ice-cream maker for 20 minutes or place in the freezer
