Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Strictly Sweet Low Carbohydrate Recipes
>For mint lovers, there is nothing like combining it with chocolate - and then making Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! This rich ice cream combines the two favored flavors so tastefully you won't believe it's low in carbs.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup Davinci Peppermint Paddy sugar free syrup
10 drops green food coloring (optional)
2/3 cup Splenda (or Steviva)
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon lecithin granules
2 tablespoons glycerin
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil/extract
1/2 cup sugar free mini chocolate chips
Beat the eggs and add them to the cream. Blended in the Splenda and glycerin.
Mix 1/2 of the Davinci syrup to blend (in a mini food processor) the xanthan gum to a gummy paste, then add it and the remaining 1/2 of the syrup to the mix. Hold back 1/2 cup of the cream and blend the lecithin granules up real well in the mini food processor too, and then add it in to the mix.
Heat the mixture on the stove on medium heat in a saucepan, stirring fairly constantly until it reaches 160-180 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Stir in the food coloring and peppermint oil.
Put the whole thing in the freezer, checking it and stir every 30 minutes to prevent a skin and lumps from forming.
After a few hours, put the mixture into an ice cream maker. When the ice cream is nearly as hard as you like, add in the 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips and let it freeze another 10 minutes.
