Humble Mint Ice Cream

A refreshing creamy delicious ice cream, with a hint of mint. Perfect for those warm sunny days..

Serves 3-4 people

Prep time 15-20 minutes


50g fresh chopped mint

500ml Water

200g Sugar

300ml Double cream

2 egg yolks

200g Milk (full fat)

Juice of 1lemon

Juice of 1 lime


Taking a large saucepan, place the chopped mint, water and sugar into the bowl and gently bring to the boil.

Simmer gently for 2 -4 minutes, then leave to one side to cool & letting the mixture infuse its flavours.

Once the mint liquor liquid has cooled strain through a small sieve.

Take a separate bowl and whisk the cream until fully whipped and soft till the mixture peaks.

Whisking the eggs & milk together, gently fold in the whipped cream mixture with a wooden spoon or spatula. Then add the strained cooled mint liqueur and stir gently.

Add the lime & lemon juice to sharpen the flavour.

Combine the creamed mixture in a pan over a very low heat. Stirring continuously to stop any lumps forming.

When the mixture slightly thickens to a slight sauce texture take off the heat and leave to cool.

Place the creamy mixture in a ice cream maker. Churn for at least 10-15 minutes, then pour into a freezer storage tub and freeze for at least 24 hrs.

Take out the ice- cream from the deep freeze 5-10mins before serving!
