Chocolate Mint Ice Cream

Did you know that cocktails can be made with egg whites? I certainly didn’t. That is, until my husband began his bartender hobby and started adding egg whites into his boozy experiments. So thanks to him, I had a ton of egg yolks in my fridge.

Egg yolks mean Ice Cream and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. We’ve had an unseasonably cool summer here in San Diego, but last weekend brought on the heat! One day I had ice cream for lunch AND dinner. I felt pretty okay about that decision.

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

  2. Pour into ice cream maker according to the machine’s instructions. (I have one where you have to add ice and salt… it’s fun! But a little more work to pay attention…)

    Sounds yummy! Since we don’t have an ice cream maker, could I pour into molds and freeze as popsicles?
