Ingredients needed to prepare Mint Oreo ice-cream

  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 2 cups of  milk
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 2-3 drops of green food colouring, if you want to add
  • 1 cup of crushed Oreos (about 6 to 8 cookies)

Instructions

Make the mint: In a small to medium saucepan, whisk together the heavy cream, granulated sugar, and salt. Add the fresh mint and cook the mixture on the stove over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it begins to boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let mint steep for an hour.

Combine the rest of the ingredients: in a large bowl, while pouring the cream into a large bowl, Strain the mint from the mixture. Whisk in the milk, vanilla extract, and mint/peppermint extract, plus enough food colouring to get the perfect shade of mint green.

Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate until the mixture is chilled for at least 5 to 6 hours, but preferably overnight. If you have a kitchen thermometer, you’ll know it’s cold enough when the temperature drops below 40ºF.

Churn: Stir the ice-cream mixture quickly to smooth it and then mix it according to the ice cream maker’s instructions. Once the ice cream is almost churned, add the chopped Oreos. Continue churning until the cookies are dispersed and the ice cream is sufficiently frozen and thick.

Freeze: Transfer your ice cream to a freezer-safe container with a lid, or store it in a metal loaf pan, and cover the surface with plastic wrap and wrap the entire pan in a double layer of foil. Freeze well, preferably overnight!

Tips for making the perfect homemade ice-cream

Use heavy cream: More fat equals to softer, creamier ice cream. We’re not going to make frozen yoghurt or sorbet so don’t skip the full fat cream!

Fast freezing: The faster your ice cream freezes, the less chance ice crystals will form. That’s why it’s important to begin with a thoroughly-chilled ice cream base (colder than 40ºF before freezing) and use an efficient ice cream maker (one with a fully frozen bowl).

Store properly: As mentioned above, make sure your ice cream is stored in a freezer-safe container or in a metal pan and is well wrapped with plastic wrap and aluminium foil.  Then, place it towards the back of your freezer, where the temperature is coolest and less susceptible to warm drafts from opening and closing your freezer door.

FAQ:
