This amazing and easy mint ice cream recipe is a great treat for the hottest days of the year. We love to use the girl scout cookies that we buy since they’ve got such an amazing mint flavor! If you’d like to use other cookies, you can, but we’d recommend getting some of these great ones!
We love to use the combination of the spearmint flavor from the cookies and the peppermint flavor from the extract to give us a fantastic balance between those two extremes – cooler and hotter. Combined, they make for an ice cream that has a real depth of flavor – that’s something you just don’t see too often!
If you’d like to mix this up, then you could try adding a few sprinkles of your other favorite girl scout cookie – perhaps something with chocolate or vanilla. This would make the overall dish all the tastier, and would be hard to say no to! Mint and coconut are also a wonderful combination, so perhaps try to hunt down some macaroons – that would surely make for a lovely dessert.
Finally, a quick tip before the recipe: leave a few big chunks of cookie in the ice cream, as this will be an exciting find for whoever gets it!
