Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I made this Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream a few weeks back and, let me tell you, this is the best ice cream I have ever made. The other times I've made ice cream at home, the ice cream has either been too sweet or had an artificial taste. This ice cream, on the other hand, tasted just like the store-bought ice cream. This recipe is definitely a winner!

2 cups 2% milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 drops green food coloring (optional)
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, stir together the milk, cream, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and peppermint extract until the sugar has dissolved. Color to your liking with the green food coloring.

Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

After about 10 minutes into the freezing, add the chocolate chips. After the ice cream has thickened, about 30 minutes later, spoon into a container, and freeze for 2 hours.
