Eggless Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Recipe - Mint Ice Cream with Mint Sauce

I had this vision of making a mint icecream with mint sauce for a long time. I have tasted it lots of times in baskin robbins, it is my sissy favorite icecream. So i wanted to recreate it so badly. I used to buy a bunch of mint to make this ice cream, then i used to forget and the mint will either turn bad or gets used up in other recipes.

Check out the ice cream collection here

Finally i made a bunch of mint leaves couple weeks back and made it the very next day. First i thought of making this with GMS & CMC like my vanilla icecream recipe. Then i thought to make it plain and simple using cornflour so everyone can try it out,. 

I used fresh mint leaves and little mint essence to make this. If you dont have mint essence, you can use few drops of vanilla essence. it will still taste great. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
