Vegan Mint Ice Cream

Chloe loves mint chip ice cream. We decided to make a Phoebe friendly version. We left the chocolate chips out but you can add them if you want.

Step 1: Pour 2 c almond milk into large bowl.

Step 2: Add 1/2 c sugar.

Step 3: Slowly sprinkle 1/2 t guar gum
as you whisk vigorously. 

Step 4: Add 1/2 t peppermint extract.

Step 5: Add 3 or 4 drops of green food coloring.

OK, maybe one more drop.

Step 6: Turn ice cream maker on.
Pour mixture into ice cream maker
and let it go for 20 to 25 minutes.

Caution: The first time we made this, we used 1 t peppermint extract. Way too strong for Phoebe! Trust us, pure peppermint extract is potent stuff. You may want to add 1/4 t at a time and have your child taste it.
