“Mint Ice Milk”

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time1 hr 35 mins


  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup torn fresh mint leaves
  • ½ cup sugar


  • Combine the milk, mint, and sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has completely dissolved, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover partially with a lid, and let the milk infuse with the mint for 20 minutes.
  • Pour the mint milk into a blender and blend until uniform. Let it cool for 10 to 15 minutes, then pour the liquid into a freezer-safe container or baking pan.
  • Place in the freezer until solid and cover the container to store.
  • When ready to serve, let the ice milk sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes, then scrape with a large spoon. It will be slightly slushy, but not as slushy as a granita.
