Buy Peppermint Stick Ice Cream
It's So Christmassy! The colors and flavors of Peppermint Ice cream are so festive. Pink, vanilla mint ice cream with pretty pieces of candy canes just screams "Christmas". This ice cream is best enjoyed with Holiday music and a mug of hot cocoa.

Easy to Make: Philadelphia style ice cream recipes are easier than traditional custard based recipes, but still have a wonderful creamy texture. There's no cooking involved in this Peppermint Ice Cream recipe.
No Chemicals: Store bought ice creams are often filled with preservatives. You don't need any to make this homemade ice cream recipe. Peppermint ice creams will also typically have food dyes in them, particularly red #40. If you choose dye free candy canes, this recipe will be dye free.
Candy Canes - Crush the candy canes into small pieces. You should end up with some chunks, but a good amount of candy cane "dust" as well. Choose dye-free candy canes if you want an all-natural ice cream.
Peppermint Extract - Peppermint extract, along with the candy canes, is the flavor star in this minty dessert. Make sure you use peppermint, rather than plain mint or wintergreen. Using one of those will make your ice cream taste like toothpaste rather than peppermint candy.
Store this Peppermint Stick ice cream in the freezer in an airtight container (we really like these reusable ice cream containers) with a piece of parchment paper or wax paper pressed on top for up to one month.
Make this recipe any time - If you want to make peppermint ice cream, but it's March or July and you can't find candy canes, just use red and white starlight mints instead. Peppermint sticks can sometimes be found year round as well.
Crushing candy canes or peppermint sticks is easy, and a great way to burn off some steam! Just place your candy canes into a gallon size freezer bag. Seal the bag, and use a kitchen mallet, heavy rolling pin, or a small hammer to smash them into small pieces.
The two are actually very different. For this recipe, or any that call for peppermint extract, you should be sure not to use mint extract. The flavor of mint extract is too minty and strong for peppermint ice cream.
Hi Amanda,I think you can use a combination of cashew milk (in place of the whole milk) and full fat coconut cream (in place of the heavy cream), and get a similar "ice cream" consistency. The peppermint should cover up most of the coconut flavor.

I grew up looking so forward to the peppermint ice cream that Mom would pick up at the grocery store every December. It was pink with little specks of red and green peppermint bits. I was prone to standing at the kitchen counter with a spoon and a container of ice cream. Makes me smile just thinking of it.

Step 2Temper eggs/make ice cream mixture. Pour the whole milk and heavy cream into a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until it reaches 165 degrees on a digital thermometer, stirring often. Do not boil.
Then pour the contents of the bowl into the saucepan and place it back on the heat, along with the crushed peppermint. Continue whisking and heating until the mixture reaches 165 degrees and the peppermint is fully dissolved.

I thought this was just a small town issue until today, in our big city grocery store, I saw a sign on the Hudsonville Peppermint Stick ice cream limiting people to 2 containers. This is serious business.
Thank you for posting this! I have recently found out that I am allergic to egg whites, cows milk, pretty much all nuts, wheat and soy and a host of other foods making it difficult to figure out what to eat! I love peppermint ice cream and look forward to making this in my ice cream freezer!!!
MAKE IT DAIRY-FREE: Use vegan cream cheese for cream cheese, unsweetened coconut cream for heavy cream, and unsweetened oat milk for whole milk. Whisk the coconut cream until smooth, then add the remaining ingredients.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, microwave the cream cheese for 10 seconds. Add the sugar and peppermint extract and with a whisk or rubber spatula, combine until the mixture looks like frosting, about 60 seconds.
*Note: The pale pink appearance of this ice cream comes from processed peppermint candies and will vary depending on the brand used. If a deeper pink is desired, add a few drops of red food coloring.
Candy canes are a universal sign of the holidays and although it's been in the freezer case at the grocery store for more than a month now, I am finally allowing myself to give in and enjoy one of my favorite holiday treats: Peppermint Stick ice cream!
]( _c/2010/12/IMG_1102-90225.html)There are several brands of peppermint stick ice cream available at the store and I pretty much like all of them. But if you are looking for a healthier version of this classic holiday treat, try Edy's Slow Churned Peppermint Stick. As I have written about in the past, the slow churning process of making ice cream allows the makers to cut calories and fat without adding sugar or artificial ingredients. I don't think you always have to go for light ice cream (I often choose all natural, limited ingredient brands like Breyer's) but the holidays are a time when we are all taking in a few extra calories because of the parties so having the option of saving a few on your ice cream is nice! Slow churned isn't an excuse to fill the bowl, but since peppermint stick ice cream is one of my favorite holiday treats I am excited to have a little after dinner these next 10 days leading up to Christmas! Ice cream isn't your thing? Try other delicious holiday treats (that are healthy, too!): A fun twist on traditional holiday cookies, sinless chocolate desserts or skip the sweets and try whipping up a new recipe to go along with your holiday dinner. Enjoy!

Nana always used star mints (round peppermint candies) to make her ice cream, but my sister-in-law Britta discovered a few years back that candy canes are way better (sorry Nana). Candy canes break up into thinner pieces than star mints, and are easier to crunch up in your mouth. This photo above is how finely you want to crush the peppermint that is folded into the cream before churning.
This is the best Peppermint ice cream I have ever eaten. And Peppermint has always been a favorite! It looks and tastes just like described! I have now made it twice. Always perfect! I was skeptical about a whole tablespoon of vanilla but I used it!
Combine 1 tsp peppermint extract, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 1 cup whole milk, 3/4 cup heavy cream, 2 egg yolks, 1/4 cup crushed candy canes in a pot and cook on the stove at medium heat for 5 minutes, whisking constantly. This will ensure the eggs will not be scrambled.
Remove the lid from the pint and grab the Ninja Creami outer bowl. Place the pint securely into the outer bowl and cover with the lid. Once the lid is on, place the outer bowl into the machine, twisting to the right until it locks into place. Press the "Gelato" button and (try to) wait patiently for the creamy treat coming your way.
If you don't like following recipes, don't worry - you can customize it however you want! We personally use oat milk and coconut cream to avoid most of the dairy, and it's some of the best ice cream we've ever had.

Years ago, before being diagnosed with Celiac disease, I used to buy peppermint ice cream in the month or so leading up to Christmas. The one that I bought was filled with little pieces of candy cane.
Today you can find candy cane ice cream in the store, but it usually has chocolate, either chips or shavings, in it too. I prefer the ice cream with just the candy cane pieces in it, so I decided to re-create that ice cream at home. 041b061a72
