I just made some and it took me back to being a small child getting an ice cream from the sweet shop.

2 cans coconut milk (chilled for a few hours or overnight)
Half cup of sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
20 After Eight mints
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
Optional dab of green food colouring

Blend the coconut milk, vanilla and sugar (and food colouring if you're using it) until smooth. Add the xanthan gum and blend on high speed for a minute, until slightly frothy. With the blender running add the After Eights and blend until incorporated. Freeze according to your ice cream maker's instructions. Eat and imagine you're on a beach in 1986.

Mmmmm. Mind chocolate chip is one of my favorite flavors. So cooling and refreshing on a hot summer day! Did you make up this recipe?

Boo :( I love chocolate-mint things. I just had the Alter Eco crispy mint chocolate bar for the first time yesterday, I may have eaten the whole thing...

I believe President's Choice carries an After Eight version that is vegan. Unless they discontinued them...

Yeah, it's cobbled together from what we had in the house.

I am totally going to try mixing chocolate mints into vanilla icecream when I get the chance!
