ingredients

  • 8 tbsp artificial sweetener
  • 400g ready-made, low-fat custard
  • 3 x 125g pots Danone Activia 0% fat Vanilla yogurt
  • 1-2 tsp peppermint extract
  • A few drops of green food colouring
  • 2 medium egg whites*
  • 50g dark chocolate chips

method

  1. Put the sweetener, custard, yogurt, peppermint extract and food colouring in a bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg whites until frothy.
  2. Add the egg whites to the custard mixture and stir well. Pour into a shallow, freezerproof container, cover and put in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
  3. Remove from the freezer and blend in a food processor until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips, then return the ice cream to the container, cover and freeze for 1-2 hours, or until starting to set around the edges.
  4. Remove from the freezer and use a fork to beat and break up the ice crystals. Freeze for a further 3-4 hours, beating with a fork every 30-40 minutes, until firm enough to scoop.
  5. Take the ice cream out of the freezer for 10-12 minutes before serving, and scoop into 6 bowls or small ice-cream pots.

Tip: *Pregnant women, the elderly, babies and toddlers are advised to choose eggs showing the British Lion stamp if eating raw or partially cooked eggs.
