Each spoonful of this refreshing mint gelato is delicious and it is not difficult to make either. The recipe uses a bunch of fresh mint leaves, so this is a great treat to make if you have some mint growing in your garden.

Frozen edges


Remove the container. The mint/ milk mixture should be beginning to turn hard around the edges. Mix the frozen parts into the liquid parts well and refreeze for another two hours. (Alternatively use an ice cream machine if you are lucky enough to own one).
