Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Since it's finally warming up here, we're in the mood for homemade ice cream!
Recipe from 

2 cups 2% milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. mint or peppermint extract
3 drops green food coloring (optional)
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips*
  1. In a large bowl, stir together everything, except the chocolate chips, until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. After about 10 minutes into the freezing, add the chocolate chips. After the ice cream has thickened, about 30 minutes later, spoon into a container and freeze for 2 hours. Serves 10.
*Chocolate chips can be finely chopped (think Starlight Mint) if you don't like whole chips.
