YES, there is EVOO in this ice cream and it makes for the most divine texture straight from the freezer. Thank me later, or I suppose thank Cobram Estate really. You need to use a good quality EVOO with a mild taste and they have plenty of those and their products are very easy to source.
I was asked to get something green sorted for St. Patricks Day and this is it baby! No green smoothie or something with green stout in it. Ugh. St. Patricks Day is very big in the USA, and becoming more so here as the world becomes such a global community. SO, St. Patrick, here's to you! Chocolate and Peppermint (and EVOO), you just can't go wrong!
