You’re a mean one…MR. GRINCH! We are huge Grinch fans at our house. HUGE! We love all the movies (original is our favorite). Blakely watches it on repeat, and I grew up watching it every year too.

She even started calling her chocolate pudding “who pudding” and referred to a friend’s house as being “just north of Who-ville”! Ha!

Needless to say, she was ALL IN when I told her we were going to make GRINCH ICE CREAM for Christmas! Yes, ice cream…even at Christmas!

Grinch Ice Cream for Christmas

The thing about this ice cream is that you don’t need a fancy schmancy ice cream maker. Nope! Just an electric mixer (or hand mixer will do).

A few years ago, I made Rudolph Ice Cream and we still talk about how easy and tasty it was. This year, it’s Grinch Ice Cream.

Ice Cream Recipe Notes

The ice cream is flavored mint with peppermint extract so it’s similar to mint chocolate chip ice cream without the chocolate chips.

For the red heart detail, I use red heart sprinkles because in Who-ville “they say – that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day. And then – the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength ten Grinches plus two!

When you have your ice cream mixed up, either pour into a metal container with wax paper on top or down in cute pint containers for easy gifting! I just made DIY Grinch Ice Cream Stickers (free printable below).

You can find the heart sprinkles here on Amazon or check the baking aisle of craft stores. They can be tricky to find though, so I opted for Amazon. Plus, I can save extras for Valentine’s Day baking!

That’s IT! It’s super simple and freezes overnight. Try your hand at lots of different flavors (including my Rudolph Ice Cream with pretzels and red candies)!
