Frozen thin mint cheesecake recipe!

Met Éireann says this heatwave is set to continue – so what better way to make the most of the sun than by munching on these delicious frozen treats!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 packet of oreos
  • 1 package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract
  • Green food colouring
  • 1 carton of whipped cream

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Lightly butter a pan or use a non-stick pan. Set aside.
  2. In a blender pulse the entire package of oreos until fine crumbs.
  3. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and spread them evenly along the bottom. Press them down with the back of a spatula.
  4. Use the same bowl to mix the cream cheese. Using hand mixers, mix the cream cheese for about three-four minutes until very creamy. Slowly add in the sweetened condensed milk and continue to mix with the hand mixers for another two-three minutes.
  5. Using a spatula scrape down the sides and continue to mix for another minute.
  6. Mix in the peppermint extract and food colouring. Do as much food colouring as you want until you reach the desired colour you want your cheesecake to be.
  7. With the spatula, fold in the whipped cream. Be careful to not over mix with the rest of the ingredients.
  8. Freeze overnight or for at least eight hours.
  9. Serve directly from the freezer and return to the freezer as soon as you are finished serving.
