Here's a question for you... when you buy mint, it usually just says "mint." How do you know what kind of mint it is? I ask because I am allergic to peppermint, but not to spearmint. So if I made it with spearmint, this is something I could have! Except that I don't have an ice cream maker. But maybe I'll get one eventually! :)

Good question!  I would think you could make it with spearmint, if you wanted.

But how do I know what I'm buying if it only says "mint" on the package? I even asked at my local grocery store once which kind it was and they didn't know. :/

Sounds like it would taste good. A light summer treat.

I'd look for a health food store that would KNOW, or else buy your own spearmint plant.

Maybe a health food store, or a whole foods would have them individually? That way you would know for sure.

the funny thing is, we have mint growing right outside and I don't know what kind it is either! LOL

The peppermint plant grows taller than the spearmint plant about 4' tall and the peppermint leaves are larger. When blooming peppermint has a purplish blossom while spearmint has a pink to light to dark blue blossom not approaching purple. Peppermint also quite often has a purplish hue to the stems and leaves. Peppermint leaves are usually arranged further away from the main stems and have more teeth than spearmint leaves. Spearmint stems, while lacking the purple, are distinctly square while peppermint stems aren't.
