Clean Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (No Ice Cream Maker Needed)

Monday, March 17, 2014



Happy St. Patrick's Day! We celebrated yesterday by having our friends over for a little St. Patty's Day feast complete with corned beef, Irish Soda Bread and Guinness.  It was a great time!  

To keep things festive around here I made this yummy treat for the boys...who actually ate it for breakfast :)

It is delicious, healthy and unbelievably easy!

What you will need:
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 3 giant handfuls of fresh spinach 
  • 2 tbs of coconut milk (almond milk will also work) 
  • 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract (or 2 fresh mint leaves) 
  • a few tbs of enjoy life chocolate chips 
Directions:
  1. Add everything except the chocolate chips into a high powered blender.  Blend until you have a nice smooth ice cream like consistency. 
  2. Add in the chocolate chips and pulse for a few seconds. 
  3. Place in the freezer to harden up a little or serve immediately and enjoy!

Love this. I was so excited when I figured out the whole frozen banana-ice cream similarity. A perfect treat for St Patty's Day!

Made this for my kids tonight and it was surprisingly delicious! I was honestly shocked. :) Added just a teeny bit of chocolate and it really reminded me of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Thank you so much!

So I wanted to say thankyou for being so beautiful, positive and inspiring. If you want to see what I wrote it's at mysweetexpectations.blogspot.com.au Xxxx

PEPPERMINT CHOCOLATE
This is a before or after dinner mint that packs a lot more than a refreshing feeling after you consume it. This is pure delight for your taste buds.
