Mint Chocolate Chip Ice "Cream"

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice “Cream”

 We have been enjoying making banana ice cream since I first read about it over a year ago.  We have tried many combinations, all good, with added nuts, toasted coconut, chocolate, cocoa powder, berries, other fruits, but when I came across adding spinach I really wasn’t sure.  However, there are greens in my favourite smoothie and it tastes great!. I had nothing to lose by giving it a try! The original recipe uses mint extract but I love the flavour of the fresh mint leaves, fresh from my garden.  Currently it is the house favourite and amazes everyone who tries it!


Recipe

2 frozen bananas

1 cup spinach

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

1/4 cup coconut milk  


Using blender or food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth.  Stir in 2 tbsp dark mini chocolate chips.  Freeze until firm.
