i’m writing this post as i’m eating what i can’t believe is not actual mint chip ice cream. seriously, this recipe is so damn good and proof that you don’t need to eat food that’s ridiculously unhealthy in order to satisfy any sort of craving. every time i eat this (aka every other day) not only does my sweet tooth go away, but i am actually left feeling full. this nice cream is seriously like a full meal.
recipe below. please try it and let me know what you think.
1/2 avocado (fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 frozen bananas (slightly over-ripe)
1-2 handfuls of baby spinach
1 tsp melted coconut oil
3-4 dashes of peppermint extract
splash of vanilla extract
teeny splash of unsweetened almond milk or water
1/2 palmful of cacao nibs (and more to top off)
place all ingredients in food processor or blender (i use a ninja express chop)
process/blend until smooth (you may need to scrape down the sides a few times to get it all together). the more you continue to blend, the more it will look like ice cream.
serve in a bowl.
top with more cacao nibs.
keep eating. make more if you want… it’s good for you. 🙂
