Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
4 tbsp or 1/4 cup fresh coconut milk or other milk substitute
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
1 cup baby spinach or curly kale
3 to 5 drops of food grade peppermint oil or mint extract
4 bananas, frozen
3 tablespoons raw cacao nibs or mini chocolate chips.
handful Fresh mint leaves, optional
Add coconut milk and spinach to blender and blend until as smooth as possible. Add maple syrup, bananas, peppermint oil and leaves. Start on low and slowly turn blender up to high, using the damper stick of the vitamix. Use the damper to mix well in all four corners, for about 1 minute. Add cacao nibs or chocolate chips and pulse 3 times. Enjoy immediately or allow to set for one hour in the freezer.
