Clean Eating Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream (Video)
I love my readers (viewers) SO much.
I probably should stop to tell you a little more often just how much YOU inspire me.
It’s like a relationship that you take for granted.
You know the ones.
You have someone who loves, encourages, and supports you so consistently that you stop kind of noticing simply because they’re always there.
Yeah, well… no more!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
Thank you one hundred times for reading, watching and supporting me.
For sharing your ideas and feedback, sharing my website with your friends, and helping me to learn and grow through the process of creating Clean & Delicious®.
This recipe comes to you courtesy of reader, Karina. After posting my ‘How-To freeze Bananas‘ video a couple weeks back, Karina shared this delicious idea in the comments:
“My favorite recipe (and the kids) is spinach icecream! 2 frozen bananas, 40g spinach, pinch of salt (absolutely need as this helps break down the spinach), peppermint extract (few drops) and some chocolate chips!
As soon as I read this comment I ran to the kitchen and made it.
And then I made it again. And again. And again…
It is delicious, addicting, and absolutely brilliant so I just had to share it in a video!
So thank you Karina for taking the time to share – it’s a new family favorite around here.
And as for the rest of you creative cooks… What other flavors do you think would work with the banana ice cream? Have you done any experimenting? I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas down below;)!
