Lately for some reason salads have become unpalatable and I seem to be craving a lot of chocolate, cheese, wine & sweets…! I still aim to get all those super healthy greens into my day so I concocted two versions of “ice cream” one with chocolate mint and the other, green coconut. I feel so virtuous! My versions are nut-free and feel like you are actually getting in your greens in a pretty healthy way. This picture is from GLiving.com (a great resource for healthier treats!) and it is more of a dessert for sure :).
Chocolate Minty Ice Cream
Process in your mini cuisinart:
1 handful of fresh mint
1-2 large handfuls of fresh organic greens of choice (for extra green, throw in 1-2 chlorella tablets)
1 cup of ice
1 /2-1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen organic blueberries
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder (and some nibs if you have them around)
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
stevia powder (sub: medjool dates or maple syrup) to desired sweetness. pinch of celtic sea salt & cinnamon.
splash of coconut or almond milk + squeeze of fresh lemon
ENJOY & feel energized :).
