Spring is in the air! I have two very wet, sandy and sleepy dogs to prove it. Why not celebrate with a little green ice-cream.
Green ice-cream would also be a great way to celebrate your favourite St. Patrick's day run
Mint Cocoa Nib Ice-cream
2 very ripe frozen bananas
1 T cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips)
1/4 C tightly packed fresh mint leaves
1/4 C tightly packed raw spinach lightly steamed
1/4 C + 1T unsweetened soy milk (or milk of your choice)
1. In your blender combine frozen bananas, mint leaves, 1/4 C unsweetened soy milk and steamed spinach. Continue to add soy milk until ingredients are well combined. Make sure that there are absolutely no green bits or chunks!
2. Pour mixture into a shallow dish and add cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips). Place in freezer until mixture is firm (approximately 1 hour).
3. Serve with fresh mint leaves and additional cocoa nibs.
You might want to share but maybe only a spoonful.
