ice cream has no sugar in it ~
And no CREAM either ~
Only coconut milk!
It is yummy.
and one *secret* ingredient
to make it green ~
Can you believe it?
Shhh....don't tell my kids! :)
I found the original recipe here.
And then I tweaked it ~
Just a little.

~ Mint Ice Cream ~
Three 400ml tins premium quality coconut milk ~
Or just two if you use the liquidy stuff...
Make sure these are full fat, not *lite*! :)
1/2 cup Liquid Honey
1 cup Baby Spinach Leaves ~
Lightly steamed and cooled
2-3 tsp Peppermint Extract
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Chocolate Chips to taste ~
My photo does not show chocolate
chips since this was a chocolate-free batch.
It's super-duper yummy with chocolate
chips in it though!
Scoop off the top heavy cream from
your tins of coconut milk and
discard the watery stuff ~
Or, if you are using all the contents
of the tin, just use two.
(I have done it both ways,
and I prefer the taste when
the watery stuff is not included).
Place into blender or a deep bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients
and blend ~ I use a deep bowl and
mix it all up well with my immersion blender.
Taste and adjust flavourings.
Process in your ice cream maker according
to manufacturer's specifications.
If adding chocolate chips,
do so at the end of churning and
fold in until well distributed.
Transfer to a freezer container.
Store in the deep freeze until
ready to use.
Thaw a few minutes prior to scooping.
