Dairy-Free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Rich and creamy and delightfully simple. You'll want to make a habit of keeping a banana in the freezer so you can make this whenever the urge for ice cream strikes.  



1 banana, chopped and frozen

1/2 ripe avocado

1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1-3 fresh mint leaves

2 spoonfuls dairy-free chocolate chips

(Optional) Liquid sweetener to taste



  1. Puree banana, avocado, vanilla and mint in a food processor until it reaches a creamy consistency.
  2. Taste and add sweetener if desired (I don't use any). Maple syrup, stevia, honey, and coconut nectar would all work here, as would any other liquid sweetener.
  3. Spoon into bowl and stir in chocolate chips.

Serves 1
