Spinach Ice Cream recipe

This dish isn't strictly ice cream - nor is it strictly spinach flavoured. It's actually a mint chocolate chip slushie, frozen and then re-blended to make a delicious, creamy dessert that is a very healthy version of mint-choc chip ice cream. Plus, you'll be tricking your kids into eating spinach!


  • 1 large ripe frozen banana
  • 50ml milk
  • 50g fresh spinach
  • 25g caster sugar or artificial sweetener, adjust this to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. pure peppermint extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 50g dark chocolate chips


  1. Blend all ingredients, aside from the chocolate in a blender until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.

  2. Put the mixture into a freezer-proof container, cover with a lid then freeze for an hour or so.

  3. Blend again before serving to make the ice cream a little creamier.

Add more banana or more peppermint extract according to your tastes. You can get away with less sugar, too. This recipe serves 1.
