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
Blend all ingredients, aside from the chocolate in a blender until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Put the mixture into a freezer-proof container, cover with a lid then freeze for an hour or so.
Blend again before serving to make the ice cream a little creamier.
