This recipe is all natural and healthy yet tastes like decadent mint chocolate chip ice cream.

We love everything mint and had a craving for chocolate chip mint ice cream.

Since dairy free ice cream is very expensive – and we didn’t have any anyway – we decided to make our own from a variety of ingredients we already had.

This recipe combines many of our favorites – including mint – and uses a small amount of spinach for color and a healthy kick.  The flavor of the spinach is so mild that it is completely masked by the mint.
