I like to make recipes that use common household kitchen utensils and ingredients. I hate when I read a yummy recipe and it has so many things I would need to go out and buy.  I don’t have an ice cream maker handy.  I know a lot of people don’t just have that lying around but I love ice cream so, I created this “no ice cream maker required” Paleo Mint Chip Ice Cream.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Frozen Bananas
  • 2 tsp. Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 C. Full Fat Coconut Cream (the thick stuff off of the top of a refrigerated can of Coconut Milk)
  • 2 tsp. Honey
  • 1/8 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • A Dash of Alcohol Free Peppermint Extract (to do a dash, I use half of an 1/8 tsp.) but just tiny drop will do. You can add more depending on how minty you like your ice cream.
  • 2 TBSP. Chocolate Chips (I use Enjoy Life Brand)

Process:

  1. Freeze a bowl for 1 hour
  2. In a blender ( I use a Ninja), blend the Frozen Bananas until they are creamy. *You may have to stop and scrape the blender a few times with a spatula
  3. Add the Coconut Cream, Cocoa, Extracts, and Honey to the blender and combine until it is creamy. *You may need to stop and scape the blender a few times with a spatula
  4. Transfer the Ice Cream Mixture to your Frozen bowl and add the Chocolate chips. Hand stir the Ice Cream and chips together
  5. You may want to taste test and adjust your minty-ness to your liking before you re-freeze the ice cream
  6. Scrape all of the ice cream into a pile
  7. Place ice cream back in the freezer for 3 hours
