Mint Chip with Kale Ice Cream! DON'T BE AFRAID
Meg and I are BIG ice cream enthusiasts, so we were extremely excited when we found a healthy ice cream recipe that we could eat EVERY NIGHT! Yes, there was kale in this recipe, but don't be afraid it did not taste like KALE ice cream. The kale gave the ice cream a beautiful green color and a nice bit of taste. We found the recipe on vegweb.com and we used evaporated cane juice instead of fake white sugar. Also, instead of the highly processed Nestle chocolate chips we used grain-sweetened chocolate chips that were delicious (these are usually available at any health food store such as Whole Foods). We also used fresh mint leaves instead of mint extract which made a HUGE difference. We threw all of the ingredients into my vita mix then transferred the mixture into my incredible Cuisinart ice cream maker. The result was a thick, creamy, and HEALTHY ice cream.
