Healthy Mint Choc-Chip Ice Cream | Did someone say Avocado?
Do your sniff out vegetables and avoid them with a passion?
Then you’ll love this healthy Mint Choc-Chip Ice Cream recipe.
It’s free from refined sugar and manages to mask an entire avocado among the goodness of coconut milk, maple syrup, peppermint and dark chocolate. We call it genius. Your tiny humans would go with sneaky!
All you need to whip up a healthy alternative to the sugary store-bought ice creams is a high-speed food processor and 5 minutes of your time. Oh, and deciding whether you use our best-selling Frosties, Tubies or Poddies to turn this recipe into a crowd-pleasing winner.
All 3 create super cute ice cream shapes, but each comes with its own benefits:
Tubies emboss cute bunny, cat and bear characters into mess-free push up ice pops.
Frosties come in the shape of bunny, cat and bear, and an easy-to-hold pop stick.
Poddies turn regular ice scoop portions into fun-filled cat, bunny and bear delights.
Which one you go for is entirely up to you. No matter what, rest assured that each of them LOVES a dishwasher session to take the stress out of snack time for you.
Now all you have to do is sit back and snack. That’s if your tiny humans leave one for you!
