🍌 Treat Yo Self 😃 Mint Choc Chip Breakfast Nice Cream 🍌


I love giving desserts a healthy vegan makeover- and I find that with a little creativity, a few bananas and a pinch of fairy dust (well, stevia powder anyway), there aren't many desserts you can't give the healthy-vegan treatment.

In this series of posts I'll show you how to make breakfast nice creams that taste so darn good you won't believe they are vegan friendly, dairy-free, gluten-free, and free from refined sugar.

The first is my take on a classic ice cream flavour- mint choc chip. It's really easy to make and looks and tastes like the real thing. Even better, you get an antioxidant boost from the spinach that gives the nicecream its lovely green colour- no artificial colourings needed!

This breakfast serves one generously- in the words of the fabulous Mae West, too much of a good thing can be wonderful! 😃

🍨 Mint Choc Chip Nicecream 🍨

3 1/2 ripe bananas
Handful spinach
6 mint leaves (plus a sprig of mint to decorate)
1 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk of your choice
2 heaped tablespoons of chocolate chunks (either cacao nibs or a sugar-free vegan chocolate bar cut up into small pieces. Make sure that the chocolate is gluten free if gluten is an issue for you.)

Chop the bananas into chunks, put them into a plastic food bag, and then pop them in the freezer overnight. When you're ready for breakfast, put the bananas, dairy-free milk, spinach and 6 mint leaves in a blender and blend until smooth. Stir through the chocolate chunks using a spoon, and then spoon the nicecream into a bowl. Add a sprig of mint for decoration and serve immediately.

Dig in and enjoy!
