Mint Chocolate Chip Banana Ice Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip Banana Ice Cream


  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 5 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced, and frozen
  • Non-dairy milk (optional)
  • Sugar (optional)


  1. Place chocolate chips in a food processor and pulse until broken up into smaller pieces. Remove and set aside.
  2. Place spinach and mint extract in food processor and process until spinach is broken up into small bits and resembles a paste, about 1 minute. Add bananas and pulse about 1 minute until smoothly blended, stirring by hand several times if frozen chunks gather and stick. (If necessary, add 1 splash non-dairy milk to ease the process.) Taste mixture and add extra mint extract or sugar if needed. Add chocolate chips and pulse several times, just enough to mix into batter.
  3. Enjoy immediately as soft serve, or transfer ice cream to an airtight container and freeze at least 1 hour for a firmer dessert.
