Reader recipe: Mint choc chip nice cream
This dairy-free icecream was the winning entry in Bite magazine's reader competition calling for original blender recipes. It won Jonaye Griffin a Vitamix Ascent High Performance Blender. Her recipe completely won us over. It's creamy and perfectly green and minty thanks to just the right amount of spinach and mint. The Bite test kitchen adapted the recipe slightly to suit the brand of coconut cream we use to make dairy-free icecream. Different brands can give quite different results.
- Blend all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, until smooth. Pour into a container with a sealable lid and freeze for 1 hour.
- Scoop the partially frozen contents out of the container back into the blender and blend again.
- Return the mix to the container and gently stir in the chocolate chips. Return container with the mix back to the freezer until frozen.
