Mint Chocolate Chip Ice ‘Cream’ (Vegan)

Here’s the deal. This was delicious. And if your local grocer doesn’t carry any brands of nondairy ice ‘creams’, this is a great replacement.

That being said….it’s not cost effective. It would be way cheaper to just buy it. It’s a good recipe to have but I don’t know that I’ll be making it unless I have the ingredients on hand and don’t feel like going to the store.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cans Coconut Milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped vegan dark chocolate (I’m a fan of enjoy life, it’s gluten free too)
  • 5 drops of green food coloring

Directions:

  1. Scoop the thick cream part of the coconut milk cans into a bowl. Be sure not to get the water part, you only want the thick cream. You can discard the coconut water but that’s a waste, I’d save that for smoothies or just to drink!
  2. Add you powdered sugar, peppermint extract and food coloring to the bowl.
  3. Using a hand mixer, whip everything up until fluffy. This does not take very long at all!
  4. Fold in chocolate chips and freeze for a couple hours!
