Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream ~ Plant based!



My dad and I used to fight over the mint chip ice cream when I was a kid. Okay, so some foods have emotional ties and this one sure does for me! While we don’t eat many sweets, Mountain Man and I do enjoy some plant-based ice cream occasionally, especially in these hot summer months. THIS delivers in a big way! I love making my own ice cream. Even the vegan brands in the store contain fillers and thickeners which I really don’t care to eat. Plus, it’s EASY and it’s so much fun watching the mixture churn and grow as it’s forming.

The base of this deliciousness is cashews for ultra creaminess. Yes, it’s high in calories and fat… like I said, an occasional indulgence. You will need an ice cream maker for this one. I found a great churner on Amazon here. It is reasonably priced and just so easy to use. And, of course, you’ll need a good blender for that wonderful smooth texture! Do you own a Vitamix yet? I highly recommend them and use mine daily!

So what’s the best way to store your work of art? I found these great ice cream storage containers, again on Amazon, here. They really are great and come in some fun colors, too!


Enjoy and stay cool!

Healthy trails,
