Shamrock Mint Soft Serve: Dairy Free

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

Recipe: Shamrock Shake Soft Serve! This is way too thick and creamy to fit through a straw! Mmm.. Made homemade ice cream before? Growing up, my family had an ice cream maker and we would make it all the time. White sugar, heavy cream, takes about a half hour in the freezer bowl. This is so healthy, so quick, and it barely costs anything. Much more delicious alternative to a shamrock shake too.

This batch had bee pollen and chopped banana chips instead of chocolate chips :) yuum!

Prep:

  • Make sure bananas are ripe and peeled before you freeze them
  • Chop chocolate chips
  • Wash, de-stem kale
  • Measure ingredients roughly

 You will need…

  • Food Processor
  • Rubber spatula
  • Giant bowl
  • Spoon
  • Hungry tummies

Ingredients

  • 5 frozen bananas
  • 7 fresh kale leaves
  • 7 fresh mint leaves
  • a dash of vanilla
  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips

Steps

  1. Peel and freeze bananas

Bananas: Make sure you wait until they are spotted brown, you absorb more nutrients and get a sweeter banana!

  • Potassium: essential for maintaining proper heart function and regulating normal blood pressure
  • Vitamin B6: important for amino acid metabolism
  • Vitamin C: antioxidant, boosts your immune system
  • Fiber: great for digestion helps regularity and fullness
  • Reduce Stress: they are high in the amino acid tryptophan, which converts into the feel good neurotransmitter serotonin in your brain
  • Hangover cure: because alcohol depletes nutrients like potassium and bananas help to replenish that
  1. Kale and greens goes in the food processor or blender first! Then bananas on top of greens

Kale: wash, dry, and de-stem before adding to the food processor.

  • Fiber- regularity and satiety. GI health, fullness
  • Calcium- Connie Weaver’s study 9/11 subjects better available calcium from kale!
  • Vitamin E – fat soluble antioxidant
  • Vitamin K – blood health
  1. Process until smooth, adding water or non-dairy milk as necessary or desired
  2. Fold in chopped chocolate chips

Chocolate: Cacao powder has beneficial antioxidants and iron!

I didn't have chocolate chips when I made this batch, so I added bee pollen and chopped banana chips for a little crunch :)
