Mint Chocolate Chip "Nice" Cream
- 6 ripe, spotted bananas
- 1 tsp spirulina powder
- 1-2 tbsp fresh mint leaves (or 1 drop peppermint extract)
- 2 tbsp raw cacao nibs
- 1 scoop Amla Green
- Peel bananas and slice into a few chunks. Freeze on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper overnight (if doing this step ahead of time, once frozen, transfer to a tupperware container for long-term storage).
- Place frozen bananas in food processor or high speed blender. *Important: Allow to thaw for a few minutes before blending so that appliance will not overheat or blades become dull.
- Add a scoop of Amla Green powder.
- Once blended smooth, add in spirulina powder until desired hue of green is achieved.
- Add in mint leaves or peppermint extract to taste.
- Transfer your serving to a bowl, top with cacao nibs, and enjoy!
