Pope Fitness: Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

This homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream gets the green color from a top-secret ingredient (ok, I’m going to let you in on it). It’s a healthy treat and a great way to get some greens in 😉

This recipe makes 2 servings.


– 1 medium banana, cut into chunks

– ¼ cup canned lite coconut milk

– ¾ cup fresh spinach

– ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

– ¼ tsp pure peppermint extract

– ¼ cup mini chocolate chips


1. Place the banana in a plastic bag and freeze for 4 hours (or until it’s completely frozen).

2. Place coconut milk and spinach in the blender; cover and blend until smooth.

3. Add the frozen banana and extracts. Blend until smooth.

4. Add chocolate chips and mix well with a spoon or spatula.

5. Pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze until set.
