Drop Dead Recipes- Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
For this month’s #dropdeadrecipes series I have made some delicious plant-based mint chocolate chip ice cream. I was so stoked at how the flavour of this turned out. Considering it uses a coconut milk base, along with spirulina to tint it green, it is quite different from my old favourite mint chocolate chip ice cream. Those who have tried this can agree that it tastes just like the “real” thing. I think it tastes even better- no chemicals, preservatives, or dairy-induced stomach ache!
The thing about this ice cream is that it is best served as a soft-serve, or gelato texture. I like to freeze it for only 1-2 hours, so it’s still semi-soft.
It gets very hard if you leave it in the freezer for several hours, and will then take just as long to thaw and get back to that gelato texture. Which is fine but when that ice cream craving hits, be prepared to wait a few hours before indulging!
One way to help with this would be to process the mixture in an ice cream maker once it is chilled. I wanted to make this recipe accessible to everyone, though and let’s face it- not everyone has an ice cream maker!
This green ice cream was made to coincide with Drop Dead Clothing’s new Gremlins capsule collection. I used to rent the Gremlins movie quite often when I was a kid. The little Mogwai are sooo cute!! I thought this ice cream made an appropriate midnight snack- just don’t leave it hanging around. We all know what happens when the Mogwai eat after midnight.
