Gluten Free Vanilla Mint Ice Cream




About: I like to make food and create recipes! I share them here because it makes the world more efficient if we all share good ideas. I have a gluten/dairy free child who inspires much of what I create in the ...

This mint ice cream is so amazing that it doesn't even need any chocolate.  It tastes so much better than store bought mint ice cream!!

2 cups vanilla ice cream
large handful of fresh mint leaves, washed and stems removed

Put the mint leaves and ice cream in your food processor, and pulse until it starts to come together.  You will have to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl frequently.  When it starts to mix well, turn the food processor on high and let it spin for about 20-30 seconds...until it is completely smooth and combined.  Serve immediately, or store in the freezer.

Notes:  This is kind of cheating because I didn't make the actual ice cream....but when you serve this, feel free to announce that you "made it" because technically you did.  Its very impressive at a dinner party, served alongside tiny flourless chocolate cakes.

    I make an 'ice cream' with coconut milk - the real deal is nearly $3 a can with no additives or thickeners. Chill it and then process with some frozen fruit.

    My dietist told me to stay away of not just gluten but most cow-based dairies as well. I'm looking for a way to make ice cream with no milk, if you find something please tell me. I'm dying for some soft ice cream, too!
