5 ingredient homemade mint chocolate chip avocado ice cream recipe that is raw, dairy and nut free!
Get ready for some rich, creamy homemade ice cream that is full of ingredients you recognize. And did we mention it’s only takes 5 ingredients to make this ice cream!
This ice cream recipe is an updated version of our quick mint avocado chocolate chip soft serve that we made years ago. Even though we love our original recipe, we wanted to make more of ice cream instead of soft serve.
We are so thrilled and happy with the way this new recipe came out and think you will love it also.
We mean… really…what is not to love? Mint. Chocolate chips. Avocados. Coconut butter.
Yes please! Load it up.
Since it is still hot outside we are still feeling like cold and refreshing desserts. And this velvety mint chip ice cream hit the spot.
And this friends… is perfect for those hot humid days that you just want something cold.
We love using avocados or cashews for our basis for raw, no ice cream maker needed, easy to make ice cream recipes.
To be honest… those are the only homemade ice cream recipes we have ever made. Guess we need to expand our ice cream making recipes to play with other ingredients.
Mint chocolate chip ice cream was an all time childhood favorite of ours.
Our two favorite flavors together. As you already know mint and chocolate is our go-to flavor for just about anything.
From raw layered cakes to mint protein bars to chia puddings to mint chocolate donuts to chocolate chip mint protein muffins.
Ready to see how we made it.
Though it is a little time consuming in that you have to stir every 30 minutes for about 2-3 hours.
Promise it’s worth it!!!!!
That stirring every 30 minutes makes a HUGE difference in making homemade ice creams with no ice cream makers. Trust us. We made this without stirring frequently and it turned out too icy not creamy.
Learn from us. Take the effort to stir. Use your gymboss timer to remind you to stir every 30 minutes. That’s what we did.
