Mint Chocolate & Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Recipe

Food not only fuels our bellies, but also our experiences and memories in life.  Now I have my own kitchen, where I can create and share recipes that I never would have thought to make years ago.

For instance, I recently learned how to make coconut milk ice cream. I wonder if everyone has memories of food that particularly stand out in their lives. Mine frequently involve some sort of sugary dessert, like the one below. How has food shaped your life? What are some of your most vivid memories that involve meals of the past and how did they shape your world into what it is today?


Mint Chocolate & Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

2 13.5 oz cans of coconut milk (or 2 cups of heavy cream)

1 cup of almond milk (or 1/2 & 1/2)

1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

1/3 cup honey

1-2 teaspoon mint extract

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

Skim the coconut fat cream off the top of the can and discard or set aside the coconut water for another use. With a mixer, blend the honey and cocoa powder. Add the cocoa mixture alternating with the almond milk to the coconut mixture and add the mint. Blend in ice cream maker until thick. Eat. Freeze. Enjoy. Makes about four servings or one if you are like me and devour the entire bowl yourself.
