Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Servings: 6 cups
Prep Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 30 mins
This Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is creamy, sweet, fresh and minty...  and secretly good for you too!  You'd never know it's all natural, sugar free, low carb, high protein, and even keto too!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Freeze your ice cream maker bowl for 24+ hours (I used my KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment).
  • In a blender, add the cottage cheese, a splash of half and half, and the mint leaves. Blend until completely smooth.  Add the remaining half and half, stevia extract, vanilla extract, mint flavor, and chlorophyll/natural food coloring.  Blend until smooth.
  • Place the frozen ice cream maker attachment onto the stand mixer and turn on the "stir" speed. Pour ice cream mixture into the ice cream bowl and churn until soft-serve consistency.
  • Transfer the ice cream into a freezer-safe dish. Cover and freeze until it's the texture you prefer (~3-5 hours). Serve with extra chocolate chips and a fresh sprig of mint!

Recipe Notes

  • *If you don't have fresh mint, omit it and increase the mint flavor to 4 tsp
