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