Mint Chocolate Chip "Nice Cream"

I'll start with saying this. This isn't a recipe for everyone on a low sodium diet restriction. If you have to limit your potassium, this might not work for you.

This recipe is very simple. It's 4 bananas, some peppermint extract, chocolate chips and some food dye if you'd like. But I love to make this as a nice healthy treat every once and while when I'm craving ice cream, but don't want the guilt.


  • 4 ripe bananas - you don't want any green in the banana or it will turn bitter

  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips

  • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract

  • (Optional) Green food dye, or add some spinach, matcha or spirulina if you'd like the green color.


  • Slice bananas into bite size hunks and layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. They can touch, but you don't want to overlap. Freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.

  • Once frozen, add your bananas to a blender and whirl until it gets a nice creamy consistency.

  • Note: You may need to add a bit of water (a couple tablespoons) while you're blending to get a smooth consistency. You don't want to add too much and make it smoothie-like. It is better to push the banana down towards the center and keep blending if possible.

  • Stir in peppermint extract, chocolate chips and optional food coloring. Smooth the mix into a freezer safe container and freeze for a couple of hours.
