This, people, is so good, it’s bananas.
Oh – and it’s also mint.
But my kids think it’s mint chip ice cream, because, well, it tastes exactly like mint chip ice cream. Even my husband agreed.
I need to do some research and find the person who discovered this banana ice cream phenomenon. Who are you, mystery person? Because I think I love you.
Anyway, if you haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for? Seriously. You are going to be so mad when you see how easy it is…and how yummy it tastes.
And since we make it practically every night here, we have been experimenting. This mint chip version was totally blog worthy, especially if your garden is full of mint like mine is!
You do need a bad ass food processor like my Cuisinart, but you should have one anyway. I use mine all the time and it’s still going strong after almost a decade.
Just turn it on and watch the magic happen!
If you are a mint chip fan, give this one a try and let me know what you think!

Ice Cream is like my all time favorite indulgence. It is so nice to have a healthy alternative. My kids and I love this recipe!
Thank you! I agree, ice cream is life!!
Why is it considered 1 purple per serving when 2 bananas in my food process produces 1 cup (1 purple) for the whole thing?
Because 1/2 banana is one purple according to the plan.

I think Gena at choosing raw (now the full helping) discovered it!
If you were using peppermint extract, how much would you use?
I would start with 1/4 tsp and work your way up…
Why is this considered a yellow?
Because of the chocolate chips!
Would this work in a Vitamix blender?
It should! Just try a small amount of bananas first to be sure!
