Want an ice cream you can eat without feeling guilt afterward? Then this dairy-free chocolate mint ice cream is just the thing you need to cool off this summer!
This ice cream contains a special ingredient, spirulina! Spirulina is a blue-green algae that contains a host of beneficial vitamins and minerals. It has a long list of benefits, such as boosting the immune system, acting as an anti-inflammatory, removes toxins from the blood, increases fat burning during exercise, removes heavy metals from the body and is a potent anti-cancer agent.
The recipe I am about to show you is the lower-fat, more fruity version. If you want a coconut-based (higher-fat) version of a similar recipe, click here.
