Wahoo! I’m really on a roll now!

The Cuisinart ice cream maker came into my home and my life just last week and I’ve already created something to remind me of a chocolate frosty, and now something just like mint chocolate chip ice cream!

I was “challenged” by a client (and friend) last week when she was really craving mint chocolate chip ice cream. How the heck could I re-create that? The more we talked, the more I felt confident this could happen.

I took nearly the same recipe from the chocolate frosty but omitted the cocoa powder, added a splash of mint extract and a decent amount of green food coloring. Which you don’t need at all, I just like the visual- I eat with my eyes people. And my mouth.

How to get chocolate chips when you don’t eat chocolate chips?! I decided to chop up a Pure Protein Chocolate Deluxe bar. Yes, you still know it’s a protein bar. You will not be deceived. But it absolutely does the trick of giving you chunks of chocolate flavor! You really only need about 1/3 of the protein bar. You could also use Quest’s Chocolate Brownie Bar.

  1. Dustin and I have been craving ice cream this week. I can’t wiat to bust out some of these ice cream recipes!!

  2. Have you thought to use Carob chips? or Lily’s Sweets Stevia Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips?

  3. @Kimberly I have not! I’m not familiar with either one. As long as it’s well logged in a food journal and the day then sure! I personally like the simplicity of the bar because I only make this recipe from time to time. :)
