Mint-Carob Nice Cream.

When I was younger (and ate ice cream!), my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE FLAVOR was mint chocolate chip. There was NOTHING I loved more than a yummy mint chocolate chip ice cream on a hot summer day. Cool, rich, creamy, perfection. Ahhhhhhh. So refreshing. My fellow mint chocolate chip lovers, REJOICE! This "Mint-Carob Nice Cream" tastes EXACTLY LIKE THE REAL THING! Actually, no. IT'S BETTER! And it's so incredibly healthy! You have to make this...even if mint chocolate chip ice cream isn't your favorite, THIS FLAVOR WILL BE! It's definitely mine! 

             Mint-Carob Nice Cream. 

You reaaaaaaalllly want to make this. Trust me!

Mint-Carob Nice Cream; Vegan, Gluten-free. Serves one (makes one EXTRA LARGE serving!). 

1. 2 frozen bananas
2. 1 T carob powder
3. One peppermint tea bag, steeped in 1 cup boiling water and chilled in the fridge AT LEAST 48 hours for flavors to fully develop. 

1. In your vitamix or other high speed blender, combine frozen nanas, carob, and 1/2 cup of your chilled peppermint tea. Secure lid and blend low to high. Of things are not moving, add another 1/4 cup of tea. Blend until smooth. 
2. Turn off blender and set aside a shallow baking dish. Pour your nice cream into dish, making sure to spread it evenly about the dish. The consistency should be thick but easily spreadable...think very thick smoothie. 
3. Cover and place in freezer overnight. When ready to eat, remove from freezer, let thaw at least 10-15 minutes and enjoy! So so so good! (I may or may not be eating this RIGHT NOW...)
