Banana Shamrock Ice Cream!

This is such a fun, easy, and nutrient-rich recipe! There are two ways to make this recipe - in a food processor or in a blender. I find that using a food processor makes the ice cream more solid for longer, as opposed to a runny consistency. It is best to use a high-powered blender like a Vita-Mix or Blendtec, but, with patience and a little finesse, you can use a lower-powered blender as well.

Spinach is a mild green leafy vegetable and you don't really even notice the taste in this recipe! Enjoy!!

Depending on the serving size, it could serve 1-4 people.


3 Frozen Spotted Bananas

1 handful Spinach

1 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)

1 tsp Cinnamon (optional)

Directions - Food Processor:

Add all ingredients to the food processor base with the "s" blade in place. Pulse processor. At first, the texture will be crumbly and then it should get smooth. Add a small bit of water if needed to smooth out.

Directions - Blender:

Same ingredients as above, except add about 1/4 cup of filtered water. If you are using a Vita-Mix, be sure to use the tamper vigorously so that it comes out smooth.

If you are using a standard blender, you will need to do the following steps: First, cut the frozen banana in small chunks. Blend the spinach in water. Then, add a few pieces of banana at a time, pulsing it in until it is all smooth.

Scoop into serving bowls and top with sunflower sprouts for a "shamrock" feel!
