3 cups organic unsweetened coconut milk (see our easy recipe for Homemade Coconut Milk)
1/2 cup fresh organic mint leaves
1-2 drops organic peppermint essential oil for internal use
1/2 organic avocado
2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
1 teaspoon organic raw Hawaiian Spirulina powder
organic stevia to taste
1/2 cup unsweetened organic dark chocolate chips

Blend all the ingredients but the chocolate chips in a high speed blender (like Vitamix). Blend until smooth and adjust for sweetness with stevia. Place in an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer‘s instructions.* 

Stir in the chocolate chips by hand and spoon the ice cream into an airtight container and cover to prevent freezer burn. Place in the freezer until firm and enjoy. 

* if you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can place in freezer and mix by hand every 25 minutes until firm
