Wondering what to do with all the mint you’re growing? Try this ah-mazing recipe!
Avocados make a great base for this creamy frozen dessert, which doesn’t require dairy or eggs. If you like the combination of mint and chocolate, add 1/4 cup raw cacao nibs to the mix before freezing.
Makes four servings
Preparation time: 10 minutes (plus 12 hours of freezing time)
2 ripe avocados
1 14-oz. can coconut milk
½ cup honey
1 cup fresh mint leaves, packed (stems removed)
Pinch of sea salt
Blend all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Pour the mixture into a glass container and place in the freezer. Stir every two hours until it is uniformly frozen.
