Mint Chip Soft Serve and Raw Peanut Butter Desserts
My craving for something peppermint last week resulted in this easy raw mint chip soft serve. It's creamy, frosty, sweet, and refreshing. The avocado provides body, a pretty green colour, and makes the dessert filling. In fact I enjoyed it for lunch one day and it satisfied me for hours.
The peppermint essential oil adds a great flavour boost. Only use 1 - 2 drops as it's extremely potent, and different brands are more or less strong.
Mint Chip Soft Serve
1/3 cup mashed avocado
2 tablespoons cashew butter
1/4 packed fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 drops peppermint essential oil
2-3 drops stevia
1 1/2 cups ice cubes
1 1/2 tablespoons cacao nibs or 3 tablespoons chopped raw chocolate
Blend the avocado, cashew butter, mint leaves, maple syrup, and vanilla in a high speed blender until smooth. Add the peppermint, stevia, and ice. Blend until the ice is completely broken down but do not over blend or it will soften too much. Fold in the cacao nibs or chocolate chunks. Eat immediately.
