Vegan Mint Chip Ice Cream


Dairy-free Mint Chip Ice Cream is made with a coconut milk base studded with dark chocolate chips. The only other ingredients you need to make this paleo dessert recipe are hemp seeds, honey, peppermint, vanilla, and water. That’s right, this ice cream is made with 7 ingredients total.

Last week I made a huge dinner of my Spicy Grilled Chicken, Roasted Broccoli and Kaleslaw for my older son and a couple of his buddies. My goal was to fill ’em with good grub before another big baseball tournament.

After they scarfed down their meal, the boys asked if I had any of that “special ice cream.” They then proceeded to feast on several of my dairy-free ice cream recipes including Banana and Coffee. A gang of three 13 year olds can be tough critics so I was very happy!

  1. Made this and loved it – great taste and texture. I added some fresh mint from our garden too. All around a bit hit and very easy.

  2. This looks like a delicious recipe, though it is still relatively high in carbs because of the honey or agave. Have you ever considered using the natural (and healthy) sweetener Stevia instead of honey/agave? Or at least use some Stevia, so as to be able to decrease the amount of pure sugar (honey or agave is pure fructose, which is not all that healthy…)? Keep up the good work!

    • Hi there! If you click on the green text in the instructions portion of the recipe that says “ice cream maker” you will be taken to the one I use :-)

  3. I love reading your blog, this looks fantastic! what an amazing ice cream sounds like beautiful and fabulous. Thanks for sharing this info! I keep on reading…

  4. This ice cream is AMAZING!!!!! It passed the test with flying colors with my 10 year old boy and 8 year old girl!! The only change we made was using pure maple syrup instead of the honey as a sweetner.
    I’m not kidding try this recipe will not be disappointed!!!

  5. This was perfection for a little sweetness at the end of a scorching summer day. From start to finish (frozen) it took less than an hour. I used a Cuisineart ice cream maker and it turned out creamy with a nice mouth feel. The little choco bits just made the savor last longer. A wonderful,no-cook recipe.
