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. This sounds wonderful! is it possible to substitute almond milk or flax milk for the coconut milk. I have a coconut allergy!
