This delightfully healthy Easy Creamy Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-cream recipe is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and vegan – and it can be made with just SIX ingredients!
What is your favorite ice cream flavor? If you can only choose ONE flavor?
Without even thinking, I’ll tell you mine is—and has always been—mint chocolate chip.
While I do also love plain chocolate, and I did go through this weird phase in elementary school where I’d order double chocolate ice cream with gummy bears (which is so unlike me), mint chocolate chip has withstood the test of time; it’s still the first flavor to always catch my eye.
This healthy mint chocolate “nice” cream is sweet, creamy, nourishing, and incredibly simple – You can make it without an ice cream maker!
If that sounds like something you can whip up, let’s do it, shall we!!

Recipe serves 4
2 ripe avocados
1/2 cup/118g unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk (or oat milk for nut-free option)
1/4 cup/85g maple syrup, or other liquid sweetener of your choice
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract, or 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup/ 45g of dairy-free mini chocolate chips
1. Add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips into a high powered blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
2. Stir in chocolate chips and pour into a freezer-safe container. I used a loaf pan lined with parchment.
3.Place container in the freezer to set. It should take about 4-5 hours(best overnight). Once frozen, pull ice cream from the freezer, let sit out on the counter for 5-10 minutes to soften. Use an ice cream scoop to serve and enjoy!
Feel free to use your sweetener of choice here. Play around with using stevia instead of maple syrup/ if you want to reduce the sugar content.
