Chocolate Mint N'ice Cream

Bob worked until around 8:00 PM tonight holding night hearings, so we did not have a Valentine's Day Dinner tonight. However, this is a little something that I whipped up for Bob and I to have this evening after he got home from work.

Chocolate Mint N'ice Cream
(makes about 2 cups)

2 ripe bananas
2 medool dates, pitted
1 Tbsp. raw almond butter
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
2 drops creme de menthe flavoring (or fresh mint)
1 tsp. vanilla extract (or vanilla bean)
water - enough to blend into a thick smoothie consistency

Blend all of the ingredients until smooth and freeze. If you freeze it until it is completely solid, you will need to let it thaw for about a half an hour before stirring it by hand and scooping it into your dishes.

Thanks for the recipe. I have a big bag of cacao calling my name and ice cream is very a very appealing prospect!

Hello, i got a good laugh out of the link you sent me! Thanks! I love your blogs by the way! This recipe is exactly what i've been looking for! I'm going to make it today, just have to get the mint!

I feel it only safe to warn you all that after Bob and I had this last night, we decided that it just needs a little something more. Maybe some raw cacao chocolate syrup is in order!!! If you hit upon anything, let me know!!! [grin]

Welcome Michelle! Glad you like my humble little blogs. Feel free to drop by either or both at any time!!!

That looks really good! Sigh. OF course, I am a real fan of chocolate, (as you can see in my last blog post, lol)

Uh... yeah, Charissa. I did notice a "bit" of chocolate floating around your blog when I visited last night!!! [grin]
