Mint Brownie Blizzard – Vegan & Gluten Free

Last night I was driving home from work and it hit me. What exactly hit me?! Well I’ll tell you. I had an idea for a new blizzard recipe. It just came to me in an instant as I was driving at an exceptionally slow speed behind another car. I channeled that frustration into something great. Yesss! It’s true and it’s great.

What we have here is the queen of all mint blizzards. She’s really something special. Gooey chocolatey brownie bits dispersed into a fresh and cool banana ice cream. I tossed some spinach in for some extra color (and nutrition) so let’s all be excited about that too! There’s probably enough here for 2 or even 3 people but I ate it all after I snapped these pictures and I bet that you’ll want to do the same. Just let it happen, no regrets!

Mint Brownie Blizzard

serves 1-2

Brownie:

1 cup dates
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup mint leaves
2 tablespoons cacao powder

In your blender or food processor blend together all ingredients. Remove from blender and set aside.

Ice Cream:
4 frozen bananas
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup mint leaves
A handful of spinach

Blend together all ingredients. Add half of the brownie mixture to the ice cream and blend together to disperse pieces of brownie into the ice cream. Remove from blender. Top with pieces of brownie and cacao nibs if desired. Serve, enjoy!
