Nothing says summer like a scoop of ice cream! I love ice cream and have fond memories of my niece and I sitting at our grandmothers round kitchen table, stirring inside green plastic bowls of the frozen treat, making ice cream soup! It was our favorite. Our grandmother kept the gallon containers of ice cream in her freezer in the back room. We would eat it all the time.
So my love for ice cream goes way back. Through the years taste buds change and I ventured out from plain chocolate and vanilla with chocolate syrup to other flavors, and quickly found that mint chocolate chip is pretty darn tasty! Kelsie loves all flavors of ice cream she’s ever tried, mint chocolate chip being one of her favorites. With food allergies, we can’t buy very many varieties from the store, and mint chocolate chip was one of those that we thought we’d never see again. Until….one day on Pinterest, I’m completely obsessed! Are you following me? One of my favorite food allergy bloggers posted a recipe for a no churn mint chocolate chip ice cream, thank you so much Petite Allergy Treats! I had to modify hers since Kelsie is allergic to coconut, but the idea came straight from her. I never would have tempted it if it wasn’t for Laura. And I tried the whole trying to get the color from spinach like she did, however my Ninja isn’t nearly as great, and I couldn’t get anything. Oh well, luckily I had all natural dye from India Tree.
