Green Ice Cream

You can make this green ice cream in your high-speed blender in less than 10 minutes without an ice cream maker.

SERVES 6

120 ml unsweetened cashew milk (or almond milk)
1 handful baby spinach
150 g raw unsalted cashews
50 g chopped pitted dates
1 tablespoon Ninja Powder plus more to taste (see notes)
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
6 frozen sliced banana (not too ripe)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Throw the milk, spinach, cashews, dates, Ninja powder, and vanilla into your blender, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until the ingredients are completely pulverized, and the mixture is smooth.

  2. Scrape down the sides of the blender container. Add the frozen bananas, secure the lid, remove the center lid cap, and insert the tamper.

  3. Holding the tamper in place with a firm grip, process on high for 20 to 30 seconds, using the tamper to guide the fruit through the blades until smooth, but still frozen.

  4. Scoop out, and serve immediately like a frozen yogurt, or chill in the freezer for about 4 hours to firm up for a harder sorbet consistency. Do not freeze for much longer or ice crystals will develop.
