"Healthy" Chocolate Blender Ice Cream
Doug, the Blender Chef
1/2 cup milk (or half & half, heavy cream for richer taste)
3 1/2 Tbs. cocoa powder
7 Tbs. hot cocoa mix (you can find a healthier one if you try- I used a Trader Joes mix)
4-6 baby carrots
small slice cabbage
small handful spinach (I didn't have cabbage so I doubled this)
1/2 of an avocado
sweetener to taste (5 Hadley dates, agave nectar, honey, etc.)
2 cups ice
Blend these ingredients on low beginning on 1 then increasing to 10, run for 10 seconds then stop. Use tamper stick to push ice down. Results are best when using a Vitamix.
