Mint Chocolate Chip Nice-Cream Waffle Sandwiches

Mint choc chip with a healthy dose of…spinach?

August 29, 2017

Ingredients

For the mint chocolate chip nice cream
  • 3 oz. baby leaf spinach
  • 4 bananas, peeled and frozen
  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt
  • 2 fl. oz. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp peppermint extract
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, roughly chopped
For the waffles
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 8 1/2 fl oz. almond milk
  • Pinch of sea salt

Instructions

For the nice cream, place the spinach in a blender or food processor with a few tablespoons of water and blend until smooth. Set aside. Blend the remaining ingredients (except for the chocolate chips) with 1 tablespoon of the spinach purée, until thick and creamy. Stir through the chocolate chips and pop into a freezer-proof container and freeze for 1 hour, until firm.

To make your waffles, first heat your waffle iron. Crack the egg into a large mixing bowl then add the flour, milk, and sea salt and whisk everything together until you have a lovely, smooth batter. Pour a couple of tablespoons of the batter at a time into the middle of the waffle maker to make a small round-shaped waffle and cook until puffed and golden.

To serve, scoop the mint choc chip nice cream between two waffles and enjoy. Makes 5 small waffle sandwiches.

Note: Ideally, you’ll need a waffle iron for this recipe but you can also treat the waffle batter as pancakes if you don’t have the kit.

About this recipe

"Mint choc chip with a healthy dose of…spinach? Salad dodgers, don’t panic; it just adds some goodness and a vibrant green. You can’t taste it, I promise. I recommend serving these guys for afternoon tea, although a nice cream waffle sandwich for breakfast is pretty hard to beat." -- Margie Broadhead
