Hello & Happy Thursday!!

 

 

 

I like to think that all of my recipes are easy, but Thursdays, are for the easiest of the easy.. 

 

 

What’s great about this recipe is that it can be made in minutes, it sweet, rich, and yet nutrient dense!

 

 

My favorite part about this concoction is honestly the vegan ice cream. As with just a few ingredients and a few steps you can whip up something flavorful and minty fresh.. 

 

 


 

The biggest misconception with adding spinach and Spirulina to dessert recipes (which I love to do) is that its going to negatively effect the flavor..

Well I have news for you, it adds more dimension to the overall flavor, more character, more fun, more color, more everything.. 

 

 

But most importantly, more nutrients!

 

 

If you love an effortless vegan dessert recipe or long for that fresh mint chocolate chip combo.. 

 

You need to try this!!
