This Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Ice Cream is made healthy with a frozen banana base, fresh mint leaves, protein and spinach for color!
I have enjoyed making different flavors and experimenting to see how it turns out. My little girl loves banana ice cream so much. She calls bananas "bwaps" right now and gets super excited anytime she sees a banana. She is adorable!
