Offering a plant-based alternative to ice cream flavors such as mint chocolate chip is this superfood smoothie recipe by Kale and Caramel. The blended drink is filled with healthy and dairy-free ingredients that replicate the taste, appearance and texture of ice cream without the use of milk. The drink is a great substitute for consumers seeking a healthier alternative to ice cream made with plants rather than the conventional dairy products.
Instead of using a milk base, the mint chocolate smoothie opts for water mixed with hemp seeds and frozen banana and ice to achieve the same silken blended flavor. The drink is flavored with spirulina powder to naturally add the green coloring while vanilla, shredded coconut, fresh mint and cacao nibs add a balancing sweetness.
