Vegi-Scream- a healthy ice cream alternative that the whole family loves!

I recently purchased the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment for my mixer and have been having a blast experimenting with different healthy ice cream alternatives. This one though, totally hit the spot as every family member polished off their bowl and my 4 year old even had seconds (and thirds!). It is a total winner!

You will need a juicer, blender, and ice cream maker, but truly from start to finish it takes less than 30 minutes!

Here is the recipe and instructions:
Makes 6-8 servings.

Juice: 1 apple, 6 stalks celery, 5 carrots, 1/2 stalk of ginger (half your thumb size), 2 beets, and 4 stalks of kale. Process through juicer according to manufacturer instructions.

Then blend: the juice made above, 1/2 cup orange juice (or 1 fresh juiced), 1 cup strawberries (frozen or fresh), 1 banana, 1 can full fat unsweetened coconut milk (I like Native Forest Organic), 1/4 c maple syrup, and 1 shot coconut rum (optional!). Blend until all ingredients are thoroughly pureed.

Pour this blend into the ice cream maker and run for 15 minutes on low or until it looks like the proper texture. Eat immediately or transfer into an airtight container and eat within 1 week. Yum!

Enjoy your Vegi-Scream!
