A wonderful healthy version of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream http://cleananddelicious.com/2012/08/05/video-reader-recipe-mint-chocolate-chip-ice-cream/
I made mine with kale, almond milk, and half the peppermint extract.
Recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream from Dani Spies:

Pop everything except chocolate chips into a high-speed blender and blend for about 20 seconds or until you’ve got a nice thick creamy consistency.
Add chocolate chips and blend for another few seconds. Dish it up and enjoy!

Sometimes kale starts going bad by the end of the week but if you make Kale Pops, you'll always have good kale for smoothies or soups. I used kale instead of spinach. http://cleananddelicious.com/2012/07/04/video-frozen-spinach-pops-for-smoothies-protein-shakes/Recipe for Spinach Pops from Dani Spies:
