Created by Vitamix Specialist Daniel Imperiale (Lynn’s son)
(Prep time 5 min. Blend 40-45 seconds)
Agave (healthy squirt to cover the flat of the blades)
1 capful peppermint extract (sm. cap from the bottle)
3 cups ice
2 oz. Ghirardelli’s chocolate chips
Add all ingredients in the order they are listed (except the chips). Secure lid with plug removed and turn machine on variable speed one. Increase to 10 and turn on high. Using your tamper, blend ice into ingredients until four mounds start to form. When frozen, blend chips into ice cream quickly leaving some whole on top. Do not blend chips for more than a few seconds so they remain intact. Stop machine and swirl mixture with a spatula before serving. Garnish with a few whole chips on top if desired and serve immediately. You will wow your family and friends!
