5 Minute Soft Serve Ice Cream

By Anita | June 26, 2019 | No Comments

So sometimes we do this thing around our house. Now, it’s a bit out of the ordinary, but it’s something that all of us around here love to do on occasion. It involves mixing it up just a bit, you know, going for the fun and unpredictable.

Take tonight for example. We came in from the beach and I was looking for something delicious to serve up for dinner. And then this brilliant thought hit me!

Why not have DESSERT for dinner?

So out came the Vitamix and a healthy “dessert dinner” was ready and being gleefully consumed within about 5 minutes. Score!

Now, I know you may feel like judging…I completely understand. But get a load of these ingredients!

Then go buy them, try the recipe, and I think you will agree that Dessert Dinner was a great idea! 😉


5 Minute Soft Serve Ice Cream


Healthy, delicious, and on the table in 5 minutes or less, this soft serve ice cream is a true treat. Our children always request seconds, and so do we!



  • 5 raw almonds
  • 6 oz water
  • 5 pitted medjool dates
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan pink salt
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 avocado pitted and peeled
  • 1 1/2 trays ice cubes (approximately 3 1/2 cups)


Place all ingredients except the ice into your high speed blender.
Blend until very smooth.
Add ice and blend again just until ice cream reaches soft serve consistency.


QUICK TIP: If you desire a bit thicker consistency, simply add a few additional ice cubes.

Serve immediately or freeze if a much firmer consistency is desired.

So there you have it! Our out of the ordinary, spur of the moment, healthy ice cream dinner. 😉
