If you’re a woman, you’ve probably made that really annoying high pitched ‘awww!’ or ‘eeee!’ and if you’re a man…I’m sorry that you had to listen to it.
Those were the sounds coming out of my mouth as I was taking these photos.
I mean, is that not the cutest little monster dessert you’ve ever seen!?
It couldn’t be easier to make or healthier, too! No way does it taste anything remotely like spinach, but like a decadent banana treat. Plus, no one will suspect spinach. It’s Halloween, I bet they’ll think you just put food coloring in it. We win!
See, I told you I had something awesome to fill these chocolate dipped ice cream cones. And now, I’ve gone all elementary school on you, just for fun. I think Halloween brings out the kid in me. Ready and go:
Low fat and
Outrageously monstrous. And…
When it doubt, eat a spinach monster. Now,
Eat another one.
Eat until your stomach’s content.
Now, have a happy Halloween!
Now go make this for yourself and everyone you love. They’ll love it!
Spinach Ice Cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 2 frozen bananas, sliced
- Blend (I use a Blendtec) all of the ingredients together until fully combined. Serve immediately or freeze for a couple of hours until easier to work with.
- Scoop into cups or chocolate dipped ice cream cones.
Note: If you leave it in the freezer too long, just set it out on the counter for 10-15 minutes to thaw a little bit before serving.
lol the eyes totally make this. Such a unique idea!
Love the spinach ice cream idea for Halloween! Or any other day. Have you tried making this with frozen spinach?
OMG, this is by far the cutest Halloween dessert I’ve seen yet!! I love it! Also, so intrigued by the spinach ice cream….sounds right up my alley.
That is AWESOME Caroline!
cutest. thing. i’ve. ever. seen.
These are adorable. And I love how healthy and simple! Brilliant!
This is just too stinking cute!
Oh goodness!! How adorable and creative 🙂 I Love it!!
Ahhh these guys are adorable! Umm, I mean, totally scary 😉 perfect for halloween 🙂
I’m all about low fat, low sugar desserts. I will definitely be trying this out. *Sharing*
Yay! Thank you for sharing and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 🙂
So cute!! Made it at the insistence of my 3y/o and it tastes great! Mine came out really runny (like a milkshake) even though I used 3 bananas. It’s in the freezer now, so hopefully it will firm up nicely.
Thanks Monica! I hope putting it in the freezer helped. If it says in there too long, be sure to let it sit out at room temperature to be manageable. 😀 Enjoy!
These are so cute! I love that they are spinach, but I am sure every kid would go crazy for them!
Totally! Slap some goggly eyes on anything healthy and they’re all over it! 😉
Great idea! I tried it this morning with my toddler and it came out really runny like a milkshake…any idea why yours did not and ours did? I followed your recipe exactly. thanks!
All I can figure is there wasn’t enough frozen banana. I used medium-large bananas. Also, if it seems too liquidy after blending, add a few more banana slices and blend some more to get that thick frozen consistency! 😀
Ok thanks! The bananas I actually used were quite large. Next time I think I’ll start off with less milk. Regardless, I stuck the smoothie in the freezer and let it thicken up. It was still delicious and my 14 month old and toddler ate it up! Thanks for the healthy recipe!
Spooky and delicious! You have the cutest ideas! Can’t wait to try this with my 3 year old nephew!
Aww! So cute! But… you put spinach in ice cream. Noooo! 😉
This would be so much better without dairy milk, which is not the least bit healthy. I am going to try it with vanilla almond milk. It’s full of vitamin E, more calcium than animal milk, no cholesterol…and on and on. Will report back with findings..
Thank you for pointing that out Bren! I actually prefer using unsweetened almond milk with this recipe. The reason I listed just ‘milk’ in the recipe ingredients is so that you have the option to choose any type of milk. Yay! 😀 Enjoy!
I love this Caroline! I found it on Pinterest and came here – what a great idea for spinach! Like you I use almond milk for my ice creams, but I never thought to use spinach too! (Plus you have my sense of humor, I hear you with the screaming-when-taking-photos, I can relate!)
Thank you Barbara! Almond milk just makes the ice cream taste so delicious, right?! 😀 And spinach is my go-to to get added nutrition in wherever I can…especially with a picky toddler. Weee!
What did you use for the eyes?

Thank you! I will try experimenting with something else for the eyes for an even healthier option. 🙂
