Easy and delicious, this low carb no churn Chocolate Mint Chip Ice Cream is a fun way to celebrate. A perfect keto treat for St. Paddy’s Day!
I declare March to officially be the dreariest month of the year. You know spring is on the way but it’s still wet and chilly and possibly even snowy so the days really seems to drag. The clothing stores are filled with bright fun spring clothes that you eye hungrily but you know you can’t possibly wear them for another few months. You might see some buds on trees and the occasional crocus poking through the soil, but the grey skies and the drizzle belie the fact that the Northern Hemisphere is inching ever closer to the sun. You might even get one warm “teaser” day when the sun shines and the birds sing and the kids run around outside. But that only serves to make you all the more sad when the rain and chill return and you feel like the world will never warm up again. Or…you live in Florida or Southern California and you have no idea what I am talking about. But a great many of you know EXACTLY what I am talking about.
That’s why it’s very important to have something to celebrate in March, just to brighten things up a bit. It hardly matters what you choose as your fete du jour, but you need something. Me, I happen to have a birthday in March but as I get older, that gets less and less exciting. So I am just going to go ahead and focus all my energies on St. Paddy’s Day. I don’t really care about it as a major celebration day, but I need something to keep me going!
So here’s the time of year where we eat green foods and drink green drinks, in honour of some guy who rid some island of snakes some time back before you or I were born. Why not? Seems like a good reason to celebrate, wouldn’t you say? And while it’s not exactly ice cream season yet, I say go ahead and eat your low carb Mint Chip Ice Cream and let loose a little. It’s March, it’s dreary, you got hold onto something fun!

Also, as a fun aside and a shout-out to some awesome low carb innovators, I want to point out that I paired my Keto Mint Chip with brownies from a mix by Good Dee’s. While I love making my own brownies from scratch, it can be nice to have a mix ready to go in the pantry sometimes. There are cookie mixes too!
