Nice cream is all the rage in our house! My kids love it and I love that it’s just fruit. But did you know you can also throw in some veggies?! Frozen zucchini adds a creamy texture with no real taste. YES! We wanted to really make it green and add in spinach for color and mint to make it into mint chocolate chip flavor.
