Triple Chocolate ~ a Raw and Vegan Ice Cream Recipe


serves 4 ~ $1.20 per serving
 
 
 

brownie bits

  • 1/2 cup walnuts ($.50)
  • 1/2 cup raisins ($.50)
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder ($.20)
  • pinch salt

chocolate chunks

  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted ($.40)
  • 4 tablespoons date palm sugar or agave ($.40)
  • 4 tablespoon cocoa or cacao powder ($.40)

ice cream

  • 6 bananas, sliced and frozen ($1.20)
  • 1 cup almond milk ($.40)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla ($.20)
  • 6 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder ($.60)
  • pinch salt

This isn't quite as complicated as it seems, and boy does it hit the chocolate spot. 

Make the ice cream first. In a blender, puree all the ice cream ingredients until smooth and creamy. This will be like soft serve ice cream and is wonderful as is, but for this recipe pour into a container and freeze, stirring every 20 minutes or so until stiff. This can also be processed in an ice cream maker.

Make the brownie bits in the food processor, using the "S" blade. Process all the brownie bit ingredients until the mix starts sticking and clumping and can be pressed into a ball. Spread out on wax paper, about 1/4 inch thick, and refrigerate for at least a half hour to harden.

For the chocolate chunks, stir together all the chocolate chunk ingredients until smooth and creamy and well incorporated. Spread out on wax paper and refrigerate until hard.

To assemble, just break the brownie into bits and the chocolate into chunks and stir into the chocolate ice cream.

Store any leftovers in a covered container in the freezer and allow to soften slightly before serving.
