If you are looking for rich creamy ice cream that’s chocolaty this is it. I really enjoyed rich ice cream before going raw and this does not disappoint. Add more chocolate if you are a chocoholic as this recipe more subtle. Taste before you freeze. Soft and creamy not icy at all.

Recipe Directions

  1. Blend the cashews with the water to create cashew cream, you may need to add more water, add small amounts at a time if you do.
  2. Shave off pieces of Cacao butter into bowl. place the bowl on top of pan of really hot water. Be patient, it will melt. Increase water temperature to really get it going.
  3. Add Coconut oil to the cacao butter bowl to melt as well.
  4. Add in all remaining ingredients and blend well. I really like to blend mine for a while to get it super smooth.
  5. Pour into a freezable container with a lid and freeze. I left mine in over night.
  6. Scoop into bowl, top it with fresh fruit or nuts, i enjoyed mine as is. Smile!

You could double the coconut oil, but you won't get the richness and depth in the chocolate. The cocoa butter adds fat (ie creaminess) but also chocolate flavor, I personally think it's a must have in all raw chocolate desserts. If you add raw carob reduce the dates or other sugars, or add slowly since carob has a sweetness to it. AndI wouldn't recommend cocoa powder, but that's personal preference.

Can this be made without the cocoa butter? If so, would you double the amount of coconut oil instead? Also, as far as raw chocolate powder, would either raw carob or cocoa powder suffice?

Thanks for posting - I really want to try this!
