Recipe Directions

Start with the coconut butter. I had just bought a fresh jar, so I ran it under warm water for several minutes. The whole jar doesn’t have to melt…just enough to get about 1 cup. Pour melted coconut butter into small-medium sized bowl. In seperate bowl, mash two ripe bananas. Put bananas in mixing bowl with coconut butter. Then proceed to add cacao powder. I then added the agave nectar, to taste, really…but I estimate it to be around 1/2 cup. Then I poured in the coconut milk, to thin out the “batter”. I finished by adding the peppermint oil to taste. Since I just bought an ice cream maker, I put the mix in the ice cream maker, and wait til it’s done. However, if you do not own an ice cream maker, have no fear! Just put the mix in a container…put it in the freezer. Stir mix every 30 minutes or so until desired consistency :) Enjoy!

Mine is still freezing, but the “batter” alone was just so so amazing, tasted just like Thin Mint girl scout cookies!!

**note, the picture is not my own. I imagine the finished product to be that texture/color… I’ll definitely have pictures when it’s done!!

Tastes just like Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies..I swear.

This ice cream incorporates the refreshing mouth-cooling peppermint, and rich rich cacao-chocolate…an awesome treat for anytime and for always!!

squirrely girl, i got the oil at my local co-op...i can't beleive that they don't have that on the websites! i'm sure you could use fresh mint leaves even, but it won't have the same effect.

This sounds fabulous. Where do you get the peppermint oil? Even on most of the raw food websites all I can find is the extract.

Bah! Audrey, come on over! Actually yes my friends and I have the ice cream socials...but each week would be the same. Each dish was like a thick smoothie, always banana based in the most overwhelming way. I was SO determined to find a great ice cream maker and impress all of my friends with my raw ice cream! I took my batch with me to both jobs today and people fell in love with me. Ha! I'll make another batch and give you a buzz to come on OVER!!!

You could use young coconut I'm sure. I wanted to imitate a raw vegan version of dairy based ice cream, which involves a lot of creams and fats...Trust me, you can only eat a little bit at a time...but i understand!

Raw Mama: I mean the coconut water inside, my apologies :)

Layladebloody: I'm sure it would be divine with just the coconut butter and peppermint oil! Maybe like a "white chocolate" version! That sounds exciting...

Audrey: Thank you!!! I'm VERY excited about this, you have no idea. It's been a very inspiring recipe...i.e. makes me want to do a raw vegan recipe book!! enjoy!

Vegasgreen: the integrity of this dessert will not be comprimised if you use dates. As for my personal consumption of raw agave...i'll look into that, thank you!

miaculpa: yep, do it. just the "batter" or even a shake will be freaking drop dead amazing...

I want to do the shake/smoothie version of this. I have no patience when it comes to waiting.

This sounds really good. I think I might try to use dates in place of the agave as a sweetener. I have recently heard that agave is not actually raw, that to get it's sweetness is has to be heated above acceptable temperatures to be considered raw.If anyone has heard different feel free to let me know.

Would this be good without the cocoa? I ask because I can't eat it.

Oh boy, this sounds great! When you say coconut milk, do you mean the coconut water, the liquid inside of the coconut, or do you mean juice the meat to get coconut milk?
