And now, for the chocolate.

Sammie writes, “Do we have to say ‘death by chocolate’? Chocolate is my strength, not my weakness. Here’s how to create a quick, dairy-free and raw chocolate ice cream to satisfy your lust for all things cold and cacao-based on a hot day.”

Moringa Chocolate Raw Ice Cream

Prep time: 5 mins

Total time: 30 - 45 mins

Servings:  4 - 5

Ingredients

1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked for 2 hours in water)

4 ripe bananas

2 1/2 Tbsp raw cacao powder

1 Tbsp SuperLeafTM Moringa powder

1 Tbsp maple syrup

Pinch sea salt

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into an ice cream machine (see note for an alternative method).
  • Churn until solid (approximately 10-15 minutes).
  • Place frozen mixture into a glass container and freeze for 30 minutes to further solidify.

Note: If you don’t have an ice cream maker, substitute four pre-sliced and pre-frozen bananas for the fresh bananas. Process or blend and freeze the ice-cream as per the instructions.

Bonus tip:

“Jazz up this chocolate ice cream with a coconut almond drizzle by mixing 1 Tbsp coconut oil and 2 Tbsp almond butter. Sprinkle with your favourite fruits or toppings or simply enjoy this ice cream straight up!
