This raw dessert recipe comes to us from Julie Morris.
INGREDIENTS (FOR ICE CREAM)
1/2 cup hemp milk, almond milk, or other non-dairy milk beverage
2 frozen bananas
1/2 medium-sized Hass avocado
2 Tbsp agave nectar
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 Tbsp minced fresh mint
several drops of liquid chlorophyll (optional – enhances green color)
INGREDIENTS (FOR COOKIE)
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup almond flour (ground almonds)
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/3 cup raw cacao nibs, plus a little extra for rolling
Blend: In a blender, combine non-dairy milk of choice, bananas, avocado, agave nectar, mint extract and fresh mint. Blend until smooth. Stir in liquid chlorophyll if desired. Transfer to a small bowl.
Freeze: Freeze the ice cream for 1-2 hours.
Mash: Combine all of the cookie ingredients in a food processor, and process until thoroughly chopped. Form “dough” into two even halves.
Assemble: Use a muffin tin, and line 6 of the muffin molds individually with saran wrap or tin foil. Sprinkle lightly with cacao nibs. Using one of the cookie dough halves, place a spoonful of dough evenly into the bottom of 6 the lined and “nibbed” muffin molds. Press firmly to form a “cookie.” Next, fill each of the molds evenly with the partially frozen ice cream. Line an empty muffin mold with saran wrap, and use to form 6 more cookies from the second half of the cookie dough, sprinkling with cacao nibs prior to pressing each time. Top each mint ice cream with a cookie to form a sandwich.
Freeze: Freeze sandwiches for 2 more hours. To serve, simply remove ice cream sandwiches from the saran wrap or aluminum foil and serve whole or sliced, if desired. If wrapped tightly, these sandwiches can keep in the freezer indefinitely for future enjoyment.
Makes 6 sandwiches.
