Description

Treat yourself with this creamy chocolate ice-cream and its generous chunks of peanut butter brownie. It’s naturally sweetened with banana and dates for a no-guilt pleasure.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup cashew, soaked for at least 8 hours
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 can of coconut cream 
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 3 Medjool dates
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp arrow-root (optional)
  • a pinch of salt
  • About 4 Peanut Butter brownie bites

Instructions

1. Rinse and drain the soaked cashews. Combine the cashews, frozen bananas, coconut cream, almond milk, pitted dates, vanilla and salt in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Mix until perfectly smooth.

2. Add the cacao powder and arrow-root (optional, see notes) and mix again to incorporate.

3. With an ice-cream maker: pour the mixture in your ice-cream maker and proceed following the specific instructions, until the ice-cream is thick but still shapable. Then fold in the brownie cut in bite-size pieces. Pour the mixture in a container and place in freezer for about 1 hour to firm before serving.

Without ice-cream maker: spread the mixture in a large container and place in freezer. Every 30 minutes, remove the ice-cream from the freezer and stir using a fork to break the crystals that are forming, and return to freezer. When the mixture starts to thicken, fold in the brownie cut in bite-size pieces. Return to freezer and continue to stir every 30 minutes until ready (it can take about 3-4 hours).


Notes

  1. I’ve used this Peanut Butter Brownie recipe
  2. If the dates are very dry, soak them in hot water for about 30 minutes to soften before using.
  3. For a very creamy texture, store the coconut cream can in fridge overnight and scoop only he thick part that has formed on top for the ice-cream.
  4. The arrow-root will help to get a thick and creamy texture, but is totally optional.
