My friend Rebecca reminded me that she needed the recipe for these delicious ice cream alternatives so here they are for all the world to enjoy!
2 cans native forest coconut milk (The only brand that I know of that doesn't use BPA in their cans) 5-7 pitted dates that have been soaked in hot water for 5 minutes to soften them large spoonful of nut butter (we make a combination of cashew, almond & pecan) 1 Tbsp of vanilla dash of maple syrup (optional) 3 Tbsp cacao (also optional, if you wanted to make a chocolaty batch-usually I make half chocolate, half regular)
Put all ingredients into the blender and throughly mix. Place mixture into popsicle maker of your choice, freeze overnight and enjoy!
We also REALLY enjoy this mixture when it has been in the refrigerator overnight. It makes a very think whipped cream consistency that is really good as a dip for rice crispy treats, fruit, or anything else you can think of.
I am a mom of a wonderful little four year old, an sweet baby, and wife to a thirty one year old. I am inspired by flavors and colors. I hope to change lives by infusing my cooking with love and special touches. We are also very into eating mostly vegan foods and playing with our doggie! I consider myself vegan-ish. I avoid animal products for a few reasons. I care about all beings, and wish for harmony for everyone and everything. I believe that it is more important to focus on what you eat instead of what you shouldn't eat. When it comes down to it, I feel better about myself and my family is thriving as vegan-ish.
