GF : DF : SF : VEGAN

Makes 6 ice blocks

Ice-cream mix:

1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours

1/2 cup coconut flesh

400ml coconut cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

6 medjool dates, pitted

Golden crunch mix:

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup raw cacao

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 cup organic rice puffs

1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped

To make the ice-cream:

Drain water from cashews. Place in high powered blender or food processor with coconut flesh, coconut cream, vanilla, turmeric and pitted dates and blitz until smooth. Pour into 6 ice cream moulds and place in freezer to set 6 hours.

To make the golden crunch:

Crush the rice puffs by placing on a chopping board and pressing down on the puffs with back of a knife until they break into smaller pieces.

To make the chocolate: 

Whisk together coconut oil, raw cacao and maple in a small bowl or saucepan.

Remove ice creams from moulds and use a spoon to pour chocolate evenly on each side. You can create two layers of chocolate per ice cream with this amount of melted chocolate. On the second layer be ready to sprinkle the rice puffs and finely chopped pecans all over the chocolate before it sets and freezes. Once all ice creams are coated, eat immediately or pop back in the freezer until ready to serve. If eater later, remove ice creams from freezer 8-10 minutes prior to serving so the ice cream mix softens slightly.

Keep in freezer up to 4 weeks.
