Cool Chocolate Ice Kream

Here is a great recipe that will hopefully prove invaluable during the upcoming summer months.  A cool, refreshing and oh! so satisfying dessert that is vegan friendly and nut free. 

  • 3 bananas
  • 3 tablespoons of pure cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 6 medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 3 cups of ice cubes

Place the bananas, cocoa powder, tahini, dates, syrup in a high speed blender or food processor and blend.  Slowly add the ice cubes as longs as mixture is flowing and blending well.  You need not use all the ice, just enough to make the mixture thick and kreamy.  Enjoy as is or topped with fresh sliced up bananas and strawberries for a delicious dessert.

Makes approx. 4 cups.

Note: If not consumed immediately, the ice kream can be stored in the freezer.  Just make sure to remove from the freezer 15-20minutes before serving in order for it to return to it`s kreamy texture.
