This hot weather has gotten me in the mood for ice cream! I was so excited to find this healthier alternative to a klondike bar from www.detoxinista.com. I love finding healthier alternatives so I can indulge without the guilt! Enjoy!
Vanilla Ice Cream Bars:
1 cup raw cashew pieces, soaked in water for 2 hours
1 cup water
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
5 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
Line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside, then drain and rinse the cashews, discarding the soak water. Combine the soaked cashews, water, coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a high-speed blender, and blend until completely smooth. Adjust the flavor to taste, if necessary, then pour the ice cream batter into the lined loaf pan. Place the pan in the freezer until the ice cream is frozen solid, about 4 to 6 hours.
