With the days getting warmer, the only thing on my mind is ice-cream, and these frozen chocolate bites hit the spot. They might not look like anything fancy, but they are dang delicious and great for parties, or just to have as a treat.

INGREDIENTS

 

‘Biscuit’ layer

1 cup oats

1 cup almonds

10 dates-softened in boiling water

4 tbsp almond butter

3 tbsp almond milk

 

Chocolate ice-cream

1 cup cashews-softened in boiling water

1 cup almond milk

1 cup coconut milk

2 tbsp cocao

1 medium baked sweet potato with skin removed

2 tsp vanilla essence

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 tbsp almond butter

 

METHOD

 

  • ‘Biscuit’ layer
  1. Line a 20cm square cake pan with baking paper.
  2.  Place almonds and oats in a blender, and pulse until a fine meal is formed.
  3. Drain dates, and add to a food processor with remaining ingredients.
  4. Pulse until a dough-like consistency is formed.
  5. Divide mixture in half. Wrap one half in cling wrap, and put to the side. Use the other half to cover the bottom of the tray evenly. Place in freezer.

 

 

  • Chocolate ice-cream
  1. Place drained cashews and remaining ingredients in a high speed blender, and pulse until smooth.
  2. Pour mixture over ‘biscuit’ base and return to the freezer for 5 hours.
  3. Using the dough you set aside, roll out a layer the same size as the tray and place on top of the chocolate layer.
  4. Score the slice into cubes, and return to the freezer for another 4 hours.
  5. Serve and enjoy.

 

TIPS

* Store slice in between layers of baking paper in an airtight container in your freezer.

* For a creamy slice, defrost slices for a couple of minutes before eating.

* Remember to score/ cut your slice, otherwise it will be too hard to slice once it is frozen.
