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.
1 cup oats
1 cup almonds
10 dates-softened in boiling water
4 tbsp almond butter
3 tbsp almond milk
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
- ‘Biscuit’ layer
- Line a 20cm square cake pan with baking paper.
- Place almonds and oats in a blender, and pulse until a fine meal is formed.
- Drain dates, and add to a food processor with remaining ingredients.
- Pulse until a dough-like consistency is formed.
- 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
- Place drained cashews and remaining ingredients in a high speed blender, and pulse until smooth.
- Pour mixture over ‘biscuit’ base and return to the freezer for 5 hours.
- Using the dough you set aside, roll out a layer the same size as the tray and place on top of the chocolate layer.
- Score the slice into cubes, and return to the freezer for another 4 hours.
- Serve and enjoy.
* 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.
