Vegan Glutenfreie Schoko Eiscreme Ohne Nuesse Fruchtgesuesst Rezept 3 1

Chocolate Ice Dream (Vegan, Gluten-free, No Refined Sugar, Nut-free, Soy-free, No Coconut)

Last week marked the first of June and therefore beginning of Winter here in New Zealand. And with a bang, it suddenly was (like) winter. Well, not what an inhabitant of the upper Northern hemisphere would call winter, but cold enough to put on an extra layer of clothing before leaving the house 😉

After a few variations I can say that it is quite crucial to add some kind of seed or nut in order to achieve a deliciously creamy texture. I opted for sunflower seeds because they are my personal favourite. You could also use pumpkin seeds or nuts, if you are OK with them. Make sure you soak them though.

Please note: I cook the sweet potato without peeling it, in a pot topped with water. Then let it cool down a little before peeling. This way it won’t soak up so much water. You can also bake it in the oven until tender.

1/2 cup (140g) cooked kūmara (sweet potato)

3/4 cup (75g) FAIR-TRADE cocoa or cacao powder

Preparation with ice-cream maker

1. In a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients but the cacao nibs until smooth. If your blender isn’t very powerful, let the dates soak in the water for a while.

2. Transfer mixture to the ice cream maker and churn until it is almost finished.

3. Pour in the cacao nibs and let churn for another 2 or 3 minutes.

4. Scoop the ice ‘dream’ into a freezer safe container and pop in freezer for an hour or so to let firm up properly.

Preparation without high-speed blender:

1. In a high-speed blender, blend all ingredients but the cacao nibs until smooth. If your blender isn’t very powerful, let the dates soak in the water for a while.

2. Transfer the mixture into freezer safe containers, filling the container not higher than the thickness of your finger. Place in freezer until solid.

3. Pop frozen ice dream slabs onto work bench and cut into cubes.

4. Place ice cubes in high speed blender and using the tamper, push them at medium speed into the blades until it is ice-creamy.

5. Scoop a layer of the  ice ‘cream’ into a freezer safe container, sprinkle with cacao nibs. Then add another layer and sprinkle with cacao nibs again. Repeat until finished. Place in freezer until it is more firm.

Enjoy! 🙂
