Time for some sweets! Try my green chocolate dipped Avocado Ice Cream Dessert … This is so good, Christmas and winter represented in one dessert. Easy to make, pretty, pure, natural, refined sugar free and full of nutrients. Is this really a dessert?!
I used silicon Christmas tree molds, they are so cute but you can of course use any shape you want. This a great dessert and it’s open to a lot of variation. Just blend, freeze, dip, decorate and done.
Ingredients for 4 trees/portions,
- 1 avocado
- 150 ml / 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. thick coconut cream
- 2 Tbsp. brown rice syrup or maple syrup with a few drops of stevia if needed, if you like it sweeter add a bit more, to taste
- tiny pinch of salt
- handful of fresh mint leaves
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- 1 tsp. chia seeds
- desiccated coconut
- 2 Tbsp. cacao nibs
- 2 Tbsp. cacao powder
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp. cacao powder
- a few drops of stevia
- tiny pinch of Himalaya sea salt
I have made 3 different fillings, you can also just pick one flavor.
- avocado, lime, coconut cream
- avocado, coconut cream, mint, cacao nibs
- avocado, coconut cream, cacao, raspberry filling
Blend the avocado, coconut cream, lime juice, vanilla powder, brown rice syrup and a tiny pinch of Himalaya sea salt. This is the basic avocado coconut ice cream. The inside of the trees is gorgeous green, creamy and spectacular when the chocolate cover is cracked open.
Option three is a chocolate ice cream with raspberry jam for filling. Instead of lime add 2 Tbsp. raw cacao powder. When the ice cream is half frozen scoop some of the ice out and replace it with some raspberry jam. Place it back in the freezer.
• 1/4 cup raspberries
• 1 tsp. brown rice or maple syrup or liquid sweetener of your choice
• 1 tsp. chia seeds
Blend the first two ingredients for the jam in a small blender, add the chia seeds and let it sit for 30 minutes.
Place the ice cream in the freezer. Melt the coconut oil, mix with cacao powder, stevia and tiny bit of salt. Remove the ice cream from the molds and dip them in the choco sauce. Because the fact that the ice trees are frozen, the choco dip cools and hardens immediately and you can double dip for a thicker coating.
I decorated one with small pieces of frozen raspberries, one snowy with desiccated coconut and one with chopped pieces of matcha macaroons.
Take them out and let it soften it for about 10 minutes before enjoying it. This makes the inside softer and easier to scoop it up!
