Raw Chocolate Ice Cream

This is another recipe from The Earth Diet that I would like to share with you. Ice cream is another one of my favorite desserts and this recipe from Liana at The Earth Diet makes it possible to have a healthy nutritious ice cream treat. I have made other raw nut ice creams, but so far I think that this walnut version is my favorite.

Original recipe can be found here.

1 1/2 cups walnuts
1 cup water
1/2 cup maple syrup
dash of sea salt
2 tablespoons cacao
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

For some other variations try adding one of the following:
1/2 cup raw cacao chips
1/2 cup chopped homemade peanut butter cups
1/2 cup chopped raw cookie dough bites
1/2 cup chopped raw chocolate coconut balls

Put ingredients into a powerful blender, I use the Vita-Mix. Blend until smooth and creamy. If adding any of the optional additions, stir them in after blending the ice cream. Transfer to a bowl and put in the freezer for a few hours (I left mine for 3 1/2 hours). Serve after freezing for a few hours for a soft serve type or freeze overnight for a harder ice cream.
