My friend, Dorit, author of Celebrating Our Raw Nature 1 & 2, and former personal chef to Serena Williams, has given me two vegan ice-cream recipes from her upcoming book, Recipes For A Serene Life to share exclusively with all of you.
Creamy Carob Ice-Cream
Recipe by Dorit
13.5 oz / 380 g can (with all the fat) coconut milk
4.5 oz / 127 g avocado (about 1 medium avocado), peeled and pithed
1/2 cup unsweetened carob powder
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut water
Dash of Nutmeg
Dash of Cardamon ( optional)
-Add the avocado and coconut milk to a food processor or VERY high speed blender and pulse together.
-Add the remaining ingredients and blend in for about 2 minutes until smooth and mixed in.
-Place in a BPA-free, freezer-safe container . Place in the freezer and allow to freeze for 1 hour.
-Remove from freezer & whisk slightly every 20 minutes (to avoid it getting too icy_ for 3-4 hours. It should be getting thicker after each whisking, until it is firm enough to scoop.
-If you return the mixture to the freezer, it’s important that you thaw this for 5-10 minutes prior to serving and use an ice cream scoop to serve it.

1 14- ounce can full-fat coconut milk refrigerated overnight
2 very ripe avocados halved, pithed and peeled

-In a VERY high-speed blender, add the peeled and pitted avocado’s. Add coconut milk, then the banana, maple syrup, lemon juice and mint leaves. Blend until smooth and creamy.
-Pour the mixture into the chilled glass container and make sure the mixture is smooth & evenly distributed. Cover & freeze this mixture overnight or for most of the day.
To serve, remove from the freezer around 10-15 minutes before serving & sprinkle some raw pistachio nuts on top.
