Vegan Ice-Cream Recipes by Personal Chef to Serena Williams

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.

To serve 
 Serve immediately or return it to the freezer.

-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.
