These ice cream lollies have been my favourite dessert for the past week! It’s pretty scorching hot in London so I couldn’t make these at a better time. They are really easy to make and they are a great dessert to have on hand when you crave something sweet. I absolutely love the combination of the cashews, coconut yogurt and Vita Coco Original Coconut Milk, they just create the creamiest and most decadent consistency perfect paired with rich raw cacao.
Makes between 5-6 ice lollies, depending on the size
Preparation time: 15 minutes + 3 hours for setting
1/2 cup of raw cashews soaked overnight or for at least 3 hours
2 heaped tbsp of plain coconut yogurt
4 tbsp of Vita Coco Original Coconut Milk
3 tbsp of maple syrup
2 tbsp of raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
A pinch of sea salt
About 40gr of good quality dark chocolate – melted
An handful of cacao nibs and coconut chips
Drain and rinse the cashews, add them to a blender together with all the other ingredients. Blend until you have a completely smooth and creamy consistency. If your blender is struggling add another dash of coconut milk but try to keep it as thick as possible for the best final consistency.
Pour the mixture into your ice lollies moulds. It should make between 5-6 ice lollies depending on the size. Place them in the freezer for 3-4 hours until they are completely solid.
When they are ready, to pop them out of the moulds simply place them under some hot water for few seconds util you can pull them out without any effort. Drizzle them with some of the melted chocolate and sprinkle with some cacao nibs and coconut chips.
Once decorated them store them in an airtight container in the freezer.
