Just a blender, super foods, and some luv.
Chocolate Chip-Mango Nice Cream
This super decadent treat was created when I was just coming out of yet another detox and I craved something cold, milky, sweet, with something crunchy in it. The challenge was that it had to be very clean, healing, and super healthy. I came up with this ‘heavenly decadence’ and fell in love.
It is always in my freezer now for those cozy movie nights in.
- 1 frozen mango, peeled and stoned
- 2/3 cup of coconut milk
- A touch of Himalayan salt
- ¼ t Vanilla seeds
- 2 T Raw cacao nibs
- 1 handful of raisins *
Optional ingredient: 1 T of sweetener, if you are a serious sweet lover.
Cut the mango into smaller pieces that can be managed by the blender.
Place mango pieces in a blender together with coconut milk, salt and vanilla. Blend stopping a few times to assist the mango chunks to get close to the center. It might take 3-5 stops. When smooth and creamy, using a spatula transfer the mixture in a plastic container. Throw the cacao nibs and raisins in, folding them into the creamy mango. Resist the temptation to eat it all right now. It will get even better after a few hours. Place the “decadence” in a freezer for at least two hours before indulging. The dance of flavors: mango and coconut, the crunchy cacao nibs and the chewy raisins. It is really outta this world!
If you keep this treat in a freezer, it will get hard. Just take it out 20-30 mins before you intend to enjoy it. Serve it in a nice bowl. Decorate with cacao nibs and coconut shreds.
*If you soak the raisins in good rum for a few weeks, you will end up with a serious gourmet nice-cream that is slightly naughty. Kind of like us, you and me. :-)
