Coconut Mocha Trio Ice Cream

Coconut Mocha Trio Ice Cream
 Ice cream is always a treat. However, the commercial ice creams, and dairy choices can be very high in sugar and fat, and could cause food sensitivities. Plus it's costly! Homemade non-dairy ice cream is our family favorite. The ingredients are fresh, simple, and it's easy to make.

Some of our favorite flavors are chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. What better way to enjoy these tasty flavors than as a mocha trio! Here's the recipe:




Ice Cream Base.
(3 scoops per serving; makes about 6 servings or more)

Ingredients.
1 cup coconut milk (full fat)
1 cup coconut milk (lite)
1 cup ground cashews
3/4 cup grade B organic maple syrup
1 T vanilla extract (non alcoholic)
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1 T coconut oil
1/4 to 1 cup water (as needed)

Preparation.
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender, in order listed. Blend on high until thick and smooth (like pudding), and slightly warm. Add water as needed to adjust thickness. Split base into three portions. Pour portions into containers with lids that can be placed in the freezer.

Place 1 of the filled containers in the refrigerator and let chill for one hour. Remove from refrigerator and carefully stir in additional ingredients for Coconut Chocolate Swirl Flavor. Do not completely stir as the ingredients should appear as a "swirl" of flavors and not combined. Place back into the refrigerator and let chill an additional half hour to an hour.

Place contents of the second container back into the blender. Add next ingredients (see below) to create coffee mocha flavor. Prepare as stated above. Pour coffee mocha mixture back into container and seal. Place in refrigerator to chill for one hour.

Place contents of third container into blender. Add the final ingredients (see below) to create mocha chocolate flavor. Prepare as stated above. Pour mixture back into container and seal. Place in refrigerator to chill for one hour.

1-2 T prepared organic chocolate fudge sauce
1 T cacao nibs

1 T cacao nibs

Mocha Chocolate Flavor.
Ingredients.
1/2 T organic coffee extract or essential oil flavoring
1 1/2 T raw cacao powder
dash ground cinnamon

Preparing the Ice Cream.
Prepare one flavored mixture at a time when following next instructions. Place chilled mixture into ice cream maker and following instructions as stated in the ice cream maker guide. Remove and place in sealed container and freeze for one to two hours before serving. Store in freezer up to 3 months. Prepare remaining two flavored mixtures in the same way.

*Note: If you do not have an ice cream maker you can try using a food processor or blender, by first freezing the containers for about 30-60 minutes till almost frozen. Remove, process until creamy like ice cream, and return to sealed containers. Store in freezer until ready to serve.

Plate and Serve.
Place one generous scoop each of the three flavors and place in a serving bowl. Top with prepared organic chocolate fudge sauce, whip topping, and top with cacao nibs, then serve. Enjoy!
