COFFEE ICE CREAM HAZELNUT COOKIE ICE CREAM SANDO'S

personal, chef, healthy, nutritious, meals, dairy free, ice cream 1

This recipe is vegan and made from all natural ingredients. The ice cream is made with cashews, coconut milk, coconut sugar, and coffee. The coconut sugar’s rich golden color is what gives the ice cream it’s coffee-like color. The cashews gives a creaminess that feels most similar to dairy-based ice creams. The cookies are made with a base of dates, hazelnuts, and cacao. This dessert is not overly (or conventionally) sweet so if you do like things to be on the sweeter end, go for the higher suggested coconut sugar portion and add maple syrup to the cookie.
