These raspberry ice-cream bites look pretty good hey? Drooling yet? You know you’ve got a winner when you create something that’s almost wholefoods, cause if it wasn’t for the dark chocolate these would be artificial sugar and dairy free. We loved the dark chocolate dipped in the whole ice-cream bite, but if you don’t want so much chocolate just drip it over the top. Alternatively you could create and make your very own vegan chocolate by mixing 2 tblsp cacao powder, 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted) and 1/4 cup maple syrup together.
This ice-cream will go hard once frozen, so don’t expect to pull it out of the freezer and take a lovely big soft bite straight away. It doesn’t contain any anti-freeze, preservatives, or isn’t filled with air, so you won’t get the same affect like we’re used to from the supermarket stuff. I find if you get it out when you’re eating dinner, it’s usually soft enough to eat by dessert.
We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think.
