Homemade Non-Dairy Chocolate Icecream

For those of you who have been following my crazy journey for sometime now will know that i have a bit of a sweet tooth.... Chocolate, icecream and dessert to be exact! .... You could leave cheese, chips, pies, breads and crackers in my pantry for years without me giving them a single glance... but the former will get me salivating asap lol...

During my little Raw Vegan venture earlier this week i stumbled across some amazing desserts that i was desperate to whip up. The benefit of raw vegan desserts is that they contain no nasties - no added sugar, low in saturated fats, no hydrogenated fats, no wheat and no dairy! They do contain real fruit, high in mono and polyunsaturated fats, EFAs, protein and  fibre. Because there is no refined sugar you won't get a massive insulin spike either that can cause your sugar cravings to go out of control!

So here is my version of a HEALTHY non-dairy chocolate icecream:

1 large ripe banana sliced
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 avocado  (don't worry you can't taste it - it just gives the icecream a creamy texture)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 cup rice milk

- Put all ingredients in a food processor (my blender didn't cut it) and blend until you get a creamy consistancy.
- Pour the mixture into 4 x Paddle Pop moulds
- Freeze
