As the name would suggest, this ice cream is hardcore. Like Vin Diesel. It’s for die hard chocolate lovers only. If you ‘kinda like chocolate’, forget it, go find yourself some beige flavour like vanilla and leave this to the real chocolate fiends. Don’t get all huffy that I just called vanilla flavour ‘beige’ either, I enjoy a good vanilla ice cream as much as the next person but let’s be real, vanilla ice cream ain’t gonna knock anyone’s socks off. Vanilla ice cream is like the Kristin Stewart of ice cream, it serves a purpose but it’s pretty boring to both look at and experience. Thank God vanilla ice cream isn’t as angsty or have that nasty bitchy resting face though.
Onwards with the ice cream!
500ml full fat coconut cream
2 egg yolks
3-4 tbs raw cacao (depending on how chocolatey you like it)
2 tbs tapioca starch
2 tbs honey, maple syrup or rice malt syrup (add more if you like it sweeter)
1 cup Paleo Hero Choc Granola (or you could use some lightly toasted nuts or coconut)
Blend or whisk together all the ingredients except the granola until smooth. Heat over a low heat, whisking constantly until it comes to a boil then remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Once cool, pop it in the fridge to chill completely. When it is completely cold, whack it in your ice cream maker, add the granola & let that bad boy work its magic. I then transferred ihe to the freezer for about an hour to make it more ‘scoopable’. If you don’t have an ice cream maker you could freeze it in silicone cupcake moulds and reblend in the food processor once frozen for a soft serve style ice cream. Dig in.
