Chocolate Raspberry “Ice Cream” with Gelatin
Do you miss ice cream since going paleo and removing dairy from your diet?? Well if you do here is an alternative that has a texture very similar to ice cream. And not an ounce of dairy involved.
Servings: 6 servings
- 2 bananas
- 2 cups rasberries
- 1 cup coconut butter or cream or concentrate
- 1/4 cup cacao butter
- 1 tablespoon organic vanilla extract
- 1 inch sea salt
- 3 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoon gelatin
- 2 tablespoon honey or maple syrup Optional: I don't think this recipe needs it, but if you want it slightly sweeter this is a good addition
Place a medium pot on low heat on the stove
Add the bananas, raspberries, coconut butter, cacao butter, vanilla and sea salt and allow to melt together, stirring frequently until everything is melted together and the lumps are removed
Add the cocoa powder and stir until combined
Add the gelatin and stir until combined and the gelatin has dissolved
Remove from heat, pour into a large bowl and place in the freezer
Freeze for 1.5 to 2 hours, stirring every 30-45 minutes until you have the consistency you desire
Serve and enjoy!
NOTE: If you freeze it for too long and it gets completely hard, simply place on the counter at room temperature and allow to thaw for 30-60 minutes.
NOTE: Store this in the fridge once you are satisfied with the texture. It keeps well in the fridge for days (if it lasts that long)
