Vegan Chocolate Crunch Soft ServePrint Recipe
- ½ cup full fat coconut milk from a can
- ½ cup dates
- ⅓ cup raw cacao powder
- 5 bananas ¾ cup pecans
- The day before making this dessert peel and roughly chop the bananas, lay them out on a cookie sheet or place them in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer. You will also want to pit the dates and add to a small dish filled with water and place in the refrigerator, this will soften the dates.
- When you are ready to make your soft serve add all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until everything is thoroughly mixed. If you do not have a food processor you can also make this in a high speed blender; in this case I suggest adding the coconut milk, dates and cacao first, blend until smooth. Then add the frozen banana pieces a few at a time so as to not overwhelm the blender; finally blend in the pecans.
- When the soft serve is fully mixed, pour into a metal loaf pan and place in the freezer for 3-4 hours, the soft serve will harden up just enough to be perfect for scooping and serving.
