chocolate coconut (ice) cream

Here's an easy recipe for a delicious sweet cream. I had leftover coconut milk from making curry, and was in the mood for a yummy after-dinner treat. You can serve this cream straight, with a rich chocolate flavour, or as a decadent frozen treat.

Coconut cream
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup cashews, soaked and rinsed
3 tbsp agave nectar

blend until smooth.
Serve over fruits or a slice of cake.

Chocolate cream
coconut cream
3 tbsp cacao powder

blend until smooth.

Ideally you'd put it in an ice cream maker. However, I didn't have one. So, I put it in a container in the freezer. It has the appearance of having frozen solid, but really has a creamy consistency, even right out of the freezer.

For soft serve ice cream, only put the ice cream in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
