Lime and Dark Chocolate Ice Cream (Refined Sugar and Dairy Free!)

Although the colour of this Ice Cream may be deceiving,  you have the intense zing from the lime cutting through the bitter dark chocolate.
It is awesome!
Don’t just take my word for it though, give it a whirl, no fancy Ice Cream Maker required!


You will need:
1 Tin Full Fat Coconut Milk
1/4 Cup Organic Coconut Sugar
Juice and Zest of 1 Lime – Make sure you squeeze out aaalll the juice!
1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Bean Paste
2 Squares of Dark Chocolate – Grated (Richfield’s if you want to avoid Refined Sugar or Whittaker’s Dark Ghana if you want to avoid Dairy)

This ones easy!
Just throw all your ingredients into your mixer with a balloon whisk attachment or a mixing bowl if your going to whisk by hand. Mix for a minute until everything is well combined. Next pop the covered bowl into the freezer. Every half hour for 2 hours take it out and give it a quick whisk. After the fourth whisk you can transfer it to a loaf tin or similar( I used a silicone loaf mould) Leave for 12 hours and then thaw on your bench for 10 minutes before giving it a final whisk and serve!

Next time I will replace the Lime with Orange for Jaffa Ice Cream, or perhaps I will go for a simple Chocolate Ice Cream and ditch the citrus all together, add Dark Cocoa and up the Vanilla. Or…..
