Coconut meat appears to protect against heart disease and stroke as well. As it turns out, coconut meat’s measurable vitamins A and E, and polyphenols and phytosterols, all work together to decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol, which are fats that stay in the blood and in skin tissues and high levels of which have been found a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.

“CHOCOLATE SMOTHERED COCONUT ICE CREAM” pretty much says it… except that this treat is raw, healthy and heck yeah- it tastes as amazing as it looks!

For Chocolate Smothered Coconut Ice Cream
  1. In a medium sauce pan place your coconut milk in. On simmer heat, reduce the coconut milk to 2 cups (about 2 hours), stir often. Use a calibrated thermometer to be sure you do not go above 110 degrees F.
  2. While this is reducing, in your food processor, fine chop the coconut meat.
  3. Add the meat to a large bowl and cover with the water. Stir often. Allow to soak while your coconut milk is reducing.Drain well.
  4. In your blender add the soaked/drained coconut meat. Add in the reduced coconut milk and honey. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, this is your ice cream base.
  5. Add the ice cream base to your ice cream maker and complete the cycle.
  6. After the cycle is complete, use a small ice cream scoop (one that is half the size of a traditional ice cream scoop) and make 24 uniform ice cream scoops. Set on a small sheet pan.
  7. Place in the freezer and freeze for 1 hour. Remove from the sheet pan and either serve or store in an air tight covered container in the freezer.
For Warm Raw Chocolate Sauce
  1. You will need a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup and a small pan. Place the Pyrex in the pan and fill the pan with water half way up the Pyrex, be sure not to get water in the Pyrex.
  2. Add your coconut oil in and turn the stove on low and heat the water to 110 degrees F. Use a calibrated thermometer to be sure.
  3. Heat the coconut oil until melted. Whisk in the honey and the cacao powder until smooth.
When ready to serve
  1. Take the ice cream out of freezer, place 3 scoops in each dish.
  2. Use a tablespoon and spoon the warm raw chocolate sauce over the scoops (you want it to look like the picture).
  3. Allow this to set up for 1 minute then repeat a second layer over the first layer, allow to set up for 1 minute and cover with a third layer and serve. ENJOY!

Chef: 

I have been a chef and photographer for many years now. Food has always been a passion of mine. Whether it is at the farm, at the market, or being served at the family’s table, food should be fresh and vibrant. I believe that just because it is healthy, there is no reason why our taste buds should not dance. I recently just published my first book “live eat learn RAW”, this is going to be one of many. In search of a quiet healthy life, I have found a rustic and simple way to live, eat, learn; I now want to share that way with you…
