Creamy and delicious, this Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream make a great treat, is packed with nutrients and can be whipped up in a flash!

Yields4 Servings
 2 cups mixed hazelnuts and cashews (soaked until soft)
 4 cups water
 1/2 cup Changing Habits Cacao Melts + extra chopped for garnish
 1/2 cup ghee
 2-3 tsp vanilla essence
 1/2 - 3/4 cup Changing Habits Dates
 1/2 - 1 avocado
1

Remove the excess water from the soaked nuts using a strainer.

2

Add the cacao melts and ghee to a small saucepan and heat on low until completely melted. Allow this to cool off the heat.

3

Now add the soaked nuts, 1/2 cup of dates, water, vanilla, cinnamon, melted cacao and ghee + salt to a high-speed blender or thermomix and blitz until completely smooth, creamy and combined.

4

Taste the mix and add more dates if you need more sweetness and re-blend on high until combined.

5

Pour the mixture into a lined tin and place it in the freezer to set.

6

Take the frozen chocolate mix out of the freezer and slice it up into rough squares.

7

Place them into your food processor or thermomix and blend.

8

Add 1/2 of the avocado to the mix and re-blend. It should help it to blend and to become even creamier. If you need more avocado, add the rest in and re-blend.

9

When it's ready, scoop it into 4 bowls and enjoy straight away. We topped ours with chopped Changing Habits Cacao Melts, but you could also sprinkle Changing Habits Shredded Coconut, cinnamon, fresh berries, banana or toasted nuts or seeds on top too.

So many store-bought dips contain all sorts or artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. This dip is made purely from beautiful, wholefood ingredients. Great to have with seedy crackers, veggie sticks or even on a nice piece of toasted sourdough!
