This Thermomix Chocolate Mint Ice Cream is made with coconut milk, dates, peppermint essence, vanilla essence and cocoa powder. It's simple to prepare and tastes delicious!
After paying an extortionate amount for a tub of vegan ice cream at the supermarket, I felt it was time to try making my own. This version is made with natural ingredients and sweetened with dates instead of refined sugar.
It's a simple recipe to make but can be a little messy when you take the lid off of the Thermomix, which I discovered on my first attempt - there was brown mixture dripping everywhere!
Also, I have to stress - double check to make sure there are NO stones left in the dates. Even though they say pitted on the packet it is not always true. Many times I've come across stone fragments and they really don't taste good and not to mention the damage they can do to your teeth.
This recipe makes about four servings but can easily be doubled to make more.
Because it's a homemade ice cream, it will need to sit out of the freezer for about 20 minutes to soften otherwise it's too hard to scoop.
