Jandals, pohutukawa, bbqs, ice cream......kiwi summer.
They all go hand in hand right? Well the ice cream part can be a little trickier for some. A lot of people aren’t able to enjoy the iconic treat because they are either dairy intolerant or choose to stay away from refined sugars. The majority of options around are basically scoops of dairy and refined sugar so a lot of people miss out on what will be just a childhood memory.
Well, I’m pretty stoked to be able to bring you a delicious alternative.
This chocolate rough containing coconut & nut grounds is a tasty raw recipe with the addition of adaptogenic herbs. It utilises nut grounds from my latest batch of almond, cashew & date mylk. When you make nut mylk, never throw the grounds away! They are an amazing base for both traditional baking (think french flourless chocolate cake) AND for raw creations.
With feijoa season well and truly upon us in the south pacific, even the most hardened feijoa lovers are starting to wonder what to do with the excess! I was asked by Plastic Free Pantry to adapt a recipe that used chocolate & wine biscuits to make them with packaging-free ingredients. I was making nut mylk at the time and so it seemed natural to utilise the nut grounds as the base.
