I have posted a few ice-cream recipes already.
I just can’t get enough :-0
Now that dairy or refined sugar are not my favourite things to consume I tend to make my own these days.
This time I am using one of my favourite ingredients. Tahini! Tahini is sesame paste that add ice-cream even creamier texture. You can certainly use light colour tahini but I used black tahini.
I wanted to make this ice-cream sugar free. Luo han guo is also called monk fruit. It has a zero glycemic index, contains no calories and is suitable for diabetics. The sweetness comes from mogrosides which make up approx 1% of the fruit by weight. Unlike stevia which sometimes have a distinct after taste luo han guo is quite mild. You only need small amount to sweeten your recipe.
RAW VEGAN BLACK SESAME ICE CREAM
1 cup plant based milk of your choice (I used sprouted oats)
1 cup coconut meat
1/4 cup cashews, soaked, rinsed
two pinches of salt
2 tsp luo han guo 7 percent
2 tbsp tahini paste
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
Blend all but coconut oil in a blender till smooth.
Add the oil and blend further
pour into an ice-cream maker and follow the instruction
