- 6–8 vanilla almond milk ice cubes (see recipe below)
- ½ cup frozen avocado
- 1 tablespoon chocolate Sunwarrior Collagen protein
- 2 teaspoons raw cacao or raw carob
- ½ teaspoon liquid stevia – English Toffee or other sweetener
- Non-alcoholic vanilla extract
Almond Milk Ingredients
- 1 cup pre-soaked almonds
- 3 cups water
- Vanilla bean or liquid vanilla extract to taste
- Stevia to taste or sweetener of your choice
Directions Almond Milk
- Soak almonds in filtered water for 8 hours.
- Drain and rinse well.
- In a high-powered blender, blend well.
- Using a nut milk bag or strainer, strain to remove the almond pulp.
- Place strained almond milk back into the blender.
- Scrape the vanilla pod to remove the vanilla bean and add to the almond milk. Do not throw away the vanilla pods. Add the vanilla extract.
- Add the stevia and blend on low.
- Pour the almond milk into a mason jar and add in the vanilla pod.
- Allow the vanilla pod to infuse its flavor into the milk for at least a few hours or longer.
- Place the almond milk in ice cube trays and freeze well.
Directions Ice Cream
- Once the almond milk ice cubes are fully frozen, add the almond milk cubes and avocado to a food processor or a high-powered blender and blend until the almond milk cubes are slightly slushy.
- Add the chocolate protein powder, raw cacao or raw carob, vanilla, and stevia and blend again until creamy. Do not over mix. The ingredients should bind together and have an ice cream consistency (a food processor does this the best).
- Place ice cream in a glass ice cream cup and drizzle with vanilla extract.
**Optional for more Keto ingredients top ice cream with one or two of any of the following ingredients - coconut flakes, cacao nibs, walnuts, pecans or any other nut or seed of your liking.
