Cooking Time



  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups unsweetened dairy-free milk of choice (we use almond milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia powder
  • 6 pitted dates
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum


  1. In a small bowl soak the cashews in enough water to cover them for one hourIn a separate bowl soak the dates in the milk for one hour.
  2. After the dates and cashews are soaked at them to a blender with the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3. In an airtight container freeze the mixture for 3 hours or until it reaches the ice cream texture.
  4. If you'd rather use your ice cream maker, freeze the mixture for one hour and then follow your ice cream maker instructions. This method yields a softer ice cream like soft serve.
