Maca Maple Ice Cream

Maca Maple Ice Cream

With Chocolate Chips

Though this ice cream is perfect for warm weather‚ maca has a slight warming quality‚ making it a good pick for cooler days as well. You do not need a ice cream maker for this recipe‚ however‚ if you do not have access to a high powered blender (like a Vitamix‚ Blendtec‚ or even a Magic Bullet)‚ soak the cashews and water together for 30 minutes before blending for smoother results.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Navitas Organics Cashew Whole Nuts
2 Tbsp Navitas Organics Maca Gelatinized Powder
1 Cup water
½ Banana
¼ Cup Maple Syrup
pinch Sea Salt
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
⅓ Cup chopped dark Chocolate

DIRECTIONS

Blend all ingredients – except the chopped dark chocolate – in a blender until completely smooth. Transfer to a bowl or Tupperware container and freeze for 30 minutes. Mix in dark chocolate chunks into the cold ice cream, then continue freezing, covered, until frozen through – about 6-8 hours.

Let defrost for 5 minutes before serving to soften.
