Home made seriously healthy CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM

Did you know – that we consume 600,000 tons of chocolate world-wide each year? 

I know I do my bit to keep that number up 🙂 

As I love chocolate, I was happy to come across a very healthy version of chocolate ice cream in 

Pamela Vinten’s recipe book for raw chocolate treats and desserts. The secret is in the RAW chocolate: 



2 cups cashews
2/3 cup dates
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup cacao powder
pinch salt

Top with chopped activated roasted almonds.

Using a blender or thermo mix, mix all ingredients to a
smooth, creamy mousse like consistency.

This may take a while. If necessary stop
the blender and scrape down the sides.
Place in freezer for an hour or so (if you
can wait that long!)

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
