Sweet Cream to Mocha Ice Cream

I specifically created the Sweet Cream recipe to use in my Banana-Yam Cannoli recipe. The cream was so delicious, but I made way too much, so I decided to convert the rest into a delicious and smooth raw Mocha Ice Cream. The ice cream was a big hit around my house, and didn’t last long at all. Enjoy!

Sweet Cream (raw).
Ingredients:
1 cup macadamia nuts (soaked 8-12 hours)
¾ cup cashews (soaked 6-8 hours)
¼ cup raw agave nectar
2 T raw coconut oil
1 ½ tsp non-alcoholic vanilla extract
1 tsp raw vanilla powder
2 T lucuma powder
3-6 drops vanilla flavored SweetLeaf liquid stevia
1 cup (more or less) coconut water

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients except for coconut oil in a high speed blender. Mix on high until creamy and smooth. Add coconut oil and continue blending. Serve as is, or use to make ice creams. Keep refrigerated up to one week.

Serving suggestions:
Use with Banana-Yam Cannoli recipe, or to make Mocha Ice Cream.
