Chocolate and nuts, they just make for such a beautiful flavour combination! You can find a few recipes on my blog, that play with this combination. I haven’t tried too many recipes with walnuts yet. Though they are such a delicious nut with a good portion of Omega 3s.

When winter started here in New Zealand not long ago, and when I saw how summer hit the Northern hemisphere, it had to be ice cream. Because almost nothing is better on a cold winter day, then enjoying some delicious vegan ice cream and dreaming of summer 😉

This recipe for walnut chocolate ice cream can be made with an ice-cream maker or with a high-speed blender. You can find both options below. As always, it is vegan, gluten-free and without refined sugar 🙂

1 pinch salt

some chopped walnuts for garnish (optional)

Instructions with high-speed blender:

1. Blend all ingredients in a powerful blender until smooth.

2. Pour mixture into large ice cube forms or approx. finger thick into freezer safe containers. Place in freezer.

3. Once frozen, chop up the slabs into rough chunks and place in high-speed blender. Blend on high-speed, using the temper to press the chunks into the blades (similar as you would make nice cream out of frozen bananas). If you leave the ice cream in the freezer for longer, let the ice cream thaw for at least 1/2 hour before serving.

Enjoy! 🙂
