RECIPE: Salted caramel & cookie dough ice cream by Monica Yates



2 x 400 ml can full-fat coconut cream, chilled in the fridge
1 tsp maca powder
2 tsp vanilla bean powder or extract (make sure it is PURE vanilla bean)
Pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp unhulled tahini
3 tbsp raw cacao nibs

  1. Place all ingredients except the cacao nibs in a large mixing bowl. Using a handheld electric mixer, blend the mixture until light and fluffy. The more air you get into the cream, the lighter the ice-cream will be. Stir through the cacao nibs.
  2. Break up the melted chocolate chocolate chip cookies and add half of them to the cream. Pour into a freezer safe container and sprinkle with the rest of the broken up cookie. Allow to set overnight.
  3. To serve, pull it out of the freezer 15 minutes before you want to eat it to allow it to melt slightly. Please be aware that this ice-cream doesn’t contain preservatives and isn’t made in an ice-cream machine so it is not as easy to scoop out. However, it tastes damn good and it’s healthy!
