Instructions

For the Chunky Monkey Ice Cream

  • Place all the ingredients, except the cashew butter and chocolate pieces, into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour ½ of the chocolate ice cream mixture into the baking pan.
  • Next, sprinkle ¼ cup of the chocolate pieces over the ice cream.
  • Then pour 2 tablespoons of (microwaved) cashew butter over the chocolate and ice cream layer.
  • Pour the rest of the ice cream mixture over the cashew butter, add the remaining chocolate pieces, and cashew butter.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 6-8 hours or overnight.
  • Take out of the freezer, let it sit on the countertop to defrost 5-10 minutes before slicing. Add a couple of graham crackers to make an ice cream sandwich. Enjoy!

Graham Cracker Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Beat together the cashew butter and coconut sugar with an electric hand mixer.
  • Once fluffy and light in color, stop mixing, scrape down the sides and add the flax egg.
  • Beat again until the flax egg is combined, then add the rest of the dry ingredients.
  • Once a thick dough ball is formed, scoop onto a large piece of parchment paper and press into a rectangle shape.
  • Place another large piece of parchment paper over that, and with a rolling pin, roll into a thin rectangular sheet (about 10”x 7”), about ¼" thick.
  • Cut into a grid pattern, 3 lines across horizontally and 5 lines vertically, making 15 squares. With a fork, poke holes into the tops of each one.
  • Transfer graham crackers to a large cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, then let cool completely. Use 2 crackers to make an ice cream sandwich and enjoy!
