This is the best raw/vegan "ice cream" recipe I've found! Creamy, tasty and yummy!
I combined a couple of recipes and tried a couple times and got it right!

Chocolate ice cream with an ice cream scoop
Raw/Vegan chocolate "ice cream"

2 cans full fat coconut milk
2/3 c. coconut palm sugar
5 heaping T. raw/organic cacao powder (or carob)
1/4 c. sunflower lecithin
pinch Himalayan sea salt
1 T. vanilla bean paste (or regular vanilla extract I suppose)
2 frozen bananas, sliced
2 T. non GMO soy lecithin (opt.)

3/4 c. coconut oil, melted

Blend all in a high speed blender till well incorporated and smooth. While blender is running drizzle in the liquid coconut oil. Pour into small containers and freeze or you can use an ice cream maker (although I haven't tried this recipe in an ice cream maker). This makes quite a bit. You can cut the recipe in half in desired--I'll let you do the math! :-)
