Hold onto your horses, because this recipe is unlike anything I've ever shared on my blog before. Introducing... my Dairy-Free Chocolate Fudge Walnut Ice Cream.
You won't believe how simple and easy this recipe is- no fancy ice cream makers needed! Oh, and did I mention, it's fully vegan, dairy-free, and refined-sugar free. Don't let that scare you though, because this ice cream is absolutely delicious, and will change your LIFE.


  • 1 Cup Raw Cashews soaked at least 2 hours (or if you are short on time, pour boiling water on top and soak for 30 minutes)
  • 1 14 oz Can Full-Fat Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips chop 1/2 cup of them and leave 1/4 cup intact
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Walnuts chopped


  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a blender or food processor, add the soaked/drained cashews, coconut milk, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt.
  • Blend until smooth and creamy, like a smoothie consistency.
  • Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and gently stir in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of the walnuts.
  • Freeze for 4-5 hours.
  • Remove from the freezer, sprinkle remaining chocolate chips and chopped walnuts on top.
  • Use a cookie scoop and serve in bowls or on a cone!
