  Cuisine Coconut Oil 610ml, Organic & Odourless (Biona)

  1. Make the fudge brownie mix first. In a coffee grinder/food processor or liquidiser with a suitable blade grind the pecan halves and almonds into a medium-fine meal/powder. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the dates, coconut oil and sunflower seeds to the food processor or liquidiser and blitz into a paste. (The coconut oil and sunflower seeds help to bring together the dates into a workable, non-clumping paste).
  3. Transfer this into the mixing bowl with the ground nuts. Now add the 30g of cacao powder, ½ tsp of vanilla paste, black sesame seeds, maca powder and pinch of salt. Combine all the ingredients together by hand or if you wish squash together with the back of a fork.
  4. Bring together together into a ball. This recipe makes double the amount of fudge pieces. You should end up with around 360g of brownie mix. Cut in half and roll out half the mixture to around a centimetre thick. Using a sharp knife cut into small oblongs and put in a freezer-proof container. If you want to shape them into neater cubes then do this before popping in the freezer.
  5. Now make the ice-cream. We used a 'freezer bowl' type ice-cream maker. Remember to place your ice-cream maker bowl into the freezer according to the manufacturers instructions. We put ours in the night before.
  6. Put the cashew nuts, 50g of cacao powder, Espresso coffee powder, 1 tsp of vanilla paste, xanthan gum, coconut sugar, coconut syrup and 300ml of the coconut milk drink into a liquidiser. Blend until smooth
  7. Transfer into a large jug and whisk in the remainder of the milk. You should have achieved a consistency slightly thicker than single cream.
  8. Switch on your ice-cream machine and gradually pour in the mixture. Churn until you have a thick dropping consistency. Ours took just over 30 minutes.
  9. Add around half of the fudge pieces from the freezer and stir in. Transfer the ice-cream into a lidded freezer-proof container and freeze for at least 5 hours. We left ours overnight. Put the remaining the fudge pieces back in the freezer.
  10. Remove the ice-cream from the freezer 10-15 minutes before serving. We recommend warming your ice-cream scoop in a mug of boiling water to make scooping out easier.
  11. What should I do with the other half of the fudge brownie mix? You can make more fudge cubes to garnish your Mocha ice-cream when serving or alternatively why not roll flat and cut into large squares to enjoy as a separate snack!
