  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup


FOR THE ICE CREAM:

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked 2 hours

PREPARATION
TO MAKE THE BROWNIE BASE:
Read all recipe instructions prior to beginning.
In your food processor, blend together all ingredients until a creamy dough is formed. Press into a 6×10-inch pan or two 3×5-inch pans.


TO MAKE THE ICE CREAM:
Blend together all ingredients. Pour mixture over brownie base and place in the freezer. Stir ice cream occasionally until it becomes stiff. (about 1-2 hours) Remove from freezer and start adding your toppings.


TO MAKE THE COCONUT WHIPPED CREAM:
Take a can of coconut milk and place in the refrigerator upside down. Let it chill completely.
Remove your can of coconut milk and open from the bottom. Pour out the liquid and use it in a smoothie. Then you’re left with the whipped cream. Scoop that out onto the top of your ice cream.


TO MAKE THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
Combine ingredients together and drizzle over the top of your whipped topping.


TO SERVE:
Serve ice cream on top of the brownie, top with coconut cream, and add any additional toppings, such as peanut butter.
