Pecan Brownie with Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream, and Chocolate Sauce

I’ve been reading a lot of raw and vegan blogs lately and really enjoying all the wonderful recipes and stories that other raw foodies have to share. I recently came across this recipe for pecan brownies from A Bitt of Raw blog that is simple and super delicious. I topped it with a scoop of my home made chocolate coconut milk ice cream, and easy chocolate sauce. Here’s the recipe for the ice cream and sauce, and how I put the pieces altogether.

Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream
Ingredients:
3-4 Young Thai coconuts
1 cup soaked cashews
1 cup coconut cream
1/4-1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 T vanilla extract (non alcoholic)
1/2 cup to 2/3 cup agave nectar or organic maple syrup Grade B (or 1/2 and 1/2)
pinch of pink Himalayan salt
1 T coconut oil
few drops chocolate flavored SweetLeaf liquid stevia

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender and mix until super smooth, thick and creamy. Pour into containers and freeze – or place in ice cream maker and follow directions on machine. I don’t use an ice cream maker personally.

Sauce.
Ingredients:
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup Grade B (or mixed)
1/2 – 1 T hemp oil or extra virgin olive oil
few drops of chocolate flavored SweetLeaf liquid stevia

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

To serve:
Place pecan brownie on plate. Place a big scoop of the chocolate coconut ice cream on top, and drizzle the chocolate sauce. So delish! 🙂
