Açaí Ice Cream Bars

Servings 16
Prep Time 30 mins
Freezer Time 6 hrs
Total Time 6 hrs 30 mins

Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 TBS raw honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Açaí Ice Cream

  • 1 (14oz) can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup raw cashews (or 1/2 cup unsalted cashew butter)
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries (or other berry)
  • 200 grams (2 packets) frozen açaí
  • 1/3 cup raw honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • First, prepare the crust: add the almond flour, sweetener, and salt to a large mixing bowl and mix until thoroughly combined and a sticky crust begins to form.
  • Next, line an 8×8 square baking dish with parchment paper and add the crust to the lined dish. Using a second sheet of parchment paper, gently press the crust down into the dish, making sure the crust covers the entire bottom of the dish. Set aside.
  • Prepare the ice cream layer: add the coconut milk, cashews, frozen strawberries, frozen açaí, sweetener, and salt to a high speed blender and blend until a smooth and creamy consistency is reached.
  • Once blended, pour the ice cream mixture over the prepared crust and place the bars in the freezer to harden overnight (or for at least 6 hours). Make sure the bars are set on an even surface in the freezer.
  • After 6+ hours, remove the ice cream bars from the freezer. Let the bars thaw for 10 minutes before removing them from the dish.
  • After removing the bars from the dish, slice and enjoy!
