I am jumping on the salty dessert train. This dairy-free olive oil ice cream is creamy, dreamy, and the perfect mix of salty and sweet! INGREDIENTS 2 cans full fat coconut milk ½ cup raw cacao powder, sifted ⅓ cup coconut sugar ¼ cup coconut nectar ⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt ⅓ cup fruity extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving 1½ tablespoons vodka flaky sea salt, for serving INSTRUCTIONS Add the coconut milk, cacao powder, coconut sugar, coconut nectar, and ⅛ teaspoon sea salt to a medium saucepan and whisk to combine. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Let boil for 1 minute and continue to stir with the whisk. Remove from the heat. Pour the mixture into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk in the olive oil and vodka and allow it to cool on the counter for 45 minutes, whisking occasionally to release steam and help it cool, and then refrigerate until cold (about 1 hour). Once chilled, pour the mixture into your ice cream maker, and freeze according to your ice cream maker’s instructions (about 20 minutes) until just frozen. The texture will resemble soft-serve. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container, laying parchment paper along the top to prevent ice crystals, and allow it to harden in the freezer for 3-4 hours, or until it reaches your desired consistency. To serve, let the ice cream sit at room temperature for 3-4 minutes, then scoop and serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of flaky sea salt.
@sophiamor It's reaaally similar to agave nectar. I've seen it at Whole Foods before. But you can easily use agave nectar instead as a 1:1 substitute.
I don't know about the salt on the top but I like the sound of the rest of this recipe.
Sorry but where could I find coconut nectar?
Can I use normal sugar if I don't have coconut sugar?
