Chocolate Orange ‘Nice-Cream’ with a Hot Chocolate Sauce

This recipe is one that I created for Rebel Kitchen as their guest blogger and is one of my favourite desserts to date! It literally tastes like you are indulging on a Terry’s Chocolate Orange in a gooey cold form and absolutely transports you to heaven (my heaven is me rolling around in Chocolate so I hope we share the same image here).

“Nice-cream” is one of my favourite go to sweet treats as it is overwhelmingly easy to make and beats any sugar laden bought ice cream tub any day! When I was a student, I would happily get through a tub of Ben & Jerry’s in an evening and I promise you that this is even better and you can eat it guilt free!

The hot sauce and orange flavours bring a real festive element to the nice-cream staple but can be enjoyed any time, any where…

If you don’t have a rebel kitchen mylk at hand then you can use any plant based milk and add 1 tbsp of cacao powder to the mix.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 frozen bananas
  • 1/4 cup Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Orange Mylk
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder
FOR THE SAUCE:
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Orange Mylk

 

METHOD

  1. Place the frozen bananas in a food processor and blitz until broken down.
  2. Add the mylk, orange zest and cacao powder and blend again until thick and creamy. Be careful not to go a step too far to a smoothie consistency.
  3. Spoon into bowls and pop in the freezer whilst you make the sauce.
  4. To make the sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and place in the microwave for 20 seconds. Remove and stir well until sauce begins to thicken. Heat again for a further 10 seconds if you prefer it hotter. Alternatively, you can heat the sauce in a double boiler over simmering water and stir until melted and thick.
  5. Remove ‘nice’ cream from the freezer and pour the sauce over the top. The hot sauce should harden as it reaches the cold ‘nice’ cream.
  6. Top with cacao nibs and mandarin slices and enjoy!
