5 min Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

My husband and I love a little after dinner dark chocolate so last week I thru together a few simple ingredients in my Nutri-Bullet and Ta-Da! We had ice cream.   We use our Nutri-Bullet almost everyday and mostly for smoothies but this little trick has seriously fulfilled our chocolate ice cream cravings and for me it's completely dairy free.

5 minutes Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream (Dairy Free)

Fill your small Nutri-Bullet cup half full of ice cubes. 

1/2 cup of Coconut Cream (Trader Joes extra thick) chilled if possible 
1 T chia seeds
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
2 T honey

3 T dark chocolate chips, Coconut Chips, Nuts of choice (go crazy) 

Put all the ingredients except for the chocolate chips (nuts, coconut, etc) into the small Nuti-Bullet cup. 

Place on your blender lid, invert and push down to begin blending. Now listen to the blender, it won't take more than 30 seconds. You will notice you cannot hear the ice crunching anymore. 

Take the blender jar off of the blending unit and open it up. Now is the time to check the consistency. If it's too runny add a few more ice cubes and also now is a great time to add a few dark chocolate chips or even coconut chips. Replace the blender lid and pulse for just a few seconds if you want little bits of chocolate in your ice cream, blend longer if you want the chips and or the coconut finely incorporated. We like our ice cream with little bits of chocolate chips still visible. 

Remove the lid and add two spoons to the cup or pour into two individual bowls. 

This recipe makes two generous servings.  Serve and enjoy immediately. If for some reason your ice cream is a little runny for your liking simply place in the freezer for about 15 min, if you can wait that long.
