Coconut brownie with mojito ice cream
This is recipe demonstrates how easy raw brownies and soft scoop ice cream is to make. And with no expensive equipment! The hand blender I use costs £35.....I do use it in a lot of my recipes. It has a chopper attachment and whisk. This is a great cheap piece of kit to buy as you can do so many things with it and it doesn't take up much space.
This is a great base recipe for raw brownies and an easy one to remember too, 4 parts ground nuts to 1 part each of oil, syrup and cacao. You can substitute the syrup or nuts for another type of syrup or nuts. You could add spices, Himalayan salt or goji berries.
