Raw Cherry & Tahini Chocolate Ice Cream

Cherries are in season.
Although we all eat ice cream throughout the year, it always seems to bring greater pleasure in July. Why is that? Perhaps that why the whole month is dedicated to the number one summer treat. Today also happens to be National Ice Cream Day.
It has been beyond great trying vegan substitutes over the years. From So Delicious to Nada Moo, possibilities are unlimited. Each and everyday flavor combinations are becoming more top notch, more creative even. Just last week, Little Baby's Ice Cream set up a cart near work. They had options like Salted Strawberry and Coconut Chai. I selected the latter, enjoying every last bit of that yummy, scrumptious dessert.
My favorite homemade versions are Banana Chai Tea Ice Cream and Avocado Cheesecake.

Bananas, tea, and spices make Banana Chai Tea Ice Cream a fond memory.

Avocado lime cheesecake with its creamy goodness and crust pieces is turned into ice cream heaven in Avocado Cheesecake Ice Cream.

For my latest concoction, I'm bringing tahini obsession to the ice cream world. Blended with fresh, dark sweet cherries, full fat coconut milk, and fair trade cocoa powder, this raw celebration of flavors brings divine, nutty amazement spoonful after spoonful.

Raw Cherry & Tahini Chocolate Ice Cream Ingredients and Preparation

10 dark cherries, rinsed and pitted (or 1/2 cup frozen cherries)
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup cane sugar (maple or date syrup)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pink salt

Mix ingredients together in a blender or food processor (or better yet an ice cream maker!).
Freeze for 6-8 hours (or overnight).

Unfortunately, my ice cream started melting right away.

Cherry jubilee bliss is a can't miss.
