Sunday: Orange Cacao Bean Chip Ice Cream

Orange Cacao Bean Chip Ice Cream

When I was younger orange chocolate chip was probably one of my favorite ice cream flavors!

Of course, when I made it I had no high fructose corn syrup, emulsifier 198, guar gum, or soy lethicin on hand, so that meant I had to use raw vegan ingredients, but that's cool, because it turned out waaay better than anything I could have ever bought!

You may have heard me whining about the lack of cacao nibs where I live. Well, we managed to find cacao beans, so I simply took off the little skin and broke them up! Voila, chocolate drops!

My interesting discovery while making this was that surprisingly when you juice oranges, the juice isn't actually the bright orange colour of the peel! Who knew? I certainly didn't.

  1. Orange chocolate chip was always my favorite too. It doesn't matter if it is not bright orange. Remember the "other" food manufacturers also add coloring. Yours looks beautiful and delicious.
