  • 1 1/2 cups/(300 g) of fresh strawberries
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) dark chocolate (85%) or cacao nibs

  2. Chop the remaining 5 strawberries into small pieces and stir into the strawberry mixture.
  3. Chop the chocolate finely or melt the chocolate to achieved ribbons of chocolate.
  4. Add the strawberry mixture to an ice cream maker and let run for 10 minutes then slowly drizzle the melted chocolate or sprinkle the chocolate chunks into the ice cream maker as the ice cream maker is turned on. Let it run for another 15-20mins. If you do not eat this immediately transfer to a container and freeze.
  5. If you do not have an ice cream maker pour the strawberry mixture into a tin or container then swirl the melted chocolate on the top and freeze until firm.
