Iced Chocolate Sandwich
Orange and chocolate are a great mix. Add simplicity of preparation, a superfood or two and something just a bit different to give it ‘pizazz’ and then freeze….
The final result in the photo had my non-raw significant others calling for more.
1 cup (moreorless) Walnuts
½ cup cacao powder
¾ cup sultanas (raisins)
Large zucchini (peeled), liquidise
cocao powder to taste
rind of half an orange, grated
dash of (non raw) orange balsamic vinegar
tspn chocolate liqueur (optional)
your preferred sweetener to taste
3 tablespoon Coconut Oil
Also cacao, coconut oil and sweetener for icing
Use your food processor to make a rubble of the walnuts, sultanas, pinch of salt, sultanas and maybe a few goji berries along with the cacao. Add a little coconut oil if required to moisten and press down into a large glass baking tray.
Now whiz up a loose chocolate-orange custard of the peeled zucchini, cacao and orange rind – as it will be frozen the flavours should be strong. Spike to taste with other flavours as you wish.
Freeze the dish and when it is solid enough remove from the freezer and ice with the chocolate coconut oil icing.
Freeze again and at serving time break and slice into rough chunks.
