Creamy Raw Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Raw Cacao Chip Ice Cream

2 Cups raw organic cashews (soaked overnight)
1/2 Cup agave nectar
1 Cup coconut water
1/2 Cup coconut oil/butter
1 Tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp mesquite powder
1-2 Tbsp cacao nibs (real chocolate chips! Yay!)

In a high speed blender, combine all ingredients (leaving out the cacao nibs... add nibs the last five minutes in the ice cream maker) until the mixture is smooth. Place mixture in the freezer to get nice and chilled through (about an hour) but not frozen. Remove from freezer and complete in an ice cream maker using manufacturer's instructions. This stuff is amazing because not only is it SOOO FREAKIN YUMMY, but it's also soooo much better for you! It's not super rich, and in my opinion, tastes better than anything you can buy in a store! :) Happy snacking on this one.
