Raw ice-cream: Doesn't sound particularly attractive does it?... But really, it's just words. Let's forget the “raw” word for a moment and concentrate on taste - and only taste. Yes, raw vegan ice-cream may be super-healthy too, but let's face it, have we ever chosen ice-cream for health reasons?!
So, just for a moment, let's talk TASTE and indulge honestly and openly in all things cool, creamy and comforting.
I've been an ice-cream lover since, well, birth really. Strawberry was my childhood favourite, although I was passionate about Neapolitan for a while there. Then came the strawberry Cornetto (and occasionally tutti frutti) as my tastes got a little more sophisticated, and then, as adulthood drew nearer still, the almighty Feast became the ice-cream to be seen with! Chocolate upon chocolate upon chocolate, a chilling chewy creamy caresser-of-taste-buds on a stick - oh, during my teenage summers I thought heaven resided in a newsagent's chiller cabinet! Hmm.
Well, obviously life has moved on just a little... And little did I know then but later in life I was to discover the deliciously decadent and hedonistically heavenly raw chocolate ice-cream that I now indulge in on a just-as-regular basis, every season of the year - with zero guilt and zero post-ice-cream-sickness-syndrome. Now that's what I call a RESULT!
And it's really all thanks to my new best friend, the ice-cream maker and four simple yet profound ingredients that co-create what is the best chocolate ice-cream I have ever tasted...
