Okay, this pie does not actually contain ice cream. But, when the creamy mousse and cashew cream layers are frozen, they sure could pass for ice cream. It is rich with flavor and kind of indulgent as far as ingredients go. But, Valentine’s day is coming up, right? So why not splurge on yourself… or a loved one. This dreamy treat is full of chocolate, dates, almond flour, cashews… and there’s some tofu in there too.
The freezing process is a little time consuming, but the prep couldn’t be easier. It mainly involves using a just food processor and a spatula. The three layers frozen together sort of resemble an “ice-cream cake” in taste and texture. Yet, unlike a certain non-vegan name brand ice cream cake that I used to go crazy over- this one’s full of good stuff. So, refusing a second slice seems almost silly. :)
