Chocolate Ice Cream Bites

This was given to me as a recipe for Bliss Balls, to be chilled. As you can see from the video below, I freeze these because that taste reminds me of ice cream and is more chocolatey melting in my mouth. So try both versions.

Below the 2 recipe videos is a video of me describing what happened when I tested this out on my kids, and there is a useful discussion about The Replacement Kick. Enjoy!


1 cup ground almonds

Half a cup of sultanas

Half a cup of dessicated coconut

Half to 1 cup of coconut milk

2 heaped dessertspoons cocoa


Quarter cup of milled flaxseeds (In the video I recommend these, but you do get the same nutrients in the other ingredients, so if you are on a budget, you can miss these out)

A couple of drops of orange essence or flavouring

A bar of sugar free chocolate sweetened with maltitol, stevia or xylitol


Put the almonds, dried fruit, dessicated coconut, flax seeds and cocoa in a blender and blend.


Add the orange flavour to the coconut milk (if desired) and add the milk to the rest of the ingredients until the mixture is like a heavy dough


Make into balls and freeze for 2 and a half hours



Melt some of the sugar free chocolate and dip the frozen balls in, then replace in the freezer.



And here they are dipped in chocolate
