Raw German Chocolate Blizzard

Last week my Mom, my boyfriend Eric and I were discussing what our favorite blizzards used to be.  Mine and Eric's were pretty common ones, but my Mom was talking about enjoying one with walnuts, chocolate and coconut.  She couldn't remember what it was called, but I decided that it sounded to me like German Chocolate.  Then I decided that it would be really good rawified, so I whipped some up for all of us.

I used a banana based ice cream for the blizzard, since I was too impatient to wait for a churned ice cream, and added in some of my favorite superfoods, raw cacao powder, maca and lucuma along with raw walnut butter to make it a bit silky.  It tasted enough like chocolate cake batter...like the type that is impossible to stop tasting.  I mixed in raw cacao nibs instead of chocolate chunks (because it was sweet enough), some raw walnuts and coconut.  It was fantabulous!  My Mom who never eats ice cream anymore, wanted a small cup of it and loved it!  Trust me, you need this deliciousness in your life!

Ice Cream:
6 large bananas, frozen and cut into pieces
1/4 cup raw coconut milk (depending on how liquidy you like it, I like mine thick so I add less)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp raw walnut butter
stevia to taste (or your choice liquid raw sweetener)
1/3 cup raw cacao powder

1/3 cup raw walnuts, plus more for topping
1/3 cup large flake coconut, plus more for topping
1/3 cup raw cacao nibs, plus more for topping

For the ice cream, banana, milk, maca, lucuma, vanilla, walnut butter, stevia and cacao powder in a blender and blend until smooth, using the tamper to press the mixture into the blades. Stir in the 1/3 cup walnuts, coconut and cacao nibs.  Pour into glasses and top off with more walnuts, coconut and cacao nibs.  Serve!
