Vegan Malted Maca Chocolate Ice Cream + Detox Your World Giveaway (UK)

#Vegan Malted Maca Chocolate Ice CreamToday I’m sharing another recipe from my new book, ‘Coconut Milk Ice Cream’ and giving you the chance to win the ingredients to make it yourself at home! (Ingredients kindly supplied by Detox Your World)

This recipe is my take on malt chocolate ice cream. Instead of malted milk or Horlicks powder, I use maca – a delicious superfood with a natural “malted” taste. And as with all the ice creams in my book, this one is vegan and made using coconut milk. If you like the comforting taste of malted cocoa, then you’ll love this healthy treat!

#Vegan Malted Maca Chocolate Ice CreamMaca powder comes from the Peruvian maca root and boasts a variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and every essential amino acid. Delicious added to smoothies – it gives that “milkshake” taste!

  • 720ml / 3 cups full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 20g / ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp maca powder

  2. Pour the rest of the coconut milk into a large saucepan with the cocoa powder, maca powder and maple syrup and bring to a boil, stirring all the time. As soon as the mixture begins to boil, stir in the arrowroot mixture to thicken the liquid. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla, chocolate chips and alcohol. Keep stirring until all the chocolate is melted.
  3. Chill the mixture in the fridge until cold and churn.

    I am so bad at keeping up with new trends in ingredients so I haven’t tried any maca powder yet. I had no idea what it tasted like or how to use it. I love Whoppers (like Maltesers), so anything malted milk sounds good to me!

    The ice cream looks (and sounds) amazing.

    What a great idea to use maca powder in this ice cream – that’s so interesting. This ice cream looks delicious Aimee – I wish I had a bowl of this to cool off on this hot day here :)

      Hi Katie :-) You’ll need full fat coconut milk (I’ve updated the recipe to mention that) Other milks won’t work 1:1 but if you can’t have coconut milk, I would use 2 cups of almond milk and 1 cup of dairy-free cream. Hope that helps!

    Hi Aimee
    Thanks for the great recipe. I’ve been taking maca powder on daily basis for almost 2 years now in order to boost my energies, and I love the results. But I kind of dislike the maca taste, so I’m always looking for recipes where I can add maca to mask its taste. I will love to try this yummy looking ice cream ,thanks.

    Do you think this would work without the maple syrup? And perhaps substituting with a granulated sugar or stevia?
    Thanks so much!!
