Hello, my dears! I’m super pleased that my Watermelon Popsicles have received so much summer love from all of you. The weather in Hamburg isn’t exactly that summery at the moment – it’s raining a lot and the temperatures have dropped right into the basement – but things should be warming up again in the next few days or so. 

But no matter the weather, it’s always a good time for ice cream! So I’ve got yet another frozen treat recipe for you today. :-)

Many of you are already familiar with my Creamy Salted Caramel Cashew Ice Cream Bar in a Chocolate Shell, which I posted on the blog last year. I originally discovered the recipe on The Tasty K, where blogger Kirsten posted a video of the creation of her Vegan Magnum (it’s since been viewed millions of times). I’ve modified it a bit and adapted it to my own tastes.

During my retreat in Stanglwirt, Austria back in May, we all made these ice cream bars together – and they were a total hit! I love these bars: I always make a fresh batch whenever they’ve all been eaten up so that there’s always some in stock! :-)

 

 

The version I’m sharing today is based on a combination of the Classic Almond Magnum and the Raspberry Magnum (but homemade, of course). The bars are vegan and sweetened only wutg raspberries, dates, and some coconut blossom syrup. The cashew milk and cashew butter also impart some sweetness, as do the almonds. You can put the almonds on the outside of the chocolate shell, as in the photo above, or mix them in with the shell itself (as described in the recipe directions and pictured in the photos below).

Here’s the recipe:
