Prep time: 45 min + 10 hrs chill time
Vanilla Coconut Cream Frosting:
- 3/4 cup cultured coconut milk
- 4 tablespoons coconut whipped cream
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
Carrot Cake Ice Cream:
- 3 scoops Warrior Blend vanilla protein
- 3 scoops Warrior Blend natural protein
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 3/4 cup coconut juice
- 1 and 1/2 cups shredded carrots
- 3 tablespoons shredded coconut
- 3 pieces soaked medjool dates
- 1 tablespoon carrot powder
- 1/4 tablespoon ground vanilla bean
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger spice
- 1/4 teaspoon orange extract
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup walnuts
Carrot Cake Crust Topping:
- 1/3 cup granola
- 1/4 cup gluten-free oat flakes
- 2 tablespoons coconut flakes
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds
Vanilla Coconut Cream Frosting:
- Put all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until nice and smooth. Set bowl aside.
Carrot Cake Ice-Cream:
- Put all ingredients, except half of the walnuts in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Add all but a couple pieces of walnuts and pulse a couple times to have some chunky nuts in there. The extra pieces will top the treat at the end. Of course, if you would prefer a smoother consistency, incorporate all of the walnut ingredients in the initial blend.
Carrot Cake Crust Toppings:
- In another bowl, combine granola, oat flakes, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and flax seeds and mix to incorporate.
- Take out ice cream bar molds and divvy up carrot cake ice cream and vanilla coconut cream in layers.
- Complete layers as you would a multi-layer cake or parfait, and then top with carrot cake crust topping for effect.
- Place ice cream molds into the freezer to freeze over night.
- Take out the next day and enjoy as a snack or high protein dessert.
