Mocha Ice Cream

At long last, Mocha is the lastest addition to my family of ice cream flavors.

Sweetened only with dates and flavored with cocoa powder and shots of espresso, it’s made with the purest of ingredients, and oh so good.

Hope you like it too.


  • Servings: makes about 1 quart
  • Print

1 cup prepared espresso (about 5 shots) or very strong coffee
1 cup water
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 cup dates, pits removed
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt


Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender (like a Vitamix) and process until mixture is smooth and combined well.

Carefully pour mixture into the bowl of an automatic ice cream maker, and process according to manufacturer’s instructions until desired texture is achieved. Enjoy immediately, or harden further in freezer for an hour or more.
