Jess: I’m excited.
Courtney: We’re doing that for Sam today.
Jess: Thanks Sam.
Courtney: Yeah, thanks Sam. And this chocolate avocado ice cream is delicious. Okay, so it’s so easy to make vegan, raw vegan ice cream with frozen bananas, throw in some cacao, it’s good. This is next level. This is deep, dark rich chocolate. You’ll never be able to tell this is vegan or a banana. I mean, it… this is when you’re not messing around.
Jess: I’m jazzed for it.
Courtney: Yes, yes. So, you’re going to…
Jess: Ice-cream is like my weakness.
Courtney: You’re really going to enjoy this. And you know, do you know how Reese enjoys her ice cream? Witherspoon. Duh Jess, hello? Ha. So, anyway, we’re going to make this delicious ice cream for you today and you’re going to love, your favorite part is going to be opening this coconut. You’re going to be able to get all your frustrations from the entire world out on this coconut.
Jess: Is this it?
Courtney: Yes, that’s it. Yes.
Jess: I can’t wait.
Courtney: So, we’re going to just… All you have to do is just put all the ingredients in the blender and blend it up, and this is going to be the hardest thing we do is open this coconut, but with our handy tools here, it’s not going to be that hard. So, we’re just going to put some dates and these dates I did soak, so they’d be easier…
Courtney: On the Vitamix. We’re just going to put these dates in here and then some cacao powder, we’ve got one cup of cacao powder.
Jess: Measure that. It’s one cup.
Courtney: Yes, it is one cup. It looks like much more, but it’s not. And cacao powder is great, it’s just full of vitamin B6 and folate…
Courtney: Whatever folate is, it’s full of it. People really like the folate.
Jess: Folate is good for you.
Courtney: And then we’ve got a whole avocado.
Jess: Those have a lot of folate too.
Courtney: Yeah. Avocados…
Jess: A ton!
Courtney: Are delicious.
Jess: So if you don’t like dark green, leafy vegetables, get an avocado.
Courtney: Avocados are just nature’s miracle. I went to Mexico one time and stayed at an all-inclusive resort that there was a guy making guacamole the entire time. I ate nothing but guacamole and chips for seven days.
Jess: When in Mexico.
Courtney: Yeah, when in Mexico.
Jess: I would have too.
Courtney: So, then we got some cashews which I just soaked overnight. And I’m going to strain those off with my very clean hand, of course. Just drop those in here and then I’m going to let you get to opening this coconut.
Jess: Oh, it’s my turn?
Courtney: So, you’re just going to put this on here.
Jess: Alright, I’ve never done this before.
Courtney: And just think of everything that frustrates you.
Jess: And just bang it out. I got this.
Courtney: Get it girl. This is your moment. Tell them Jess.
Jess: This is really hard.
Courtney: Tell them!
Jess: Should I tell them what I’m frustrated about? Am I breaking it?
Courtney: Get it out! Give it a little bit more. You’re in luck. Oh, see you want to turn it to get that..
Jess: Okay, I didn’t know to turn it.
Courtney: Get that.
Jess: Alright. We got this. This is really like… is this specifically for this?
Courtney: It is.
Jess: This is what this tool is for?
Jess: Okay how about that?
Courtney: Sure. It’s takes me like 2,500 times.
Jess: Courtney I’m a beast.
Courtney: I mean…
Jess: I’m a beast.
Courtney: You were frustrated…
Jess: Is this water?
Courtney: Look at this.
Jess: This is real coconut water.
Courtney: Now this is how you safely and easily open up a coconut my friend.
Jess: This literally how they make coconut water? They just…
Courtney: That’s it, that’s it.
Jess: That’s a lot of work to make one jar of coconut water.
Courtney: Then we’ve got our little scraper tool, go around here. Give it a try.
Courtney: What do you think of it?
Jess: Oh my gosh.
Courtney: There’s nothing better than that. You don’t even want regular coconut water ever again.
Jess: Not ever. I don’t ever want to buy, like…
Courtney: They put a lot of sugar usually in coconut water.
Jess: This is delicious.
Courtney: Does that need any sugar at all? No. Perfect.
Jess: It’s so good.
Courtney: Perfect. So, I got this whole toolset and you can get it from courtneyuncooked.com, that just easily, you know, makes you a hero and then you just get the meat right out. I mean, it cannot be simpler. So, let’s get a little bit more don’t want anything to go to waste, you know, coconut…
Jess: So, is that what they make the shaved things out of? That part?
Courtney: Yes, that’s the meat, so that’s it.
Jess: It’s not very much in one…
Courtney: And some water. Definitely need some water. You know what else I should have probably done is used the date water, but I threw it out. But so we’ve got some water. This is it. Blend it up. You got to blend this a lot. Because you want it a nice creamy consistency.
Jess: I’m so impressed with how dark it is.
Jess: I did not think that it would look so good.
Courtney: You never want to under blend this. Give it a licksy.
Jess: Yeah, yeah. Oh yeah. Okay. Sam Kern…
Courtney: That’s what I’m saying. Sam.
Courtney: Look at that.
Jess: So good. It’s like chocolate whipped cream.
Jess: That like, no like chocolate mousse, but better.
Courtney: Yeah. So, it could be like a pudding or a mousse, or…
Jess: If you freeze that.
Courtney: You’re going to freeze it for an hour. This is just straight-up vegan power right here.
Jess: Straight up.
Courtney: So that’s it. You want to give a…
Courtney: A go?
Courtney: Good job friend.
Jess: Am I doing good? How’s this presentation, Courtney?
Courtney: It is good.
Jess: You do not want to waste this.
Courtney: Piece of coconut on the side.
Courtney: Little accent on the top, put that on the side.
Jess: That’s so cute!
Courtney: All right. Let’s give it a go. Now, just imagine it’s frozen for an hour.
Jess: Alright, cheers.
Courtney: To health and wealth.
Courtney: Making chocolate ice cream with my girl Jess. This stuff is delicious, it’s really the best. I got the recipe from my boy Sam Kern, it’s so easy to make no need to churn.
