Vegan chocolate chip vanilla ice cream bars with a chewy chocolate base. Perfect grab-and-go snack! Refined sugar-free.



  • ½ cup raw cashews (or another nut)
  • 2 soft medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp raw ground vanilla bean (or 1 tsp pure vanilla extract)


  • ½ cup raw cashews, pre-soaked and strained
  • 2 ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp raw ground vanilla bean
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp chocolate chips (or chopped raw chocolate bar)


  1. Process all crust ingredients in a food processor into a sticky crumbly mixture. Transfer into a small parchment-lined tupperware container (I used one that’s 3″ x 5.5″) or a 4″ springform pan and press down into a flat even crust. Freeze while working on the next layer.
  2. Make sure all filling ingredients are at room temp. Blend everything, except chocolate chips, in a high power blender into a smooth uniform consistency. Stir in 3 tbsp of the chocolate chips and then scoop the mixture over the prepared crust. Tap the container on the counter lightly to flatten, then sprinkle with the remaining 1 tbsp chocolate chips. Freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight. Remove from container, trim off the edges (if desired), slice and enjoy! Keep leftovers frozen.
