Carob Creamsicles

2 1/2 cups raw cashew pieces*
1/2 cup carob powder
2/3 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup water
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 coconut oil

Place all ingredients in your high-speed blender (we use a Vitamix).  Puree until the texture is smooth and creamy.

Pour into lined mini muffin tins and freeze.  They are rich and delicious and everyone tells me they take like a creamsicle!


* raw cashew pieces are much cheaper than whole cashews - try to purchase in bulk at your local bulk food store
