Smart Sweet: Vegan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Vegan ice cream is music to my ears, and it’s super easy, delicious and a great chocolate fix! This is my favourite dairy free chocolate recipe. I used organic brown rice malt syrup in this recipe because rice syrup has a lower sugar content than honey or maple syrup so it doesn’t make it overly sweet and has a very mild flavour but maple syrup and honey will also work nicely. If you miss chocolate ice cream at all you won’t miss it anymore.
