Recipe for nice cream :

Directions:

Add all ingredients to blender or food processor except for the cacao powder. I add in a bit of non dairy milk at a time to blend to a creamy consistency. Once combined take out 1/2 of the mixture and add to a glass. With the rest of the nice cream add in the cacao and blend to combine. Top the rest of the nice cream with the chocolate half.
