Chocolate Chunky Monkey Ice Cream

Made from a base of macadamia nuts and frozen bananas, this has to be the creamiest nice cream around. Fold in a selection of your favourite Loving Earth chocolates and you've got yourself one seriously good Chunky Monkey Ice Cream! And it couldn't be any easier to make, with the most arduous step cleaning your blender. 

Aside from the can't-get-enough taste of this delicious nice cream, we adore the nutrients hidden inside. Macadamia nuts are full of good fats and protein, with gut-friendly fibre and a host of vitamins and minerals thrown in, bananas are a fantastic source of energy-giving carbohydrates and fibre, while raw cacao nibs are choc-full of antioxidants and minerals like iron, magnesium, and manganese. 




  • 2 cups raw macadamias
  • 3 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted 
  • ½ tps Vanilla Bean Powder
  • pinch of sea salt



  1. Soak the macadamias in filtered water for 4 hours. Drain and rinse.
  2. Combine the drained macadamias and coconut cream in a blender and blend on high speed until you have a completely smooth cream.
  3. Add the frozen banana chunks, sea salt, coconut oil, and vanilla beans. Blend the mixture until smooth.
  4. Chop and fold in your Loving Earth mix in’s!
  5. Scrape the ice cream mixture out into a lined cake tin. Drizzle some maple syrup on top once in the pan for a caramel ripple. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
