Creamy banana ice cream dipped in a rich, extra-thick chocolatey coating topped with peanuts
all in a firm but chewy “sugar ice cream cone.”
This is an Ice Cream Cone Sundae that you can enjoy any day of the week! This is a first of many new creations that I have in store for you. This dessert is dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, corn-free, lactose-free, grain-free, sugar-free, dye-free, artificial flavor-free, processed-free, have I missed any others? If you are a raw foodist, you can eat it. If you are vegan, you can eat it. If you are vegetarian, you can eat it. If you love Ding Dongs, you can eat it…. If you are a foodie and love ice cream desserts… you can eat it!! Shew, I think I got myself covered here.
Throughout my growing up years I remember going to the grocery store with my mom. I really don’t recall if I was one of those kids who constantly asked for everything in sight (mom, you can chime in about that) but I do remember drooling over the ice cream cone cooler that used to be near the check-out lanes. You know, the ones that look like a chest freezer with glass sliding windows on top? I would lean over it, laying half my body on the top of it, cupping my hands around my eyes and peering into the deep cooler, spying the drumsticks. Oh yum. I didn’t have them often but it wasn’t due to a lack of begging. (no need to comment on this part mom).
I looked up the ingredient list in one of the Nestle Drumstick cones… scary…

You decide…Nestle? Nouveau Raw? Nestle? Nouveau Raw? Nestle? Nouveau Raw?…. if you selected the Nouveau Raw version, congratulations you’re a winner. Here is the recipe. :) Enjoy!
Yields 9 / 6″ cones
I sprinkled some raw coconut crystals on top of the wet batter, giving it that brown sugar cone hit.
I had put the ice cream cones in the freezer in a Zip-lock bag for a few days, but only because I didn’t have time to deal with them once they came out of the dehydrator. They froze perfectly, good to know.
Here is the pureed frozen bananas in a Zip-lock bag ready to pipe into the cones. Worked great.
Can you see the raspberry in the bottom of the cone? I did this to prevent the ice cream from leaking out of the bottom. You could use dried fruit as well.
They are ready to eat as is but I put mine in the freezer at this point so they would harden for the next step.
Dipped the frozen ice cream cone in chocolate…
I made sure to get a chocolaty coating on the edge of the cone as well…
Next, I dipped it in a bowl of chopped nuts making sure to cover all the areas that I got chocolate on. You can use any nut, shredded coconut, hemp seeds, you name it, for this step.
End result! Sorry that the photo is a bit blurry. I am a lefty, trying to operate my iPhone camera with my right hand… its challenging! haha
