Paleo Almond-Cacao Sundae [Dairy free]

Guilt-free indulgence that not only looks AMAZING but tastes an absolute treat too. Paleo friendly, dairy free and a must try treat for the kids (and you!)

It’s been a while since I found myself craving something utterly decadent. Today, after making some almond milk, I decided to indulge a bit and with some leftover chia-mac ice cream needing to be used up, a sundae seemed just the thing. 

Paleo almond-cacao sundae

There was a bag of raw cacao paste in my cupboard that I had no idea what to do with – it was purchased on a whim and as with most of what I do, I thought I’d figure it out as I go along! So, with cacao on hand, and homemade almond milk ready to be used, plus some homemade Paleo ice cream, I pretty much had all the ingredients I needed to make something super yummy. I also had some prepped date paste in the fridge from a few days ago so it seemed that I was good to go. 

This is absolutely a treat and as such wouldn’t be something to indulge in everyday!
