Method

1) First, put the cashews into a heat proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to soften for around an hour before draining. This can also be done in cold water up to 24 hours ahead of using
2) Next, put the drained cashews, along with the coconut milk, maple syrup and milk, into a blender cup
3) Break the Go Nuts™ bars into pieces and add to the blender cup then blitz everything together until smooth and creamy
4) Pour the mix into ice lolly moulds and freeze - we recommend leaving them overnight to ensure they're fully set
5) Before taking the lollies out of the moulds, melt the chocolate (either in a microwave or over a bain-marie) and chop up a few of the Go Nuts™ bars into fairly small pieces and put into a bowl
7) To remove the ice cream from the moulds, run each one under the tap for a few seconds until you can pull them out
8) Dip each one into the melted chocolate, using a spoon to pour/drizzle it over the end of the lolly then sprinkle over a pinch of the chopped protein bars
9) Store in the freezer and enjoy!
