Sweet Potato Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

The calendar says it's fall. A lovely season of the year. However, it's still warm here in Saudi Arabia, as I am sure it's the case in other places in the world. Therefore, this no-bake cake is perfect!

The sweet potatoes give it this autumn cozy feeling along with a hint of cinnamon. The cacao gives it this kick you need sometimes after dinner. Lastly, it'll cool you down and remind you of birthday ice cream cakes, adult style. 


My favorite thing about this recipe is that you can use leftover coconut pulp from making homemade coconut milk (something you should all be doing since it's super easy). 

Hope you enjoy it x
