  • 1/2 Cup Dairy-free dark chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3/4 Cup Natural Almond Butter, divided* (use a kind that you don't have to stir)
  • 4 1/2 Tbsp Nature Nate's Raw & Unfiltered Honey, divided
  • 1 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Crispy Rice Cereal
  • 1 Can Coconut cream (13.5 oz)


  • Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang over the sides to use as a handle.
  • Place the chocolate chips and almond milk in a large, microwave-safe bowl and microwave on half power using 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until smooth and melted.
  • Add in 2 Tbsp of almond butter and 1 1/2 Tbsp of the honey, reserving the rest for later, and still until well mixed. The chocolate will thicken up, that's fine.  Stir in the crispy rice cereal until well mixed.
  • Firmly press the crust into the bottom of the prepared pan. You will crack the cereal - again, totally fine!
  • In a large bowl using an electric hand mixer, beat together the coconut cream (don't use the liquid from the can), 4 Tbsp of the almond butter and the remaining 3 Tbsp of honey until well combined. Spread over the crust.
  • Melt the remaining 6 Tbsp of almond butter in the microwave. Drizzle in evenly spaced lines across the top of the coconut cream. Drag a sharp knife through the lines to create the swirl on top.
  • Cover with tinfoil and freeze until firm, about 2-3 hours to overnight.
  • Remove from the pan using the parchment handles and let sit until thawed and slightly soft. How long you let them freeze will dictate how quickly they thaw.
  • Slice and DEVOUR!


*For the topping you will melt 6 Tbsp Almond Butter, but you will only end up using 5, which is reflected in the nutritional info. It's just easier to have a little extra for swirling.
