1To make the ice cream : Combine the cashews, coconut milk, maple syrup, arrowroot, oil, vanilla powder, vanilla extract, and salt in a blender and blend until completely smooth.

2Refrigerate until completely chilled, about 2 hours.

3Process in your ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

4When the ice cream reaches the consistency of a thick soft-serve, transfer to a glass or metal bowl.

5Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the ice cream to prevent contact with air (thus reducing freezer burn), then cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

6Freeze the ice cream for at least 3 or 4 hours before serving.

7You may need to let the ice cream soften for about 5 minutes before serving.

8To make the hot fudge : Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl on top of a pan of boiling water, stirring frequently, until completely smooth.

9While the chocolate is melting, whisk together the coconut milk, cocoa powder, sugar, coconut oil, arrow-root, and salt in a medium bowl.

10Slowly whisk the milk mixture into the melted chocolate and stir until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

11Remove from the heat.

12If you make this in advance, once it has cooled, you can refrigerate the sauce in an airtight container. It will get very thick, so you will have to reheat it before serving.

13Prepare all of the toppings you plan on serving. To assemble, scoop as much ice cream as desired into a bowl, drizzle hot fudge all over it, and top with all the preferred toppings.
