Cashew Ice Cream

Prep: 15 minutes Chill: 6-8 hours

Serves:4

This dessert is made with RAW cashews blended with water. This needs to be made in an ice cream freezer.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Directions

Place the cashews, water and honey in a food processor or blender and process until very smooth. This may take a couple of minutes. Add vanilla and mix. Pour into a bowl, cover and freeze for about 1 hour. Pour into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions for freezing.

Variations: To make a chocolate version, use 1/2 cup of fat-free cocoa powder. Add with the vanilla and process until well blended. To make this with other sweeteners, try 1 cup of maple syrup in place of the honey, or make a sugar syrup by dissolving 1 cup of sugar in 2 1/2 cups of water. Allow to cool completely and use in place of the 2 cups of water and honey in the recipe above.
