This is my favorite ice cream. It’s vegan. It’s vanilla. And it’s yummy.
I’ve been making this ice cream for the last couple of years. Way back when in my New York days, my raw food friends turned me on to the fact that cashews make an amazing substitute for dairy. While I love this ice cream and have been known to chow on it late night, be forewarned that my husband (who is my ultimate taste tester) does not like it.
1 cup (raw) cashews
2 cups water
¼ cup agave nectar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 pinch celtic sea salt
- In a vitamix, combine all ingredients and blend on high speed
- Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to instructions
What I like best about this Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream is how simple the ingredients list is and how easy it is to make. We’re going to have it with some of the other Memorial Day desserts that I made.
UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed and the winner was Gabrielle.
While I know many warnings have been posted about her and the book, and while I am not a regular watcher of her show “The View,” I do want to say that she has performed an incredible service to the celiac community by using her celebrity to promote awareness of a vicious disease that is for the most part left undetected in individuals who suffer for decades without diagnosis.
Perhaps the book is not perfect, however, in my skimming through it, I saw a lot of good. Leave a comment and you’ll be entered into the drawing.
