Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

This delicious creation comes courtesy of Quirky Cooking! I saw it on her Facebook page and it is freaking amazeballs! It is dairy free, gluten free, sugar free, vegan, raw, vegetarian, paleo…. Based on all of that, it really should be “taste-free” but, it’s not, it is a taste sensation, a mouth party, a totally splendid food experience. Convinced yet? I altered the recipe a bit (of course I did) and you can probably alter it some more if you wish. I think some great additions would be – raw cacao, cacao nibs, frozen berries, fresh dates, peppermint essence, instant coffee, obviously not all together, that would be disgusting & this my friends, is NOT disgusting. Hot tip, you will need a really good food processor (small size bowl would be best) or a high speed blender like a Vitamix etc, I have only done this in my thermomix, it might take a bit of ‘bowl scraping’ in anything else. Go forth & blend my pretties.

200g raw cashews
200g ice
1/2 tsp vanilla powder (you can use vanilla beans, vanilla paste or extract)
1 tsp lucuma powder (optional)
Dash stevia (or 1 fresh date or 1 tbs pure maple syrup)

In the high speed blender/processor add cashews & process until the become a flour-like consistency. Add everything else & process until it looks like ice cream. Finished. Done. You can eat now. This serves 2. Or just me. Don’t judge.
