Making your own ice cream is great fun and you can enjoy a treat knowing there are no nasties in it.
My first attempt was Cashew Nut and Raspberry. It was yum!
Here’s how to make your own.
- 1 1/2 cups organic cashews, salted, frozen
- 1 cup whole organic milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon extract Stevia or Natvia
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 cup organic raspberries, frozen
Put all the cashews in the blender. Add the whole milk and blend until smooth.
Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to blend.
If you don’t like raspberry seeds, run the mixture through a sieve.
Chill mixture in the fridge for at least an hour. Overnight works best.
Put in your ice cream maker and follow manufacturers instructions or store in freezer until set.
Because this ice cream is made with nuts and a small amount of dairy, it will freeze much harder than conventional ice creams. Remove it from the freezer and allow to defrost for about 20 minutes before serving. There are no preservatives, so the ice cream will taste fresh for about 2 weeks. If it lasts that long!
