Decadent Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream

[ 3 ] May 28, 2012 |

Vegan Strawberry ice Cream

Who knew it was possible to create delicious frozen desserts without the milk and the cream?  Few years ago, when I started making some  raw food recipes for one of my clients, there were’t many options for nondairy frozen treats, available in health food stores.

Using a raw nut cream in the same way ice cream uses dairy cream gives a rich, flavorful vegan ice cream that would easily satisfy any expectations.

Organic cashews is the base for my vegan ice cream. You can flavor your ice cream with your favorite berries.

I use my High Performance blender Vitamix 1782 TurboBlend, 2 Speed.

I use an ice cream maker,Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker, White.

If you don’t have one, you can instead place your ice cream into a bowl. Place it into the freezer and stir frequently until frozen.

Defrost for 10 minutes before eating.

  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 cups organic cashews or cashew pieces, soaked for 2 hours.
  • 2 cups purified water
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup or according to your taste
  • 1 cup packed hulled organic strawberries
  1. Cut the vanilla bean into small pieces. Grind to a fine powder in a clean coffee grinder.
  2. Combine the ground vanilla, cashews, water, syrup and strawberries in a blender. Blend on high speed until silky and smooth at least 1 minute.
  3. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Transfer to airtight containers and store in the freezer until ready to serve.

    Love this recipe! I’ve made vegan ice cream before but just using coconut milk and I found that it got too icy/frozen after a night in the freezer. Am very excited to try making ice cream with cashews!
