Vegan vanilla ice cream

I love ice cream, specially in the summer. When craving for something sweet and cold, homemade ice cream is a real delight.

By making your own ice cream, you can determine exactly what goes into it, choosing healthy ingredients.

This raw ice cream is 100% dairy free, made with vanilla beans, cashews and natural sweetener.

“Maple syrup is a great source of manganese, and contains calcium, potassium and zinc. Rich in antioxidants, this all-natural sweetener may help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative damage. Select the darker Grade B maple syrups that contain more of beneficial antioxidants than the lighter syrups.” according to Dr Oz.
