Makes about 2 pints
This sounds wacky, but it is really delicious-and easy to overeat lol. You may need to add more peppermint extract, depending on how minty you want it. And when you freeze the leftovers (if there is any) it really turns out like real, scoopable ice cream. If it’s too hard, just defrost it in the microwave for a few seconds, but be careful not to melt it. Kids wont even know that this is raw, it’s so creamy! SOmething with the strawberry-mint combination, because vanilla ice cream just ndoesn’t taste like this. I wish I had a picture….... anyone can post one if they make this. Enjoy!
2 cup truly raw cashews, soaked overnight
1 cup Thick Thai young coconut meat
5 tablespoon maple syrup or raw agave nectar
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
¾ cup really frozen strawberries
First, blend the soaked cashews in a Vita-mix. You may need to add a LITTLE water just to get it creamy. Once that’s completely smooth with no chunks, add coconut meat, and then the rest of the ingredients. You should have a totally smooth, creamy, light strawberry, minty cream.Freeze all the cream for 20 minutes, then process through a ice cream maker. Scoop that stuff out, freeze for another 20 minutes, scoop out, and eat!
