Vegan Snacks: Ice Cream Edition

by Vegan Culinary Cruises Luxury – All Inclusive – All Vegan
There's nothing in this world that ice cream can't fix! Discomfort on a hot summer day, heartbreaks, and PMS cravings, to name a few. Who said vegan snacks were boring? Check out this plant-based take on one of life's greatest pleasures. 

3 cups  cashews, ½ cup (65 g) if just making enough for the ice cream (390 g)
¼ cup  water (60 mL)
1 ¼ cups  organic sugar (250 g)
4 tablespoons  cocoa butter
4 tablespoons  coconut oil
1 teaspoon  salt
1 cup  coconut milk (240 mL)
1 teaspoon  vanilla extract
1 vanilla bean

Special Equipment Needed
Ice cream maker

1.  Place the cashews in a large bowl. Add enough room-temperature water to cover the cashews. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and soak overnight.

2. Place the bowl of an ice cream machine in the freezer overnight.
Add the cashews and soaking water into a blender. Blend, starting on low pulse speed and increasing to high until smooth and frothy, about 40 seconds. Strain into a large bowl through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth.

3. Reserve 1 cup (240 ml) of cashew milk for the ice cream and store the rest in the refrigerator for up to a week for another use.

4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the water and sugar and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is clear, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the cocoa butter, coconut oil, and salt. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.

5. In a blender, combine the cashew milk and coconut milk. Blend on low speed. With the blender running, pour in the sugar mixture to emulsify. Continue until well-blended, about 2 minutes.

6. Pour the mixture into a large metal bowl and mix in the vanilla extract. Scrape in the seeds from the vanilla bean and whisk to combine.

7. Chill the base in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

8. Add the chilled base to the ice cream maker and churn for 1 hour, or as long as the machine requires, until thick and creamy.

9. Transfer the ice cream to a loaf pan and freeze overnight.
Scoop and serve immediately.

10. Enjoy!
