Raw Ice Cream

This is a dish of the most amazingly delicious Raw Ice Cream, which we served last week at Rawlicious, Maple Vanilla. Angus makes incredible ice cream!!!

Yes, Raw ice cream is not only as rich and decadent as its conventional dairy counterpart - it's actually good for you!! ..and it's fun and easy to make.

I just bought an ice cream maker for my friends birthday today and we are going to make ice cream tonight. It makes 1.5 litres - it's small and compact, so the cannister, which needs to be frozen to use, does not take up too much room in the freezer ..and just stay there so it is ready for whenever the ice cream urge arises. Nice.

We have some young coconuts and some cashews soaking right now while the container is getting frozen in the freezer. It'll be ready by tonight. We have vanilla beans but extract can be used also.. and for the sweetener I am thinking agave and some maple syrup but I bought dates also so we can keep it 100% raw.. I'll decide that last minute.

I also have a book that a new co-worked at Rawlicious had and brought in - Vice Cream by Jeff Rogers which has over 70 dairy-free recipes - and 1/2 of these are totally raw! Yes!!!

Espresso, Peanut Butter, Mocha, Almond, Strawberry, Apple Cinnamon, Peach Nectar, Lemon, Banana, Black Forest, Carrot Cake, Peppermint, Gingersnap, Pumpkin, Jalapeno Heaven, Pina Colada, Strawberry Rhubarb, Kiwi Mandarin, Nectarine, Melon Mania, Concord Grape, Apple Strudel, Blueberry Peach, Vanilla Hazelnut, Maple Walnut, Banana Cherry, Coconut Durian, Fig, Mango, Pecan Pie, Chai, Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, Chocoholic Delight.. etc etc..

But we are making Vanilla - of all the flavours, we both love vanilla the best!

thanks aubergine! Hugs!!
Hi Mom,
I made this batch with young coconuts and cashews but it is not necessary. You can also make it with almond milk or other nut milk or even with coconut milk made from mature coconuts. I can send you other recipes if you like ..let me know!
xo, Love! R
