I never thought that making ice cream would be so easy, but this Vegan Cashew Ice Cream took me by surprise and a very good one.
Do you need an ice-cream maker to make ice-cream?
I soaked some cashew nuts into a bowl of cold water the night before. The next day I drained and blended the cashew nuts in my food processor with some dairy-free milk, maple syrup, vanilla and coconut cream for added creaminess.
I left the preparation in the freezer for less than 3 hours and when the ice-cream started to freeze, I stir it with a fork to prevent the ice cream from freezing into a big block.
Et voila, under 3 hours I was able to enjoy 2 or 3 scoops of this exquisite ice cream, on top of which I added a spoonful of my favourite peanut butter from ManiLife and the sweet strawberry marmalade from my dad.
Here are some other topping ideas you may like:
- chocolate sauce and some hazelnuts
- almond butter and some orange zest
- vegan whipped cream with fresh strawberries
- vegan caramel sauce and a sprinkle of sea salt
Such a beautiful treat to enjoy on a lovely Sunday afternoon.

I love the addition of the coconut cream in this recipe, it brings some natural sweetness to the recipe.
