My Raw Coconut-Cashew Ice Cream

Here’s an easy nut and coconut meat based raw ice cream recipe. This recipe is rich and creamy, and full of sweet flavor! Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:
2 cups cashews (soaked for 4 or more hours)
2 cups young Thai coconut meat
1 T Vanilla Extract (organic, alcohol free)
1 vanilla bean broken down into powder
dash sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
3/4 to 1 cup raw agave nectar
extra water up to 1/2 cup or more as needed

Preparation:
Blend all ingredients except the cashews. Blend until very creamy. Add cashews and water (gradually) until all is well mixed and super smooth. Place in air tight container in freezer for one hour. Remove and stir up in food processor and place back in container and freeze; or use an ice cream maker (if you have one) and follow the directions. Serve ice cream with your favorite toppings and garnish.

Serving suggestions:
Serve with chocolate sauce and sliced bananas. Yum-yum!
