Homemade vegan ice cream...and great coffee flavor no less. It's delicious and creamy!
Vegan Coffee Coconut Milk Ice Cream
(made in ice cream maker)
Day before do the following: Refrigerate 1 can of Coconut milk (full fat, not light!) overnight
Soak 1/2 cup of cashews in filtered water for 4 hours or overnight
Into you high speed blender add:
1 can of coconut milk that was refrigerated overnight
1/2 cup of cashews (see above)
1/3 cup of cold coffee or cold espresso
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
Blend for 2 minutes in your high speed blender until completely blended and smooth.
Pour into ice cream maker. I use a cuisinart so 30 minutes in the ice cream maker worked great. Put into a container and store in the freezer.
Substitutions for other flavors:
- You could also sub the coffee for 1/3 cup of raw cacao powder and make chocolate ice cream
- You could add frozen strawberries or other frozen fruit
