Description

This quick and easy cashew based vegan ice cream is the perfect combination of mint and chocolate chips!


Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw cashews (not roasted cashews!, soaked for at least 4 hours and drained)
  • 4 cups almond milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons peppermint extract
  • 1 handful spinach (1/3 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Before you start, make sure to chill your ice cream bowl from the ice cream maker for at least 12-24 hours. I forgot to do this the first time I tried to churn the ice cream and it just didn’t firm up right!
  2. In a high powered blender, blend together all of the ingredients, except for the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips. Blend the mixture until it is smooth and creamy, making sure the cashew pieces are blended thoroughly. Pour the ice cream mixture and chopped chocolate into the prepared ice cream maker and prepare according to the ice cream maker’s instructions. Mine took about 20-25 minutes to firm up and get super creamy, but it may depend on your machine. Transfer ice cream to a container and freeze for at least 2 hours, allowing the ice cream to firm up a bit more.
