Dairy-Free Vanilla Cashew Ice Cream with Date Cocoa Swirl

EQUIPMENT

High-speed blender

4-cup measuring cup

Ice cream maker

Spatula

Glass baking dish

Chef’s knife

Cutting board

 

Makes 6 servings

Active time: 45 minutes

Total time: 120 minutes

 

FOR THE ICE CREAM

2 cups (226g) raw cashews, soaked in water overnight to soften

3/4 cup (177mL) coconut milk

1 1/2 cups (354mL) nondairy milk of choice

1/3 cup (88mL) honey, or sweetener of your choice

1 vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise and the seeds scraped out, or 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Pinch of sea salt

 

FOR THE DATE COCOA SWIRL

2 tablespoons (40g) almond butter

1/2 cup (70g) dates, pitted and soaked in water to soften

1/4 cup (21g) unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon (2.5mL) tamari, low sodium

3 tablespoons (44mL) dark rum, or 1 teaspoon rum extract (optional)

Water to blend

 

In a high-speed blender, blend the soaked cashews, coconut milk, nondairy milk, sweetener, vanilla bean pulp and salt until completely smooth. Pour mixture into a container and refrigerate for at least an hour, to cool completely.

Remove cashew mixture from the refrigerator and following manufacturer’s instructions to process ice cream.

For the swirl, blend the almond butter, dates, cocoa, tamari, optional rum and water in a blender until a thick syrup forms. Set aside.

Once the ice cream is completely processed, scoop the still soft ice cream into a flat baking dish, drizzle around ½ a cup of the syrup over, and gently swirl in. Be sure that it is only gently folded to avoid being fully mixed. Place in the freezer until completely firm and you’re ready to serve, at least 30 minutes.

After about 30 minutes, remove from the freezer and serve with extra date cocoa syrup for drizzling.
