Raw Vanilla Chip Ice Cream



I concocted my own recipe yesterday for some delicious vanilla ice cream. I threw together common Raw ice cream ingredients and it turned out fabulous! Try it, you'll like it : )

Ingredients:

1 cup raw cashews, soaked for 8 hrs. and drained
1 cup Thai young coconut meat
1-1/2 cups almond milk or 4 oz. coconut water and 8 oz. almond milk
1/2 cup agave
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2-3 Tbsp. cacao nibs ( you can leave these out if you want just plain vanilla)

Blend all except cacao nibs in VitaMix or blender until smooth. Add cacao nibs and pulse to blend. Add mixture to ice cream maker and process until firm. (if it makes it that long;)
