What's great about it

This recipe is the perfect healthy summer treat that you can enjoy without the guilt. This creamy, dreamy gelato is pure superfood nutrition. Prepared without dairy products, grains or refined sugar – just raw wholesome ingredients from cold-pressed almond milk, cashews, vanilla bean and a little organic maple syrup. You will need an ice cream machine to make this recipe as it will help churn it into the smoothest creamiest ice-cream ever.

Ingredients

Makes 750 ML

1 litre (35 oz / 4 cups) almond milk  - see notes below.

180 g (6 1/4 oz / 1 1/2 cups) raw cashew nuts, soaked for 3 hours and drained

180 g (6 oz / ½ cup) organic maples syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

1 tablespoon tahini

Method

 

  1. COMBINE milk, cashews, maple syrup and vanilla into a blender.
  2. BLEND for 2 minutes until smooth and creamy.
  3. ADD the tahini and blend again as this will help the ice-cream to emulsify properly.
  4. POUR into an ice-cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. We are blessed to have a wonderful Cuisinart ice-cream maker at Healthy Chef Head Quarters so our ice creams turn out creamy and silky everytime.

Notes and Inspiration

Ice cream is best served on the day of churning. If storing in the freezer, allow the ice-cream to sit for 15 minutes at room temperature to soften.

For a chocolate ice-cream, add 4 tablespoons Healthy Chef Naked Chocolat Dark or 100 g (3 1/2 oz) melted dark chocolate before blending. When making almond milk as the base ingredient for this recipe, I prefer to use less water when blending. The best ratio is 1 cup almonds to 4 cups water.
