Smooth Vanilla Nice Cream


1 C Cashews
2 tea Smooth Vanilla OPP
1 tea Vanilla Extract (optional)
1/4 C Agave
6 T Coconut Milk

How's THAT for, short, sweet, and to the point?

Yup!  The recipe upfront!

Now I should probably tell you a little bit more about this recipe and raw vegan vanilla ice cream adventure, right?  Well, here goes!  After soaking my cashews for an hour or two I put all of the ingredients you see above in my Vitamix and blended on high for 30 seconds.  I then froze the 'ice cream' and dished it up and into my lovely bamboo bowl and topped with Jem Organics Maqui Camu Super Berry Butter.  This was off the charts AMAZING!

I used Garden of Life's Smooth Vanilla Organic Plant Protein in this recipe, too!  The vanilla aroma upon opening the bag was pure HEAVEN!  It added a great deal of flavor and I think next time I might add more to it, too!  YUM!


  1. Hi Jennifer,

    First of all, thank you so much for following my blog link from Suituapui's blog and for your kind comment, I really appreciate it and you are welcome any time.

    This looks absolutely decadent. And I love the fact that it is short, sweet and to the point, this is my kind of recipe. Thank you so much for sharing, you have a lovely blog. :)

    1. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting :) Let me know if you try a version of this recipe! I LOVE the Lion in your avatar!

  2. Ahhhhh!!! Coconut milk is very good for health! For years and years, people have been avoiding coconut milk as it was put in very bad light - their attempt to promote their own oil, corn...or whatever. Now, everyone knows better - a must sought-after dairy substitute.

    Hi, Linda! You're here too, eh?

    1. Very true! And YES...I hopped over to Linda's site from yours and she stopped over here as well! Thanks for connecting us! She's awesome!

  3. This sounds amazing, wow! I have not tried my own frozen cashew ice cream yet, but yum!

  4. OMG this looks so good! I want some right now ;p Although, it sounds like I could make some pretty quickly =)
    Love the bamboo bowl too!

    1. Thanks! Yes! Super easy to make with a high speed blender!
