Kick the Cow Ice-cream

This vegan scream substitute will not disappoint. My entire family loves it and it's so easy to make.


Before you begin, place your ice-cream machine inner container in the freezer over night (this is the portion of the machine that you can remove from the inner court). Here is a picture to help give you an idea:



INGREDIENTS: 


2 Cups Raw Cashews

2 Cups Filtered Water

1 Cup Organic Pure Maple Syrup

1 Whole Vanilla Bean (Optional)

1 Tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract


Step 1 - The original recipe called for blending the cashes until made into a powder, but I found the texture was a bit too gritty for me. So, I placed all ingredients in a blender (VitaMix works AMAZING). Blended until everything is liquified.


Step 2 - Remove Ice Cream maker container from the freezer and place in the base of the machine. The inside stir paddle will need to be placed inside of the container as well. Then pour your liquid mixture into the container. (Follow the instructions on your particular Ice Cream maker). Turn on and watch the liquid turn into ice Cream.

After a while you should see this liquid forming into an Ice Cream texture. Once it all forms and begins to clump together, you may want to take spatula and push it back down until it is the consistency you want.


Here was my finished product and I LOVED IT!  



It looked, smelled and tasted amazing!!! I added some fresh pecans to give it that extra something. This particular flavor was Vanilla Maple Pecan. If you are looking for an alternative to dairy ice-cream, and want to save some cash,  I suggest trying this simple recipe. You'll love it!
