home made ice cream really does taste better than pretty much any store bought alternatives
Home-made ice creams are very different to the ones you can buy in any supermarket. For a start you know exactly what went into them. Because of this, home made ice cream really does taste better than pretty much any store bought alternatives.
always best enjoyed ‘fresh’ – a perfect excuse to eat ice cream if ever there was one
There are not many things more satisfying than sitting in the sun enjoying a bowl of your fresh (because they are always best enjoyed ‘fresh’ – a perfect excuse to eat ice cream if ever there was one) home made ice-cream. For this recipe you will need the following…
- 200g Cashew nuts
- 500ml Water
- 160g Sugar
- 80g Coconut Oil
- 2tsp Vanilla Extract
- 190g Jar of our Baobab & Orange Jam
The main things you’ll need to make this recipe are a blender, ice cream maker, saucepan and a spatula. You can make this without an ice cream maker, but it’s so much easier with one – we’re going to assume you have one.
This recipe should take about 30 minutes preparation and around 4 hours for chilling and freezing. Start first thing in the morning and by lunch time you can enjoy the fruits of your labours.
- Start by making cashew cream by blending the cashews and water. For an extra smooth consistency, you can soak the cashews in the water for a few hours beforehand.
- Pour the cream into a saucepan, add the sugar and coconut oil, and stir over a low heat until everything has melted together.
- Add the vanilla essence (you can use 2 fresh vanilla pods instead if you wish) and continue stirring to make a custard. Ensure the custard doesn’t stick and brown on the base of the pan. Using a flat wooden spatula is best for this.
- Place the custard in a bowl in the fridge for a few hours until chilled, then transfer to an ice cream maker. When the mixture is nearly set, transfer to a freezer container and add . jar of jam. Stir in the jam to create a ripple effect, then put in the freezer to fully set.
- Serve with a dollop of the remaining jam on top and enjoy.
