JD, I think if you say nothing to your GCs about how it is made they probably wouldn't know the difference - you can tell them what's in it (banana, chocolate, mango or whatever) but skip the cream part and I reckon you will get away with it.

I don't think so Marina, mine would know it is not real ice-cream but something is healthy like I am always trying to get them to taste  ;D
They know me well enough by now to suspect anything I cook might not be as good as the bought thing - in their minds anyway but kids have been known to be wrong and Grandma is always right  ;D

just a quick Q about this recipe- does it have to be raw cashews or can it be any kind of cashews? thanks!

I'm not sure how roasted cashews would go in this, it may be worth trying, however I shouldn't imagine salted nuts would be a good idea.

I think the raw cashews would give a creamier result.

How many serves does this recipe make? My brother in law is coming for lunch tomorrow and has been told that he can't eat any animal products or alcohol, so it would be perfect.

You will get 4 serves easily AM, more if they are small serves.

I made this yesterday and was about to eat it today but like JD, I found it very hard to get out. So am letting it melt a bit as I write this.

I used soaked cashews too but not creamy like the title suggests, except in unfrozen form. Yummy nonetheless and good for our vegan days.

It made ~400ml for me.

I had some cashews in the freezer I wanted to use up, found this recipe and added a tablespoon of Tia Maria to see if it made a difference to the hardness of the ice-cream.  It was perfectly scoopable and it gave the ice-cream a nice flavour too.

Yum Judy.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
