Vegan Ice Cream Recipes
Written by Mattie    
Now this is what I call ice cream!!!!!! This is like a more intensely flavoured Ben and Jerry's chocolate fudge brownie. I have to confess Mattie, that I foolishly doubted the recipe and added a few more cashews as I love the thick creamy taste of cashew but other wise left the recipe as it was (may be vegans are just unable to leave recipes alone and have to fiddle due to all the recipe alterations they make to remove the dairy etc from their old favourite recipes?) When I saw the boiled mess of cashews, sugar and water I was a little unsure but then I dabbed my finger in and the taste was divine. Once blended this became a tremendously thick and creamy ice cream and unlike other non dairy ice cream I've made this was great properly frozen and easy to scoop straight out of the freezer. Superb flavour and texture. Definitely a winner!!!..and who'd have thunk vinegar in ice cream!! You are a genius man!
Oh I should add, I forgot to whip it before putting it in the ice cream maker, I'll try that next time, though it really seemed as if it couldn't be improved upon!
