creamy chocolate cashew soft serve ice cream


raw vegan chocolate soft serve ice cream september’s push to preserve summer has been stirred and swirled to create a creamy chocolate cashew soft serve ice cream. it’s healthy enough to eat for breakfast, treat enough for an after dinner desert, and does NOT require an ice cream maker or special blender. what?!

and did i mention it only has five ingredients?

this dairy and soy free delight can be made vegan or not depending on your sweetener of choice. typically i prefer using dates, maple syrup or raw honey but most often reach for the honey when making soft serve ice creams. they seem to turn out creamier and less icicle-ish.
