Chocolate Ice Cream
1 ¾ cup raw cashews
1 ¾ cup pure water
1 cup maple syrup (organic and I like the light amber)
2 tsp vanilla (I use alcohol-free from Frontier)
¼ cup unsweetened cacao powder
(Up to ½ cup of the cacao for a more intense chocolate taste)
Combine all ingredients in a blender; blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to instructions.
* I have small Cuisinart that I love. It takes just 20 minutes. If you are not going to enjoy right away put in a container; freeze for later and it is awesome.
Yields: 4 cups
