Instant Strawberry Cashew Ice Cream

The best things in life are simple and this instant strawberry cashew ice cream with just 4 ingredients is a perfect example. No churning or waiting is required, just a minute of blending and you will have frozen and thick ice cream. You need not tell anyone it’s raw vegan – they won’t notice and just think it’s a delicious strawberry ice cream. The trick to this quick recipe is to use frozen strawberries. You can buy these pre-frozen or freeze your own, but you will need to de-stem before freezing.

It’s reasonably firm but will melt quickly so either make and serve immediately or put straight into the freezer. It’s a lot more solid than the pictures and video show – it melted quickly in the 5 minutes while fiddling with the camera.

I do have an ice cream maker but since i discovered how quick and easy it is to make instant blended ice cream I haven’t used it.
