Instant Strawberry Cashew Ice Cream Recipe

Instant Strawberry Cashew Ice Cream iin a bowl from the side

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.

    Hello. I’m loving your recipes, I’m just wondering if I can change the cashew nuts for other of my preference, like Brazil nut or almond. Cashew is very difficult to find in my pantry, ????. Thanks

    1. Hi, yep you sure can! Cashews are good in this as they go really smooth but you can use another seed or nut if you like. I often use sunflower seeds – not quite as smooth but its still very good 🙂
