Dairy-Free Ice Cream experiment

No, it’s not a sorbet. It’s an ice cream made using Almond Milk and Cashew Cream instead of Milk and Heavy Cream.

The Cashew Cream was the result of soaking raw cashew nuts in water overnight and pureeing them in a blender. The cream burns easily so whisk/stir it constantly as it heats up and boils.

Choose your own favorite dried fruits and nuts, and even add chocolate freckles! (See the Tangerine Ice Cream & Dark Chocolate Freckles recipe).

I made mine a Bourbon Trail Mix Ice Cream, adding 1/4 cup of Rebel Yell Bourbon to the churning stage.
