Are you in the middle of the same heat wave that we are? As a passionate warm weather lover I am pretty happy about this, other than I would love a nice cool backyard pool right about now. Or some air conditioning. Either one. I have even debated invading the local kiddie pool. I still might.
One thing about this weather is that I do not want to cook anything! The heat from the oven or stove just kills me right now. All I want to do is eat ice cream. Or raw carrots from the Farmer's Market. Fresh carrots are the best are they not? Every summer my hands turn orange from eating so many. There is no lacking in beta carotene around here let me tell you. Does this happen to anyone else? Please don't tell me I am the only carrot addict around here.
Anyways I hope you aren't sick of the ice cream recipes (in my books there can never be enough ice cream recipes) because I have another one for you today. Now I am sure you can tell by the photos that this one was made before I got my new camera. The pictures just are not that great I admit. But don't judge this recipe by its pictures please! I still have a couple recipes left that I photographed with my old camera that I will be sneaking in here and there. Please don't judge.
This ice cream has a lighter flavour with hints of cashews, coconut and banana. It also has the added benefit of grassfed gelatin
which we all know I love and highly recommend. If you didn't see my post about the health benefits of gelatin you can find it here.
I hope you enjoy this Paleo Cashew Cream Ice Cream as much as I do! As always I love hearing what you think about my recipes. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to get in touch. And please follow me on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook for even more recipes, health information and pretty pictures.
Oh and I keep forgetting to mention that the promotion for We Can All Scream For Ice Cream is still going on. Two of my fellow blogging friends put together this amazing recipe collection that is SCD, GAPS and AIP friendly! Get your copy here.
