Great things are discovered by complete accident and this was one of them for me! I started out by trying to find a healthy snack for my husband's late night cravings since he decided that his usual bowl of ice cream MIGHT be putting pounds around the waist? As shocked as I WASN'T, I was on a quest! I have an abundance of ground almonds from making almond milk and I needed to get rid of them, so I originally was going to make almond butter. But I couldn't get it to the right consistency because I have a really small food processor that basically sucks. I had just bought a tub of fresh strawberries and for whatever cooking-genius reason, I wondered if I could mix it all together to make a delicious fruity nut butter!
This raw, non-dairy ice cream recipe tastes just like a cinnamon bun with vanilla icing. It is so yummy, that didn't last two days in my freezer and I'm not ashamed about that. Why? Because it is super hydrating and full of live, nutrient-rich fats and sugars that my body wants and needs. Plus, no ice cream maker is necessary for this super creamy recipe.
