Delicious non-dairy ice cream

I tasted this at the local health food store and it was delicious!. So I fiddled with the listed ingredients and think I’ve got it pretty dang close. So here you go. A fantastic substitute for those who like mint chocolate chip ice cream, but don’t do dairy:

2 cups Raw Cashew butter
1/3 cup Coconut oil
1/2 cup agave syrup
1/2 tsp. Mint extract
handful of chocolate chips.

Gently melt the coconut oil on the stove. Turn off the heat and add the cashew butter and agave. Mix well until creamy. Add mint extract and chocolate chips, mix well. Cool it in the fridge and then eat up! Oh, and you don’t need much of it to get full satisfaction!

  1. Wow! How perfect! I was just dreaming about mint chocolate chip ice cream today. :) It was always my favorite. I’ve only had raw ice cream (aside from the kind I make with my juicer) at the Laughing Seed, and I bet this recipe is similar to theirs.

    I’m also about to try making mint extract since I have a backyard full of it. The directions I found said to let the mint and alcohol sit in the sun. Does this seem right to you or would you store it in the dark?

  2. Hmmm… I’ve put my oils out in the sun, but never my tinctures. I’ve always kept them in a cool, dark place. Also, what you are making, if it is just mint and alcohol, will be a tincture. An extract is more concentrated (so stronger flavor). You can get it at the health food store. Still, the tincture would add a nice flavor to the ice cream too!
