Ingredients

Scale

  • 3/4 cup raw, unsalted cashews, soaked in water for 1-2 hours
  • 1 15 oz can full fat coconut milk
  • 7 oz vegan cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt

  • ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch salt

Instructions

Ice Cream:

  1. Soak the cashews in room temperature water for 1-2 hours (or 30 minutes in hot water). Drain and rinse.
