The Unbakery's Vanilla Ice Cream

Megan May of the Little Bird Unbakery shares her recipe for gluten free, dairy free and processed sugar-free ice cream.


1 cup almond milk (recipe here)
1 cup coconut milk
2 cups young coconut flesh
1 cup raw cashews (soaked  2- 4 hours)
½ cup raw agave 
pinch sea salt
½ teaspoon vanilla bean powder or seeds of 1 vanilla bean
½ teaspoon lecithin
½ cup melted cold-press coconut oil

This is a really well balanced vanilla ice cream using coconut as a base. 


Equipment required: blender, ice cream maker.

Blend almond milk, coconut water, coconut flesh, cashews, agave, sea salt and vanilla extract in a blender until smooth – there should be no texture in it. 

Add the lecithin and coconut oil and blend until smooth. Add the vanilla bean powder and mix with a spoon until incorporated.

 Chill well and put into an ice cream maker for 25 minutes or however long you brand of ice cream maker suggests. Will take approximately 5-6 hours to set depending on your freezer. Makes 1L.
