I had originally soaked some cashews with another recipe in mind, but I decided instead to try this cashew maple ice cream from thevintagemixer.com . You just blend up the cashew nuts, some water, coconut oil, sweeteners and vanilla, then put in the freezer in a shallow tray.  You stir the mixture regularly: I gather that this helps make the icecream creamy, rather than just icy.

We tried some tonight with a drizzle of maple syrup over each serve, and we all enjoyed it. The icecream was quite firm initially but softened up quickly.  Next time I make this, I’ll put it in the icecream maker and see if there’s much change in texture.
