RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Raw Vegan "Nope It's NOT Butter" Pecan Icecream

2 scoops of Raw Vegan "Nope It's NOT Butter" Pecan Icecream!
  • 1 cup raw cashews (pre-soaked)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 1/3 cup raw blue agave
  • ¼ tsp himilayan salt
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp non-alcoholic organic vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raw pecans (pre-soaked and dried/dehydrated)
With the exception of the raw pecans, put all of the above-listed ingredients into your Vitamix. Blend on low slowly turning the dial to high…blend until smooth and creamy…but a bit liquidy. Stop your blender and pour a little into your container. 

Put some of the chopped pecans in with your icecream mix, stirring until its saturated with pecans throughout. Add more icecream mix and add more pecans on top … again stir and make sure your pecans are thoroughly through. Continue this process until your container is either full or the pecans are all gone. You don’t have to mix your pecans and icecream this way, I just do it this way because I literally like every spoonful to have some pecans in it. More is more with me! *smile*

Put it in your freezer. About an hour into freezing, take the icecream out and stir it. Try not to eat it all! I know you're tasting it! I sure did! Put it back into the freezer to completely freeze. In a few hours it should be frozen and ready!

Now go ahead...scoop some out and try it! You won't believe how good this tastes!
Frozen Icecream...still soft and scoopable!
