Cherry Cheese Cake Ice Cream (Dairy Free/ Vegan/ Paleo/ Refined Sugar Free/ No Ice Cream MachineNeeded)

So it is July and apparently that means it’s National Ice Cream Month. Hmm, so didn’t know there was such a thing but July would be great for it. It’s the middle of summer and who doesn’t like ice cream to help you cool down? As I’ve said before, just because you have food allergies does not mean that you have to miss out! For more yummy ice cream try Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream, Strawberry Ice Cream,

If you can’t have nuts then try my Dark Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream.

Cheese cake is one of those lovely desserts that I have missed. I started making this ice cream last summer and it definitely satisfies the craving for cherry cheese cake :)

Cherry Cheese Cake Ice Cream-Paleo

I have been playing with dates in my recipes more and decided to try them in ice cream. They work out great! If by chance you can’t have dates, no problem. You can just use honey or maple syrup instead.

Just remember that you need to start preparing for this recipe the day before you are actually going to make it!

Cherry Cheese Cake Ice Cream

Cherry Cheese Cake Ice Cream (Dairy Free/ Vegan/ Paleo/ Refined Sugar Free/ No Ice-Cream Machine Needed)

1-400 ml. can of full fat coconut milk

1 c. raw cashews

3/4 c. dates

2 c. cherries- pitted and chopped

2 tsp. vanilla

The night before making your ice cream, place coconut milk into the fridge. Soak cashews and dates in double the water. (I’ve never soaked them together. I use separate dishes)

When making your ice cream, drain cashews and dates. Place cashews, dates, coconut milk, one cup of cherries and vanilla in food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth. Place into ice cream maker, add the other cup of chopped cherries and follow manufacturers instructions. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, just place mixture into freezer safe container. Add the other cup of chopped cherries. Put into freezer and stir every 30 minutes. Keep frozen in a sealed container until ready to eat.

When serving your ice cream,  let sit out of the fridge for 15 minutes before serving.

      You could try almonds. People make almond milk by soaking the almonds and putting them through the blender. Let me know.
      I’ve also added my Dark Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream recipe for people that can’t have nuts.

    Looks yummy. I don’t have food allergies so I would probably just use heavy cream instead of full fat coconut milk. I have never tried coconut milk, so I don’t know if I would like it or not. This is definately going into my no-bake roundup! Thanks for bringing it to The Yuck Stops Here recipe link party. I’m pinning and stumbling this and look forward to seeing what you’ll bring next week! HUGS
