1 cup cashews
2/3 cup coconut milk or almond milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/4 tsp. Redmond Real Salt
3 drops food-grade peppermint essential oil
2 Tbsp. matcha green tea powder
Mint leaves, to serve
Organic chocolate, shaved, to serve
- In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine all ingredients (except for the mint leave and chocolate) and blend until mixture is creamy and frothy.
- Pour mixture into a freezer-safe container and freeze for 4-5 hours or overnight.
- To serve, garnish with shaved chocolate and mint leaves.
Liana’s tip: For even creamier ice cream, after freezing the mixture for a few hours, transfer it back to blender or processor. Blend again while still partially frozen and then freeze for another few hours.
