Raspberry Coconut icecream

Raspberry Coconut icecream

I have wanted to try my hand at making a healthy ice cream in our home for a long time and I was finally gifted an ice cream maker. YAY!!!!  So with no more excuses I started playing with recipes that would fit in with our way of eating, and here is the tasty results and a favourite in our family.  The berries are interchangeable so you can easily make this a blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, logan berry, any berry you can dream of.  Have fun and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.

****This is a Thermomix recipe, but can just as easily be done in a pot with a whisk, and then added to an icecream maker.  If you do have a thermomix and not an icecream maker you can alternatively freeze the mixture in ice blocks and when almost frozen pop back into the thermomix to turning to an icecream.

Ingredients

2 eggs,

1 vanilla bean (scrapings from the inside, and pod went into the homemade vanilla essence),

Sweetener to taste, I occasionally use stevia but a favourite is rehydrated dates blended (10 dates) , you could use anything that you like or you could leave it out,

1 can of coconut milk 380-400 gram,

2 Table Spoons of coconut oil,

pinch of salt,

1/2 cup of frozen raspberries,

1/2 cup of raw cashews  roughly chopped.
