Blueberry ice cream (with tofu and cashews)

The sun came out for a minute the other day – and God knows there’s not been many of those warm moment this summer in Sweden. So of course we made ice cream. Really delicious blueberry ice cream, with antioxidants and vitamins and healthy fats and protein. Vegan and gluten free and sweetened with maple syrup. Four kids were in the house and they all loved it as did all us parents. I highly recommend this one whenever you’re after a healthier kind of sweet treat.

Blueberry ice cream (with tofu and cashews)
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 5
Ingredients
  • 1 cup soaked cashew nuts, soaking water removed
  • 1.5 cups blueberries, ideally frozen
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup silken tofu
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter
  • A pinch of salt
  • 4 to 5 gluten-free ready made ice cream cones
  • A few chopped cashew nuts to garnish
Instructions
  1. Soak the case nuts for a few hours or over night, alternatively soak them in hot water for 15 minutes (which is what I had to do today). Then remove the soaking water.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender and let it run for a few good minutes until you have a completely smooth cream. Then pour it into your ice-cream maker, and let it run until you have a firm, almost frozen consistency. If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour the mix into a container, place in the freezer and stir a few times until you have the right consistency (this will take you between 1 and 4 hours).
  3. Place the ice cream into a plastic bag with a small hole in one of the corners and press it into the cones (this is good if the consistency is more creamy/less frozen). Alternatively, make scoops (better if the ice cream is harder). Fill the cones and garnish with the chopped cashew nuts.

  • Tagine is having a huge revival in my kitchen and this is my standard way to cook it, with potatoes, chickpeas and raisins and a whole array of fragrant spices. And what goes with it is almost equally important: always yoghurt, pomegranate seeds, fresh herbs, pistachios and millet. The perfect thing to serve any day of the week this season. #vegan #plantbased #planetplantbased #meatfreemonday #vegansofig #wholefoods #foods4thought #vegetarian #vegerarisch #glutenfree #glutenfrei #eatfortheplanet #eeeeeats #plantbased #bestofvegan #thrive #thrivemag

A project which will take the food-blog I launched four years ago and named Planet Plant-Based into its next very exciting phase. I really can't wait to share more info very soon. I'll also have to share the recipe for this edamame spaghetti with tofu bolognese - honestly such a crowd pleaser, and super easy to make! #planetplantbased #eatfortheplanet #excitingtimes #vegan #vegetarian #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #meatfreemonday #glutenfree #glutenfrei #vegetarisch #plantbased #glutenfreepasta #bolognese #foodblog #organic #wholefoods #foods4thought
