Dairy-Free & Vegan Protein Ice Cream
30g Platinum Vegan Protein
A Splash of date Syrup
40g Cashew Nuts (soak overnight)
Blend it up and freeze
The end product was amazing!!! IT actually DID taste like ice cream. But there is a couple of things Id like you to take on board if you like to make this too:
1. Consider adding a tbsp or two of coconut oil to your mix before freezing. This will make the ice-cream smoother when it comes to when you scoop it out of the container. You will notice right away in the video above and the picture below that my ice cream froze a bit too solidly. I think the coconut oil would help prevent that. And/or perhaps doubling the amount of cashews
2. Consider using different kinds of sweetener. I went with date syrup because I had some nearby but am thinking maple syrup would be great here or even coconut sugar or granulated stevia if you wanted to go lower carb?
3. If you want to try this with another Protein Powder, go ahead! I stay away from whey though. And hemp, unless you're going for a chocolate ice cream by adding a ton of cocoa. That being said, cocoa liquor would probably be better than cocoa powder for texture purposes?
