Looking for something fun, summery and healthy to take to a party. Nice cream, nice cream, we all scream for (homemade Raspberry) Nice Cream. (Pssst! That’s ice cream without the dairy.) Whip up this cool treat with just three ingredients: raspberries, cashews and frozen bananas. Please note cashews. The recipe serves 4, so maybe make a double or triple batch.

Ingredients: 

  • 6 ounces raspberries, fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1/2 cup raw whole cashews, soaked in warm water at room temperature for at least 2 hours, drained
  • 2 bananas, peeled, thickly sliced and frozen

Method: 

Purée raspberries and cashews in a blender or food processor until smooth, adding up to 1/4 cup water if needed to purée. Add bananas and purée again, scraping down the sides often, until very smooth.

Transfer to a tightly sealed freezer-safe container and freeze until just solid, about 4 hours. (If you make further in advance, let soften at room temperature for 15 minutes before scooping.)
