Chocolate Cashew Vegan Ice Cream

This is a nice yummy treat for the vegan or if you are wanting to try something new.

For this recipe you do need an ice cream maker but you can get those from Wal-Mart for around forty bucks.

Using soy lecithin-free chocolate is essential; the additive will cause the base to separate.

 

Ingredients

MAKES 1 QUART

1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise

1 cup raw cashews

4 ounces vegan, soy lecithin-free, dark chocolate, chopped

½ cup plus 2 tablespoons organic or granulated sugar

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup virgin coconut oil, melted, cooled slightly

Preparation

Place vanilla bean and cashews in a large bowl and add 2 cups boiling water. Cover and let sit at room temperature at least 12 hours (hydrating the cashews thoroughly is key for a silky, smooth ice cream).

Heat chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water (bowl should not touch water), stirring, until melted. Remove from heat and let sit, stirring occasionally, until cool, 10–15 minutes.

Transfer melted chocolate and cashews and their soaking liquid to a blender. Scrape in seeds from vanilla bean; discard pod. Add sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Purée until smooth, about 30 seconds. With the motor running on medium speed, slowly stream in oil and purée until thick and creamy.

Immediately process cashew mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. (Head’s up: this will take longer than a traditional dairy-based custard to reach soft-serve consistency.) Do not chill before processing or oil will harden into tiny bits and texture will be grainy.

Transfer to an airtight container and press plastic wrap directly onto surface. Freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.

Do Ahead: Cashews can be soaked 3 days ahead; cover and chill. Ice cream can be made 1 month ahead; keep frozen.

Botox cosmetic, is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States. Botox cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is designed for injection into specific muscles to temporarily reduce wrinkles.

The effect is often dramatic, and typically gives the face a more rested appearance. Botox cosmetic relaxes the muscles that create unattractive wrinkles by blocking motor/neuron impulses, while leaving natural and attractive facial expression intact.

Botox is typically used in the upper 1/3 of the face (forehead and around outer eyes).  Botox cosmetic has been used by millions of women around the globe, and has a thirty-year history of medical use.

 

The cost of Botox is $215 for 20 units, and $12 per unit after the first 20.  The amount of units needed varies depending on what areas of the upper face are being treated.
