Raw Vegan Strawberry Ice Cream:
A Raw Food Recipe by Joanna Steven

Serves: 4

Prep Time: About 1 1/2 hours, mostly inactive.

Every Summer, I buy several pounds of strawberries to freeze for the winter months, and keep a few pounds for smoothies and other treats like this
luscious ice cream. My first attempts at cooked ice cream were not so great. I guess I should stick to raw, right? Probably, because this strawberry ice cream is delicious!

1 1/2 pounds fresh strawberries, chopped
1/2 cup coconut crystals
2 tablespoons honey or your favorite liquid sweetener
1 water or almond milk
1 cup soaked cashews
1 T creme de cassis (optional)


  1. Combine the strawberries, sugar and honey in a bowl, and let stand for
    an hour while the cashews are soaking.
  2. Blend everything until smooth, then strain into a container.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator, then freeze in your ice cream maker according
    to the manufacturer’s instructions. This ice cream freezes hard once
    transfered to the freezer but softens in about 10 minutes to a scoopable

    Is that 1 cup water or almond milk?

    Kevin, coconut crystals are palm sugar? I thought it was coconut sugar. I keep it around and didn’t see anything about it being palm sugar on the container. Guess I’ll have to look a little more closely?

    what is creme de cassis?

    Hi guys!

    Yes, it’s 1 cup. Coconut crystals are also known as coconut sugar or palm sugar. I get mine from the Coconut Secret company. They also make coconut nectar, coconut aminos, etc.

    This ice cream, like all ice creams, tastes best when fresh. Add homemade raw chocolate chips, crushed strawberries, or anything else you like in the last minutes of churning. Perfect!
