Berry Swirl Ice Cream (Vegan, Dairy-free)
So far as ice cream goes, berry swirl ice cream is my favourite. Intense, vivid strawberry or raspberry sorbet threaded with the creamiest waves of vanilla is difficult to beat. I typically make a basic model (and can put up that model earlier than the weekend), however needed to problem myself to create a vegan, dairy-free model as effectively. Lots of you requested one after I posted about it to Instagram the opposite day.
I attempted various completely different approaches right here, and landed on a creamy, cashew milk base. Oat milk turned out too icy, and I needed to go for one thing apart from coconut milk, which I think would have been the plain alternative.
I additionally needed to simplify and streamline the method as a lot as potential, questioning if I might get away with making a “blender custard” as an alternative of a cooked custard, the extra typical strategy. And I used to be actually pleased with the outcomes! You positively get delicate nuttiness from the cashews, and theres the mouthfeel that jogs my memory of the hazelnut or pistachio gelatos you may get in Italy, however it’s very nice alongside the colourful berry swirl. The dairy primarily based model I make makes use of a basic vanilla swirl, creamy brightness. This can be a barely completely different beast, however an enormous hit with children and adults!
