Hi Rawpriestess and girls and guys,
I was looking at some posts back in Oct. 2004 about using an electric icecream maker, I purchase one that uses ice at my local thrift store and I need to know if any of you can remember the measurements that you used when you use your machine to make raw icecream.
If you do please share with us.

I am a *HUGE* fan of raw ice cream.. you have no idea. I have been eating this almost everyday. My favorite flavor so far has been chocolate by far. But the vanilla is perfect on other treats. This is rich and has the texture of gellato. I love how you don't feel guilty eating this for breakfast or getting that horrible "dairy coating" in your mouth!
Here is the 'base' that I use. The recipe is from 'Raw Food, Real World':
2 cups of raw cashews, soaked 4 hours or more
2 cups coconut meat
1 cup filtered water (use the coconut water for more coconut flavor)
1 cup agave (I use about 1/2 cup so it is not so sweet)
1/4 cup coconut butter
2 tblsp vanilla extract
1/2tsp sea salt
Blend this all in the vita mix. If you don't have a vita mix, watch out! You might want to do 1/2 water + cashews in one run, 1/2 water + coconut meat in another run, then mix it all together. It is VERY thick and I almost killed my blender doing it. Now that I have a vita mix, it is no problem. If you use less agave, add in more water to balance out the liqued.
Now, you can flavor it! Add in 2 tsps vanilla or 1/2 bean for vanilla. 1-2tblsp cocoa nibs ground up for chocolate, or carob, or whir in some mint leaves, lemon zest, have fun! Use watermelon and take out some of the water, just be creative! Use some hazelnuts in place of the cahews..
Pour this into your ice cream maker and follow it's instructions.

Oh my gosh,
dhammala, thank you. I can't wait to try the recipe, have run out of agave and vanilla extract, will have to get my husband to pick up some tommorow.
What a wonderful treat it will be for both of us.

You could use honey as a substitue, if you use are the type to use honey. :) It would just add the honey flavor.. I bet that would be really good in a vanilla. Also, since honey is not as sweet as agave, you might want to use more honey and less water. You will just have to play with it and see how it tastes! I don't think you can go wrong here!!!
