Are you hip to the health benefits of hemp seeds? These chewy little beauties offer a wealth of perfectly balanced essential fatty acids, concentrated complete plant protein, and essential trace minerals and vitamins. And as this recipe by Natalia Vanthienen of Naturelle proves they are also incredibly versatile! A delectable dairy free vanilla ice cream made with a base of hemp seeds, cashews, banana, and avocado, sweetened with raw honey (or liquid sweetener of choice), and enhanced with a touch of lemon and real vanilla bean powder.YUM!
- 80 gr of cashews, soaked for 8 hours
- 40 gr hemp seeds, soaked for 15 min
- 1-2 bananas
- 1 avocado
- 2 spoons honey (agave, maple syrup for a vegan version)
- 100 ml water
- 1 spoon lemon juice
- vanilla powder
This ice-cream is so easy to make: all you have to do is to mix all the ingredients in a blender until it’s all mixed up, creamy and fluffy. The bananas and the avocado should be very ripe and frozen for at least 12 hours.
