Lemon Curd Ice Cream must be the love child of a Zesty Lemon Tarte and Smooth Vanilla Ice Cream.
You can either blend it all together or drop blobs of lemon curd into the semi-frozen ice cream to create bubbles of lemon happiness amidst dreamy vanilla.
RECIPE: RAW VEGAN LEMON CURD ICE CREAM
1 cup raw vegan lemon curd – RECIPE
1/2 cup water or coconut water
1.5 cups soaked cashews *
1 vanilla bean
1/2 cup liquid sweetener – coconut nectar, honey, maple syrup or agave
1 pinch sea salt
* soak cashews overnight, rinse + store in the freezer to have some ready anytime
How to make the ice cream:
Place all ingredients except lemon curd into a blender and process until creamy.
WITHOUT ICE CREAM MAKER: Refrigerate to thicken, then pour into a container and stir in dollops of lemon curd. Swirl for a marble effect.
WITH ICE CREAM MAKER: churn mixture in an ice-cream maker, stir in lemon curd at the end of churning.
Tip: the ice cream will become a bit harder every time it is taken out the freezer so the best is to either store it in portions or enjoy it with friends all at once 🙂

“soft dates” = medjool are usually best. If necessary, soak briefly and drain. The soaking water is super sweet by the way!
