Raspberry "Nice" Cream....YUM!!

I found this recipe from www.wholefoods.com, one of our Positive Power Partners!  I have made it twice now, and trust me, you will not be disappointed!  Purchase "cashew pieces" in bulk as they are cheaper.

  • 6 ounces raspberries, fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1/2 cup raw whole cashews, soaked in warm water at room temperature for at least 2 hours, drained
  • 2 bananas, peeled, thickly sliced and frozen

Purée raspberries and cashews in a blender or food processor until smooth, adding up to 1/4 cup water if needed to purée. Add bananas and purée again, scraping down the sides often, until very smooth. 

Transfer to a tightly sealed freezer-safe container and freeze until just solid, about 4 hours. (If you make further in advance, let soften at room temperature for 15 minutes before scooping.)
