4-Ingredient Cashew Milk Chocolate Ice Cream (Dairy-Free)

I love homemade ice cream, and I love my Cuisinart ice cream maker. (I love it so much that last year for Christmas I asked for a second freezer bowl so that I can make two batches in a day.) Last summer, I did allergy-friendly, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, nut-free sorbets. But I was really looking forward to a creamier treat.

As of my son's most recent allergy test, we've been given the all-clear to introduce nuts. We started with almonds; cashews came second. Because it's a little thicker and creamier, I opted to try my first batch of nut-milk ice cream with cashew milk.

Homemade ice cream is always worth the effort.

My son and I have deemed it a winner. See what you think!
