Tofu, Cashew and Maple Ice-cream


Tofu, Cashew and Maple Ice-cream

This is a very rich and creamy ice-cream and it is really easy to make. The richness comes

from the cashew nuts and tofu. It is a protein-rich ice-cream without the dairy and still

tastes amazing. Cashews and maple are a wonderful combination!


  • 600g (21oz) silken firm tofu
  • 420g (15oz) unsalted cashew nuts
  • 160ml (5.fl oz) maple syrup


  • cashew nuts, crushed
  • maple syrup


1. Place all the ingredients, except tofu, in a food processor and process until smooth. Add tofu

and process further.

2. Place in a container with a lid and put in the freezer.

3. Stir the mixture 2 hours later and freeze again until set.

4. Serve with crushed cashew nuts and pour maple syrup over it.

Tip: If you can stir the mixture every 2 hours for three times, the outcome is even better.
