This horrible 115° weather has me obsessing over two things; peaches and ice cream. (Not including my overwhelming desire to leave Arizona!) When you rely on AC to keep you sane for 4-5 months out of the year, eating ice cream 3 times a day starts to sounds pretty amazing. While I was preoccupied with the thought of consuming copious amounts of both, I devised a plan to enjoy them together!

Besides Ice Cream literally being everything I need right now, the king of summer fruit (peaches) are in season! With flavor and nutrition being at their peak, now is the time to eat peaches with everything! In fact, I wasn’t happy with a simple peach flavored vegan ice cream recipe, I demand chunks of peaches incorporated in (for texture!). This not only gives the ice cream a delicious consistency, but a beautiful splash of color!

Instead of heavy cream, this vegan ice cream recipe uses Coconut Cream! Simply take a can of full-fat coconut milk, refrigerate overnight, and skim off the solidified cream! This results in an amazingly creamy, milk-like texture! Furthermore, soaked raw cashews (and their creaminess) take the recipe to a new level!

Lastly, I wanted to sweeten the ice cream with something as magical as the other ingredients. Pounds of granulated sugar would negate any health benefits of the cashews or peaches, so I went with Maple Syrup and Coconut Sugar.
