With a little blender and freezer magic, fresh raspberries, bananas and rich cashews make a sweet and flavorful “ice cream.”
6 ounces fresh raspberries
1/2 cup raw whole cashews, soaked in warm water at room temperature for 2-12 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-proof 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.)
