What a better way to celebrate the warmer weather than with homemade strawberry ice cream I actually make this ice cream at least once a month… So yummy!!
Strawberry Ice Cream (Dairy Free)
2-400 ml cans coconut milk (Place your milk in the fridge overnight)
2 c. strawberries plus 1/2 c.
1/2 c. honey (or desired sweetener)
2 tsp. vanilla
Puree all ingredients in food processor. Then blend mixture in frozen ice cream maker ** for twenty minutes. Just before time is up add an additional 1/2 c. of cup up fruit.Will be consistency of soft ice cream. For convenience, I put into small individual containers and freeze. When you want to eat the ice cream, take a container out of the freezer for 10-15 minutes to soften. Why not top your ice cream with Whipped Coconut Cream…
**If you don’t have an ice cream maker put bowl of mixture into the freezer and stir every thirty minutes for a few hours.

I had missed creamy dressings very much, ranch especially. I’ve been playing with this recipe for a while and this time it turned out great. So if you’re missing ranch dressing, give it a try.

1 clove garlic- minced or 1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. dill or 1 tsp. dry dill
1 Tbsp. chives-chopped or 1 tsp. dry chives
Soak cashews in about a cup of water for a few hours or over night.
Then strain and rinse the cashews and place in magic bullet; add 1/4c water, vinegar, lemon juice, onion powder, and garlic. Puree. Put dressing into a bowl and add dill and chives, and stir.Add a little more water if it gets too thick. Will also work great as a dip. Will keep in refrigerator for about two days.
