I know it’s not exactly ice cream weather (even here in Riyadh!) but I couldn’t wait any longer to share this delicious Cashew Ice Cream recipe with you!
This ice cream is creamy and so delicious. It is naturally sweetened with dates.
This recipe doesn’t require an ice cream maker (although you can certainly use one for quicker results).
Some amazing health benefits of cashews include:
Improving the health of your bones
Cashews are a good source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and vitamin K. All of these nutrients work together to strengthen your bones and prevent osteoporosis.
Protecting your heart
Did you know that the risk of heart disease is 37% lower for those consuming nuts more than four times per week compared to those who never or seldom consume nuts?
Studies show that eating nuts, including cashews, can also help lower your cholesterol levels.
Studies have shown that frequent nut consumption is associated with a reduced risk of gallstone disease.
Preventing and fighting cancer
Regularly eating nuts, including cashews, lowers your risk for certain cancers, especially liver and colon cancers. They can also help fight certain cancers.
Reducing your risk of diabetes
Nuts can help to control blood glucose levels, and are therefore useful in diabetes control and prevention.
