Mint Ice Cream, raw & vegan style!!!

This ice cream is now my very favorite!!!  It tastes better than regular mint chocolate chip ice cream to me!

Place in food processor with the S blade:

1-1/2 cups raw cashews
2 large organic avocados, ripe

Process until smooth.  Then slowly mix in:

2 cups filtered water

Then mix in:

1 cup raw agave nectar OR 1/2 cup raw honey + 1/3 cup raw honey
2 tbsp raw extra virgin coconut oil
2 tsp raw hemp oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp apple cidar vinegar (optional)
1-2 tsp natural peppermint extract or peppermint essential oil

Process until very smooth.  Then pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the directions or the machine.  If you don't have an ice cream maker, just pout into a container and place in freezer.  Take out every 1/2 hour till it's frozen and stir thoroughly.  Serve with raw cacao nibs sprinkled on top and garnished with fresh mint leaves!!!
