1 Tbsp Water
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
25g Chopped, Toasted Hazelnuts
Blend together the cashew nuts and water until very smooth and creamy making a ‘cashew cream’. Take out 25g and put in a pan with the SWEET FREEDOM Dark for the toffee sauce. Place the remainder in the fridge and leave to chill.

Ice cream (cont.):
When the cashew cream is cold, blend in the SWEET FREEDOM Dark and bananas, then pour into an ice cream machine and churn until frozen. Spoon into a freezer container, drizzle the cooled toffee sauce and scatter the hazelnuts in between each layer. Top with toffee sauce and more hazelnuts.
Freeze until required. Take the ice cream out of the freezer a little while before serving to allow it to soften slightly.
