*Whipping Cream/Ice Cream

A very old recipe gave me this idea and reworked it till it worked. It's a substitute for whipping cream or it could be ice cream:

1 cup raw (skins removed) almonds or cashews*, soaked for 4 hours or more
1 cup of organic coconut meat a fresh young coconut
1/2 cup distilled water or water from the young coconut
1/2 cup of Yacon Syrup or Veg Glycerin
1/2 cup coconut butter for firm or 1/4 cup for softer cream
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Seeds of 1/2 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan or Celtic Salt

In a high speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. (all ingredients should have liquified without any grit left) Pour in a container and refrigerate 2 hours or more. Scoop with an ice cream scoop onto your favorite dessert.

*Cashews might not be acceptable. I cannot see nor print the new food lists.

You may have to adjust the yacon syrup or vegetable glycerin measurements and/or/may not need to add stevia. Adjust to your taste buds.

Suggestions: try adding some unsweetened Organic Pumpkin puree or organic flavorings.
Original Post
I buy my almonds already prepeeled at Whole Foods Market. They are found in the Organic Section.
There is a post by xEVAx on Tofu Mayonnaise (do a search) that explains how to remove the skins but here it is:
*"To blanch almonds (to remove skin): in a small pot, bring enough water to cover the almonds to a boil, remove from heat and soak almonds for approx. 10 minutes, drain and rinse with cool water, now the peels can be removed....a tedious task but worth it. The easiest way to do this is to hold the almond between two fingers and let it pop out of the hull. Yay!"
I am sure you can do this in the process since the almonds will have to soak for at least 4 hours. But I would change the water after the peeling.
Another note which I omitted... when using the yacon syrup or veg glycerin commence with using 1/4 cup and some stevia then taste. If your happy at that stage freeze. If not continue to add the ingredients till your content with the results.
Also as a tip, the Wilderness Family Naturals sells a heavy coconut cream that can be whipped into whipping cream....no kidding. Just make sure the cream is cold. Take a beater and whip the cream till it forms soft peaks! Just add some seeds of a vanilla bean and stevia. Google the family's name.
They also have some candida safe recipes. But like always consume all the ingredients in moderation or maybe for us some less of moderation.
Thanks for your reply. This all sounds so good. Something like whipping cream seems too good to be true. Cool Whip always made me feel rotten (no doubt!), but real whipping cream wasn't much better, being lactose intolerant.

I'm going to check out their website right now!!
