Cacao Cashew Cream Ice Cream (Paleo)

Memorial Day Weekend may have come and gone, but on my first day back to school I am day dreaming about being down the shore and enjoying this Cacao Cashew Cream Ice Cream.  Using cashew cream allows for a thick and creamy texture that will really have you questioning if its really dairy free…trust me it is!
