1 cup frozen organic raspberries ½ cup frozen organic blueberries ½ cup frozen organic strawberries. PINK CASHEW CREAM: ½ cup raw cashews ¼ cup filtered water ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut 2 tablespoons raspberries (fresh or frozen) 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract Juice of 1 lemon Pinch of sea salt. TO SERV. 1 cup frozen berries ½ cup Cashew Milk (homemade or store bought) 1 tablespoon dark amber maple syrup ½ teaspoon vanilla extract Pinch of sea salt.

Place the berries in the bowl of a mini food prep or food processor. Pulse the berries about 10 times. Then, add the cashew milk, maple syrup and vanilla. Blend until creamy.

2-3 crumbled cashew cookie larabars depending on how much topping you want (you can make your own with this 2 ingredient recipe) 1 teaspoon ghee melted (or a little more if you need it) 3.5 cups mixed berries I used a mix of fresh strawberries blueberries, & blackberries. You can use frozen berries too, but it will be a little watery. Freeze for 1 hour. Stir, mashing any frozen parts with the back of a fork.

Cover; freeze until firm, about 2 hours. Using a fork, scrape granita vigorously to form icy flakes. Beat cream and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar in a large bowl until peaks form.

Divide granita among bowls or glasses. Top with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate shavings. Bite into the center of Mmmm. Made with real fruit, and bursting with sweet bits of strawberry love.

Premium strawberry ice cream is wrapped in a pillow-like layer of chewy mochi dough. Discover an entirely new experience around your favorite ice cream flavor. Add the frozen fruit smoothie ingredients into a blender, but reserve half of the cashew milk. Blend the smoothie ingredients until smooth, and pour in the remaining cashew milk slowly until desired consistency is reached.

For a thicker fruit and yogurt smoothie, add less cashew milk. And for a thinner smoothie, add a little more. Your cashew cream will taste best with good-quality raw cashews.

Look for raw cashews in the bulk bins at your local health food store or order them online for the best price.Yes, raw cashews can be expensive, but a cup (about six ounces) will give you a week’s worth of cashew cream and is much less expensive than many of the store-bought vegan cheese and cream. Vegan Frozen Berry “Cream” Pie This no-dairy dessert might make you rethink placing whipped cream on top. Berries and powdered sugar make an excellent topping alternative.

27 of 38. Chocolate Chip Cookie Crusted Cookie Dough Ice Cream. Short of serving store-bought ice cream, you won’t find a simpler, more delicious dessert than this fruit cobbler. Use any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes.

Instructions Place the cashews (for the crust) into a large food processor and pulse until broken down and crumble. Add in the dates Press the crust firmly into the bottom of a parchment lined 8x8 inch pan. You need to press it very thin, so really use Drain the soaked cashews.

  • Elsa it all looks great!!! One tip for everyone is to freshly grind your flax seeds, as whole seeds just pass through with no benefit at all.

  • I love this video! Thank you for sharing your inventive ideas. Your videos have helped inspire my love for cooking, and my goal to start a blog of my own! Keep it up:)

  • Hi! I hope all is well! I was wondering where you got a few of the items you showed in your video: the pot where you made your porridge, palm spoons, and decorative eating flowers. Thank you!

  • How do you pick out a coconut? I got one from the grocery store once but when I opened it up it smelled so bad and almost fermented. Is there a way to tell if they are ripe or overripe or was I just unlucky?

  • I love that we can get a frozen mixed berry blend, organic @ Costco. Thank you for this recipe we love nice cream!

  • Awe Vermont and Maine both so beautiful!!!!! My family and I went to Monson and Beals Island in Maine for vacation last year and the year before that…Beals was gorgeous!!!!

  • Frozen berries are linked to Hep A outbreaks incl. deaths in northern and western Europe. Important to (sadly) boil them first, I’ve learned

  • I was tired of buying those pre-sweetened instant oatmeal……so this time, I bought plain oat meal and added frozen blue berries.. it was delicious!

  • mix the cottage cheese and frozen berries in a food processor taste just like ice cream. I’m not a fan of cottage cheese but love this cures my sweet tooth with lots of protein!

  • In Denmark it is recommended to boil the frozen berries for one minute in water on the stove. Fresh and frozen berries including raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries are a common source of food poisoning due to harmful viruses and bacteria, particularly the hepatitis A virus.
    The main causes of berry contamination include being grown in contaminated water, poor hygiene practices of berry pickers and cross-contamination with infected berries during processing.

  • hey, love the video, and will defo try the recipes for next breakfasts! Was wondering where are your glass container with the bamboo lid from?

  • Hi Ellie! Loved the video, so interesting to see what you like to prepare for breakfast it gave me a lot of inspiration for morning meals. Absolutely love the pans and pots you cook in! As well as the ceramic bowl with tiny black dots �� Where do you buy all this pretty kitchenware? have a nice day! ��

  • can i ask because its frozen fruit isit easy to bite lol? or did you thaw it or like put it in warm water before… because i know most frozen fruits usually used for shakes.. please let me know

  • Your videos are phenomenal. Every time there is a new one I am so excited:) You should upload more often as everyone is craving them.

  • I add cumin,garlic & paprika to the bean mix and I put avocado on the toast first �� lol I do that with my scrambled tofu as well ���� I love IKEAs bean mix, almost got the taste by using a salsa dip mixture and I added the usual above ingredients.

  • From a health perspective, you might as well just buy regular ice cream at the store. Both are loaded with sugar and both will make you fat. The bananas will end up in your colon so you have a ton of shit inside of you to carry around while farting. Might as well just eat ice cream or almond milk cream, cheaper too.

  • Making it right now ��I love the voice over ❣️❣️ so nice to “hear” the instructions while watching the video.
    I’m making your strawberry cake from scratch today ��

  • Ok Dani omg lol so I made these amazing muffins!! So good I’ve been eating clean for 2 weeks I gotta tell ya I’m 46 full menopause Ive never slept better and inflammation is gone! Keep’m coming

  • GREAT video! AND don’t forget the CRANBERRIES…just blend them up with SWEETER berries like blues and straws..I do this 3-4 times each week for my breakfast!

  • I like your ideas but make me laugh..you talking about frozen food but you got “”fresh produce local grown”” sign hanging behind you on the wall..make a better picture

  • I had a question since at the end of the video you say the puree can only be stored for up to 2 days? I saw another puree video and it said it can be stored up to about a week in a fridge, so I’m wondering which one to follow since I want to get rid of some strawberries in my fridge that are packaged to make room in there. I wanted to use my puree but not at this moment, was going to work my cupcakes in like 4 days.

  • I have the frozen berries and cottage cheese or greek yogurt for breakfast in the morning. I use the nice cream for desserts. Will try your first recipe that is new to me.

  • Got my Vitamix for $250 last November! Comes with recipe book, and a 20oz single serve set too. If you sign up for their emails you can know when they have a sale:)

  • Danni, can you make a video about how to freeze fresh fruits ourselves? Sometimes I bought too much berries and I want to freeze them and use them later.

  • You’re so creative I’m outside of Chicago and I absolutely love watching your videos they’re incredibly inspiring and you make me want to pack my bags and move to Australia ����❤️

  • Let’s just take a moment to admire how beautiful you are! ���� love the vibe you give off in ALL your content �� super cute, helpful, enjoyable, and inspirational! Thank you for your work! I’m currently addicted to your videos!

  • Thank you!!! I’m going to try this and see if it works. I put it on high right away and was impatient thinking something was wrong with my blender

  • You need to grind the flax seeds in order for your body to properly absorb the nutrients. It also makes them easier to digest. If you don’t grind them, they will just pass through your body.

  • But “yogurt” began in Turkish, as yoghurt(there go the italics!). The Turkish word itself comes from an Old Turkish root, yog, meaning something like “condense” or “intensify,” which is pretty much what happens to milk when you let it curdle into yogurt. Makes sense! And the actual dish has been around for thousands of years-not surprising for something as simple as “old warm milk”-and was popular in ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece (where they called itoxygala, “acid milk”).

    Once the word made its way to English, though, the going got a little choppy. The first written mention of the gloopy stuff comes in 1625, when a travel writer named Samuel Purchas noted that the Turks don’t “eate much Milke, except it bee made sower, which they call Yoghurd.” And then we were off to the races: by the 1800s, people were writing of “yahourt,” “yaghourt,” “yaghourt,” “yogurd,” “yoghourt,” “yooghort,” and “yughard,” and even Evelyn Waugh, in his 1925 novel A Handful of Dust, had a character gobbling “her morning yoghourt.” Without an Academie Francaise-style language dictatorship to keep English in line, stealing words from non-Latin alphabets inevitably gets kind of messy.

    Adding to the confusion is the fact that, in modern Turkish, the word spelled yoghurt is actually pronounced more like the French word for it, yaourt, with the “gh” in the middle of the Turkish word just lengthening the vowel before it. It’s unclear whether Samuel Purchas got the hard G in his “yoghurd” from writing down what a Turkish speaker with an old-timey dialect was saying to him, or transliterating from the Arabic script used in the Ottoman Empire, but either way, we took that hard-G to heart. It helps that, compared to the very Frenchy yaourt, “yogurt” is a lot easier for an English speaker to say.

  • Omg familiar brands in the ingredients. Most cooking channels I follow are British or American so it’s a nice change to see some familiar packaging (and I’m not even in Australia, I’m in New Zealand but a lot of cross over for our supermarkets).

  • Great video! I would love to see more recipes using frozen berries. They are taking over my freezer haha:P Maybe some recipes using frozen vegetables?

  • ive started making smoothie bowls. smoothies with less liquid decorated on top with whatever i like. the possibilities are endless

  • but all the frozen berrys alway taste less sweet and i am a person who likes sweet food so i always tend to add sugar and so i dont feel like its healthy anymore��✋ but “fresh” berrys are so expensive

  • Love these tricks. Great call on the frozen raspberries actually being better than the fresh with the “cheesecake” idea. I will try that. I guess cherries aren’t berries, but in the vein of what you did, I use frozen cherries to make a cherry “nice-cream.” I blend some with the bananas and milk and throw in some sliced frozen cherries for texture and depth of flavor. I sometimes throw in some pecans too!

  • That first recipe looks amazing. I tried something like that the other morning, except I used apple instead of pear, and totally forgot about the nut butter. Where do you get the macadamia butter from? Just from the supermarket, or a health food shop?

  • frozen blueberries with honey drizzled on them and then pour over almond milk. the berries freeze the milk and it turns it into ice cream with berries in it, it is crazy good on a hot summer evening!

  • I love the cottage cheese and berries. I use my food processor for this treat. 1/2C cottage cheese and 1/2C frozen berries and process till smooth. I top mine with grated nutmeg. Sooo good! My kids who hate cottage cheese…..they eat it and enjoy it. They dont’ know its cottage cheese:)

  • Feeling so happy after watching that vid! �� Thank you Katie!!! I’m off to get me some frozen veg!….. errr…. frozen berries!! ��

  • When you make your nice cream do you only go to speed 5 at the highest? I just got my vitamix and blended my bananas on high speed but I never got the vortex, and the blender heated up my bananas so it melted:(

  • For those asking for a banana free nice cream, here is a tutorial of “How to Make a ��-free Nice Cream”! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0-O4PwJySU

  • You seem like so much fun. And you’re also a real sweetheart. Adorable. I’m going to do this for tomorrow morning’s whole grain wheat flour, whole grain oat flour pancakes. Or perhaps the same flour mix in a waffle.

  • What a crappy blender. Sister ill keep my $80 ninja that pulses and not have to mix it with a stick or whatever that dildo thing is you are using.

  • I got frozen berries at the Dollar Tree store. It’s the cheapest kind of frozen berries that I can find, and it comes in a good quantity. About a 10-oz bag. I think I am going to use them to make my very first berry smoothie! I’ve never made a frozen berry smoothie before.

  • Plzz plzzz help i need to make a frosting for strawberry cake please help me how to make frosting using of your strawberry puree method i need to make it on Friday.. Really appreciate if you advice me which ingredients will be used so i head to market to buy…waiting

  • Side note:
    I love Alexandra and her recepies. She really motivates me to eat vegan! This is not a comment on her, it’s just a simple warning.
    If you do not have an industrial blender, but just a cheap wallmart blender (like i did) USE A FOODPROCESSOR.
    Because my blender caught fire while trying this. Not kidding guys. IT ACTUALLY CAUGHT FIRE!!
    My blender was a 220-240V 430Watt.
    I used bananas, strawberries, mango and blueberries.

    Nevertheless, the nicecream tasted great and I will definately make it again once i’ve bought a food processor.

  • +Simply Quinoa how do you survive holidays/holiday family dinners beginning vegan I struggle every year since i began on my vegan journey and am only 16 and don’t want to go through this forever or at least for the next 2 years lol any advice thnks ♡

  • I tried this and omg, so yum! Couldn’t stop lickin’ the spoon. And trust me, I am a beginner cook (few days back I learnt how to boil the perfect eggs), so this is a totally easy and awesome recipe for a beginner like me. ����

  • Oooh can you make this into a little series, like make 2 or 3 more videos consisting of lunch, snacks, and dinner. They would be awesome. Thanks Ellie:)

  • I’ve been making banana ice cream for a year or two and have a generic blender, it just takes awhile and you have to stop it a lot but it ends up just as thick and creamy. I love it with cocao powder

  • I’ve tried to pure my frozen fruits and unless I use water in my blender, they just get stuck. I don’t have a food processor or anything fancy. Just a standard good old blender. Any suggestions??? Thanks! ♡

  • This was super enjoyable!! Next up maybe the same thing with dinner recipes?? And congrats on the new cookbook! I’ve already asked my sister to get it for me for Chrissy (she got me your first one for Chrissy last time!) xx

  • I LOVE to use frozen berries in yogurt. It freezes the yogurt and makes another form of nice cream!!! I also put some nuts in to add protein. Yummy!!! Sometimes I add my liquid omegas too.

  • This looks amazing! I will be making this. Good tip for getting the coconut meat out is splitting the coconut in half with a butcher knife; therefore, u can just nice scoop out the meat.

  • I came for the recipe but ended up liking the accent. I’m from the states but I really wanna go to UK one time furthermore I would like to visit Stamford bridge

  • Hi Dani, I absolutely love your channel… your energy and excitement for clean and delicious eating is such an inspiration. I’ve been eating cottage cheese mixed with a little peach yogurt and some frozen raspberries… though I thaw the raspberries first. I think I will try just the cottage cheese and put the frozen berries right in there. Yummy!

  • the frozen fruit they sell in my country it says since the berries were not washed or underwent any heat treatment they should be heated before consumptions…making them extremely inconvenient to use

  • I’m in the middle of making this right now!! Perfect timing to come across this video! Your recipes have ALWAYS been perfect! Love watching your videos!! How much corn starch and water do we use to thicken it? I didn’t see it in the video or the recipe link ☺️

  • I haven’t used your recipe for a strawberry cake but I do use one of the ways to get that strong flavor in the cake without the use of an extract. I use the reduced method. I’ve also never put a puree into a frosting but I do use freeze dried strawberries. I just blitz them up into a powder and continue to add until I get the level of flavor that I want. It’s like eating a strawberry milkshake. �� I wish I could get my hands on some of those Hood strawberries. Lucky you. Until I can, I’ll continue to use the frozen ones. I’ve ever bought a store brand and the flavor was much stronger than fresh…

  • Hello! I hope you all enjoy my five favourite breakfast recipes. These 5 are ones that I cycle across the year and can eat on repeat for months on end because they’re so healthy and delicious! xx

  • Love frozen berries! I recently got the antioxidant berry mix from Costco! Its great! I make power smooties, or add them to my oats, countless possibilities! These recipes look awesome too!
    Also on a separate note, do you have a video on cooking oils? Canola vs vegetable vs olive vs coconut, etc? If not, I’d love to see you do one, or maybe a series for each! Stay awesome Dani!

  • I live in the middle east.
    Fresh, sweet and ripe strawberries are something I’ve seldom encountered and will remain a distant dream:(
    If I’m lucky, ONE amongst a whole pack will be a good one. Rest all will be more white than red inside.

    Will frozen strawberries be good enough? Never tried those:/

  • Wow girl those look beautiful and healthy!!! I am really liking your videos. I just came across your channel last week and love it!!!!

  • love the positive vibe your giving off! Very helpful and down to earth and real, something that’s hard to find these days. Just subbed ❤️ keep up the amazing content

  • I LOVE the cereal idea!! I grew up eating cereal but am now on a more whole food plant based diet so this idea is very exciting to me!! Thank you!

  • Hi Elsa! Love these recipes especially the first one. I’d love to see more videos like this for snacks and lunches you can bring to work, a little ‘haul’ video showing us where all of your pots/plates/cups are from, a house tour, the best bits of Byron Bay like where to stay/eat/do and seeing your wardrobe collection!
    Love from cloudy Melbourne xx

  • In doing this but when it blends the mixture doesn’t move?? Like it’s too thick?? Yours moves?? I have the vitamix smart system. Its almost like its blending but nothing is moving so I’m scared the motor is gonna wear

  • For the nice cream I find adding 1/4 scoop of vanilla protein powder sweetens it and gives it the necessary vanilla flavor as well as a creamier texture. So good!

  • If I don’t have a place to buy the coconuts, what is the measurements for another alternative? Like maybe cashews or coconut butter?

  • Love this! Thank you for sharing. Do you ever make a roast chicken and/or chicken breasts as part of your meal prep? If so, I would love to learn some easy, weeknight meals with pre-cooked chicken as the head-start ingredient, but only if you have the time of course!

  • I used frozen bananas, frozen cherries, and a spoon full of cocoa powder. Top with slivered almonds or black walnuts. It’s delicious!

  • Hello! Thank you so much for this recipe and video! I will be making your strawberry �� cake this weekend and I’m prepping the strawberry filling! I do have a question, if I wanted to make a filling then thicken it with the corn starch and water but if I’m going to use it for the buttercream and the cake can I still have it thicken? Or would I have to set aside the amount I would need for the filling? Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us!

  • Ooooo love it ellie!! So envious of all the beautiful plates you own! Could you do a similar one for lunch and dinner i like the ones you can meal prep!! ��

    Also I would love love love to see a fashion video where you come up with a capsule wardrobe/10 item wardrobe for a season (your must haves and how you would style them in different ways). I think if people could see you can own fewer clothes but style them many ways, they would be more inclined to shop higher quality sustainable clothes that will last ☺️ you have the cutest style! xxx

  • Nice that you can do nuts, legumes and soy. I can’t. Also cannot do gluten, dairy, coconut, avocado, hemp, flax. So I use non vegan proteins.

  • Your last recipe (berry, banana, milk) sounds scrumptious.  New to this, but the ‘dollar tree’ had berries and couldn’t resist.  Thank you, FOR SIMPLE FYING:)))      more than 1 dollar, even at Walmart for the same brand

  • the recipes are all sooo pretty and look so delish! I will definitely try those oat dishes. you make your tofu scramble EXACTLY the same as I do, from the spices to the avo on the toast ahhaha, tastes amazing xo

  • I’m so making the nice cream with my frozen blackberries. Question: do I need that frozen banana for ice cream consistency Dani or is it just for flavor? Thx.

  • Ellie that look so yummy! I love your content so much. Even your editing skills seem better in Every video! Keep going plant based babe ����

  • Thanks for the video and the voice over is fine. By the way, I love your cake recipes. They are so delicious! I have been using them for years.
