Salted Caramel Fit Chew Ice Cream

I know it's November, but it still feels like summer to me. Here's a super delicious and creamy ice cream recipe. I got this idea on pinterest and here's the original blog. But I took a shortcut and used Arbonne caramel fit chews instead of making it with sugar. It turned out so good that I told my husband it was real ice cream while he ate it, and he believed me! When I told him it was detox friendly, he was speechless. This was dangerously easy to make. You don't even need an ice cream maker!!!!

Cheers to a never ending summer. 

1 cup of cashews (soaked over night)
1 can of organic coconut milk (make sure it's not low fat)
3 tbsp of melted coconut oil
10-20 melted caramel fit chews (depending on how sweet you'd like the ice cream)
1 tbsp of sea salt

Paso a paso:

1) In a food processor, mix the softened cashews and coconut milk with the melted coconut oil. Let it mix for about 10 minutes until it's very smooth. 

2) While the cashews are blending,  peel and place fit chews in a glass measuring cup, and put it in the microwave of 30 seconds. Check that they are melting and add another 15 second in the microwave. Repeat until very soft, almost liquid-like.  Add caramel immediately to the food processor.

3) Add the sea salt and let it go for another 10 minutes (or more). Place mixture in a plastic bowl and freeze for 4 hours. Thaw 30 minutes before serving so it's nice and smooth.

4) Enjoy by itself or on top of some protein brownies! We actually had it on top of some warm pecan "coffee" cake and a side of fresh strawberries. Drool.
