If you could name your favorite childhood summer memory, what would it be? My list is a mile long, but at the top is going to the Antietam Dairy to get black raspberry ice cream. I wanted to recreate my favorite childhood ice cream, but with a dairy free version. It’s pretty darn close to the real deal. And you will want to make it too!
Antietam Dairy’s Black Raspberry Ice Cream
For those of you not fortunate enough to have been to the Antietam Dairy in my wonderful hometown of Waynesboro, PA, it is a local dairy and they make their own ice cream. No chemicals. No preservatives. Cow to cone. The real deal. The best in the world. My favorite flavor is black raspberry.
Up until I couldn’t eat dairy any more, I would love to go back home in the summer and enjoy a cone with my family. Actually, it looks like in this picture, I have mint chocolate chip and Michelle has black raspberry. Antietam Dairy even has an ice cream truck that travels about town to events like the Summer Jubilee on the 4th of July.
This recipe took several iterations to perfect, but I think I finally found the right combination of black raspberry deliciousness.
You can use fresh or frozen black raspberries. I used frozen. I even topped the ice cream with some additional frozen black raspberries.
The black raspberries create such a vibrant hue. Are you wondering if a black raspberry and a blackberry are the same plant? The answer is no. Black raspberries are Rubus occidentalis and blackberries are Rubus allegheniensis. Similar, yet different.
Black raspberries are healthy little superfoods. They are full of antioxidants, they are great cancer fighters (including breast cancer), they are heart healthy and anti-inflammatory.
This recipe is so easy to make. Soak the cashews for a few hours or overnight, and then throw everything in your blender or Nutri Ninja and freeze.
Everyone who has tried this so far has loved it. Even my Mom who is a bigger lover of Antietam Dairy black raspberry ice cream than myself. It’s summer time! And time to make some black raspberry ice cream.
