4 cups cashews, soaked overnight
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup Dona Chai (or another chai concentrate*)
pinch of salt
1/2 vanilla bean scraped
juice of half a lemon
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/16 tsp nutmeg
*If you can't find a high quality chai concentrate, double the quantity of spices in the recipe and add 1/16 tsp ground ginger, 1/16 tsp ground cloves, and 1/16 tsp ground cardamom and increase honey to 1/2 cup.
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the container as needed. I like to blend for nearly five minutes to get a really creamy texture. Pour into an 8 inch cake pan and freeze overnight. Remove from freezer 30 minutes before serving.
