Fresh strawberries in season don’t need much to make them a perfect dessert all by themselves! But when it gets so hot outside, they make a delicious and refreshing gelato as well-olive oil and cashews give a rich mouthfeel and the strawberries are bursting with juicy goodness. Pair this vegan strawberry gelato with fresh summer strawberries and figs to keep it really fresh!
A drizzle of balsamic glaze is a nice addition as well both for the fruit and the ice cream.
I also recommend allowing the ice cream to soften up at room temperature before scooping to help it have the right texture.
