Peel and core 3-4 apples and cut into small pieces no bigger then 1/4 inch in size. Place the chopped apple in a sauce pan along with 1/2 cup of apple juice. Allow the apple pieces to simmer on medium-high heat until the liquid has evaporated and the pieces of apple have become soft. Once cooked, remove from heat and set aside
In a blender add the soaked cashews, vanilla extract, honey, almond milk, apple juice, cinnamon and nutmeg and blend until smooth.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the apple chunks and chopped pecans
Pour the mixture into a pre-chilled ice cream maker and use according to directions
Once the ice cream has finished churning and the ice cream is of the right consistency, serve immediately or pour into a container and store in the freezer. The ice cream should be removed from the freezer approximately 15 minutes before serving to soften
