6 Ingredient Refined-Sugar-Free, Banana-Free, Nut-Free Vegan Ice Cream

  • 16 medium-to-large dates, soaked and drained well
  • the flesh from one ripe avocado
  • 1 can of full-fat coconut milk plus just the coconut cream from another can (I use Thai Express brand because it doesn't contain sulphites, which my body hates)
  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • about 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • about ½ tsp. salt

Blend the dates and avocado well in a blender/food processor. Add the coconut milk/cream and cocoa powder, blend further. Add salt and vanilla to taste, blend until you have a smooth slurry not unlike melted ice cream. Pour into ice cream maker and work mixture until its consistency is at least as firm as soft-serve ice cream. Scrape mixture into freezer-safe container and enjoy your stash of simple, homemade, delicious ice cream.
