A delicious and simple to make non-dairy ice cream that I devised by combining ideas from recipes in "The Natural Way" cookbooks by Mary-Anne Shearer.

creamy and good...i used coconut cream from a couple of fresh coconuts (ran the meat through my juicer) served along w/banana sorbet, fresh straw&blu-berries & the coconut shavings as patriotic parfaits on the 4th...yummy- plan to do again with the canned stuff when I remember to pick some up... reviewed for Healthy Choices tag game...:)

  1. If using dried dates, add 30 ml warm water and chop with the metal blade in a food processor.
  2. Add all the other ingredients and process until smooth.
  3. Freeze in ice cream machine or freeze for about an hour in a freezer proof container, beat or process again, freeze and process again after another hour.
