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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.
  4. If using fresh dates, put all the ingredients in the processor at the beginning. The dates can also be replaced by 250g soft pitted prunes.
  5. If unable to process during the freezing process, merely freeze in a narrow container and cut slices to serve.

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...:)

Wow!!! This was really good. I was tempted to just do the coconut milk and dates, but decieded to try the whole recipe. Yummy! (I will try it again with just the c-milk and dates. That tasted good unfrozen.) The kids liked it, thought they demanded sprinkles on it! HA! Thank you! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag game.
