Serves: Serves: 12
 
Ingredients
  • 2 x 400g cans coconut cream, chilled in refrigerator overnight
  • 350g pitted dates, soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes
  • 3-4 Tbsp hot water
  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder, I use Organic Times Cocoa Powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean extract
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows, vegan if preferred
  • Ice-cream cones, I use Altimate Gluten Free Cones
Method
  1. Line a 9"x5" loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place a large mixing bowl into the freezer to chill.
  3. Drain water from soaked dates and place dates in a high-speed food processor, pulse on high until just broken up.
  4. Add hot water, one tablespoon at a time, with the processor running until the dates turn into a thick smooth paste. Set aside.
  5. Remove mixing bowl from freezer and without shaking or tipping the coconut cream cans, spoon only the thick part of the cream into the bowl. Discard liquid or save it for another recipe.
  6. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attached or a large mixing bowl using a hand beater, beat cream until smooth and creamy.
  7. Add cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, milk and half the thick date paste. Slowly beat to combine the ingredients into the cream. Add renaming half of date paste and beat on high until well combined and fluffy.
  8. Fold through marshmallows.
  9. Spoon mixture into lined loaf pan, smoothing out the top.
  10. Cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer for 4-6 hours until frozen or overnight.
  11. Optional: drizzle a little melted dark chocolate on the top edge of your ice-cream cones and sprinkle some crushed biscuit crumb over the chocolate.
  12. When ready to serve, let ice-cream defrost on kitchen sink for 5-10 minutes to soften slightly.
  13. Scoop into ice-cream cones. Optional: Using a kitchen lighter gun, carefully toast any visible marshmallows in ice-cream.
  14. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
Store ice-cream in loaf pan, in freezer, 2-3 weeks.
