Raw Cinnamon-Date Caramel Ice Cream

This ice cream recipe is a crowd-pleaser and sure to please the palates of any age. Kids absolutely love the texture and taste of this recipe and the bonus is that is has only healthy ingredients for guilt-free pleasure.

Raw Ice Cream Ingredients
2 frozen bananas
1/2 cup (about 8) frozen pitted medjool dates (freeze for 1 hour)
1 tsp maple syrup *
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Raw Caramel Ingredients
1/2 cup Macadamia nuts, soaked 4 hours
1/2 cup (about 8) Medjool dates, pitted and soaked at least 30 minutes
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup maple syrup *
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt

*Although often used in raw recipes, maple syrup is not actually a raw sweetener, but far better and healthier than the common agave syrup used in many raw recipes which contrary to popular belief is neither raw or healthy.

* Why you SHOULD use Maple Syrup
* Why you SHOULD NOT not use Agave Syrup

Ice Cream Instructions
Blend the frozen bananas in your food processor or high powered blender and add the frozen Medjool dates, cinnamon, and maple syrup, and pulse until the dates are chopped into small pieces.  Scoop out the blend and it's ready to serve. The caramel is the final touch.

Caramel Instructions
Drain and rinse nuts and dates. In a food processor or high-powered blender combine all the ingredients. Process until very smooth.

Pour caramel directly over ice cream or store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 10 days. Instead of serving the ice cream right away as soft-serve, you can also place it in the freezer overnight to firm up to the consistency of regular ice cream.
