Just trying to to get some slightly healthier desserts into the repertoire, which surely can’t do any harm after all 🙂 Especially if it means that you can eat it for breakfast.
Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream with Salted (Date) Caramel Sauce and Cinnamon Roasted Almonds
1/2 cup vegan milk (I used rice milk)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 Tbsp cornflour
1 can coconut cream (about 400mls)
1/2 cup dates
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup whole raw almonds
Mix together all the ingredients for the ice cream, making sure you stir the coconut cream well so there are no lumps. Churn in your ice cream machine.
Soak the dates by covering them in hot water. When soft, blend them until a sauce forms (maybe adding more water if needed) and add some salt to taste.
Next preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with a bit of baking paper. Mix the brown sugar, hot water, cinnamon and almonds together, then pour onto the tray. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden and toasted.
To serve, layer the ice cream, sauce and almonds and enjoy!
