Happy fall!

I hope everyone is enjoying the bright, beautiful colors before winter sets in. And before that happens and its much too cold to even consider ice cream, I thought I’d help you send off fall with a deliciously creamy, fall-flavored ice cream.

Vegan Caramel Apple Ice Cream

makes approximately two servings

Ingredients:

1/3 cup pitted medjool dates

3/4 cup full fat coconut milk

2 Tbs apple butter

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp good quality sea salt

Directions:

1. Soak the dates in water for about an hour. Drain, then add them to a high-speed blender along with the coconut milk. Blend until smooth.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until well-mixed.

3. Transfer to a freezer-safe dish and freeze, mixing every half hour until frozen. (If  you have a preferred method for freezing ice cream, or an ice cream maker, feel free to use it. This is just the method that works best for me.)

4. Enjoy!
