Healthy Nut and Caramel Ice Cream Recipe

After making the cheesecake I had to have a go at making icecream! I decided to try using walnuts as well as cashews. I wondered if it would make a lot of difference to the texture but it didn’t. Still as creamy as ever.
This was my first attempt so I wouldn’t worry if you don’t the exact amounts of ingredients, give it a go with what you have!
Unfortunately, not the best presentation but there was no ice cream scoop 😦

Recipe

Makes 1l
For the caramel
130g pited dates (soaked in hot water until soft)
2-3tbs water
1tbs honey
Tsp lemon juice

For the ice cream
270g walnuts (soaked in water for at least 4h)
200g cashews (soaked in water for at least 4h)
170g apple sauce
2 -3 tbs honey
1 tbs lemon
About 200ml water
Vanilla and cinnamon optional

To make the caramel place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Set aside.

For the icecream, place all the ingredients in a blender except the water, add the water gradually. You have enough when the mixture blends properly. It takes a while to get it going. Blend until its as smooth as can be.
Add some crushed walnuts of you like.

Layer the ice cream and the caramel into a tupperware and then swirl together and pop it in the freezer.
