This is the fastest, easiest, and most nutritious ice cream you can make. What’s more, not only does it taste great, you don’t need an ice cream machine to make this yummy treat. As long as you have a fairly high-powered blender, you can enjoy this soft-serve dessert.
2/3 cup raw, unsalted Brazil nuts
2/3 cup fresh medjool dates, pitted (about 8 dates, more if you prefer a sweeter ice cream)
1/2 cup water
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
20 medium-sized ice cubes
1. Blend the Brazil nuts, dates, water, and vanilla together until smooth.
2. Add the ice cubes and blend until smooth.
Options: add fresh strawberries or blueberries for a real treat.
