Date Nice Cream
Ice cream. Nice cream. Just plain DELICIOUS. Call it what you want, but this will knock your socks off. For those of you with furrowed brows and questions, nice cream is ice cream made of frozen fruit blended up until creamy decorated with a plethora of goodness like chocolate, caramel, etc. I was attempting to make some sort of chocolate truffle, and I ended up burning the chocolate to the bottom of the metal pot, and was stuck with this pasty, sticky, but delicious concoction. This is easy and can easily be adjusted to change the consistency, texture, and taste, but my recipe will create a dessert worth of both the names of ice cream or cookie dough. The dough-like texture comes from the almond flour that is in that gives it a little bit of oomph while the taste comes from the dates, peanut butter, and coconut oil. When frozen, it creates a delightful texture guaranteed to make your taste buds sing! If you do make the recipe, let me know what you think and if you make any changes or do a variation different from what I have here!
My recipe is for just a couple of servings, but you can easily double, triple, or maybe even quadruple the recipe if you have a lot of curious friends or just want to eat it all yourself. The Date Nice Cream has a consistency that really is a mixture between ice cream and cookie dough, and it’s completely tasty. It would be a lovely treat to make as a dessert for a date night with your lover, husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, or whatever label you put on your significant other. They will likely thank you for it. 🙂
